Transferring system files to and fro between Android device and your computer

March 7th, 2014

Once you have an updated a system file ( like a library file ) for being transferred to you Android device, you need to actually transfer it. In this article we will show you how to do it. Notice that the images and regular files can easily be transferred by connecting your device with a USB Cable to your computer.

1. Connect to your Android device using SSH. You will need the authentication file, IP Address and the login name of your android system. We will write a separate article about it.

2. Now run the following command from the SSH

#setprop service.adb.tcp.port 5555;stop adbd;start adbd
#adb connect IP

Where IP is the IP address of your system. You should see the device when you give the command

#adb devices

Now open the command prompt and go to the directory sdk\platform-tools in you android SDK installation directory. You should see the sdk.exe file in this directory. Run sdk.exe

Now if you give the command

#adb devices

You should see your device

Give the following command to remount the directory as a read / write directory.

#adb remount

You can now transfer the file from your computer to the android device using the following command

#adb push local remote

Where local is the path and file name of the file to be transferred and remote is the directory name of the remote android device.
