Today i was preparing for a talk on saturday that i suddenly realised that i need to beam my phone screen to any projector using a computer connected with a Firefox OS powered device. So out of curiosity and a little research, i have successfully remote emulated my Geeksphone Keon to my Mac.
You can do the same on a computer running Windows, Linux and Mac and some Java. Here’s how:
- Your Firefox OS/Android powered device
- USB sync cable
- Download the Android SDK for your OS here
- Download Java-based AndroidScreencast here.
- If you don’t have Java installed on your system, download it here.
1.) Open Terminal/CMD and check if your system recognizes your device by typing: adb devices
2.) If full_keon appeared on the screen then your computer recognises your Keon device. Now type: javaws <androidscreencast.jnlp file> on the terminal/CMD.
That should do the trick! Enjoy!!!
Note: Your device must be on the homescreen. It will be easier for you to check if the same method also works for you.
