I understand that VNC has been used to enable viewing on an Android display, which requires a network. I would like to be able to use the display (and ideally other Android resources) through a USB connection between the two devices. Assume a network is not available for the exercise.

  1. Has a project already built this capability? OR

  2. Is said capability a matter of configuring settings on the rPi and downloading an App to the Android device?

  3. USB is serial communications: would the Android 'resource' (phone's display) be represented as a 'file'? Said 'file' to be a destination for video traffic?

Examples or tutorial links are appreciated: thank you.

  • it is possible that a USB connection could provide a serial port connection between the two devices ...... you could also use bluetooth
