    Hi Alex

    I also saw you on Stackoverflow. I am looking for a way to connected an Android phone (acting as a slave), to an embedded device (not a PC), acting as host. Can you provide any suggestions?

    Yours is a very common question, but I’m afraid I do not know how to solve that problem (which does not mean in anyway that it cannot be solved, my knowledge of Android is quite limited). My solution takes advantage of adb and so, requires a computer to be running that service.

    Last I checked up on this (which was quite a long time ago), there wasn’t a clear and easy solution for connecting Android to embedded devices, but I was under the impression that some of the newer Android versions will fix this.

    Not sure if it’s any help at all, but these are my two posts on connecting by USB to a PC.

    If you do find an answer, if you could let me know as well, I would greatly appreciate it. It would be nice to finally be able to answer this :)

    I actually just read this today:

    It seems to suggest that there could be a solution for your problem over Bluetooth with the new version.
