- Setup Mac: Download the BBQScreen desktop application from the BBQScreen website: https://screen.bbqdroid.org/ Unless your phone is rooted, once it is connected, you will need to "Start USB Service" and "Connect via USB" for this to work, as well as have debugging enabled on your phone.
- Download SDK Tools from Android developers website. Link: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html#download At the bottom of the page, under SDK tools only, download the installer for Windows.
(File size: Around 135 MB, do not download the large Android Studio files) (SDK Tools are needed to use the ADB tool that lets you communicate with an emulator or Android device.)
- Install SDK Tools.
- The installer will detect if your system has Java kit installed or not. If not, you might be prompted to install it
- Click on Next, check path and install.
- On last screen, check Start SDK Manager. You need to right click and Run as Administrator.
- In Android SDK Manager,
- Check these three packages (all should be checked by default on a fresh install, uncheck everything else): Tools\Android SDK Platform Tools, Extras\Android Support Library and Extras\Google USB Driver.
- If you get an error that it couldn't write to the directory, its because you need to close and re-open SDK Manager as Run as Administrator.
- Accept license and install. The installation should take only a few minutes on a decent internet connection.
- On your Android device, go to Settings -> Developer Options -> Check USB Debugging. USB Debugging is a required feature for android screen projection.
- To enabled developer options if its not in settings, go to about, go to the build, and tap the build number 7 times.
- Connect your device to the computer using a USB cable.
- Check if the device driver is installed.
- Open the Device Manager (click Start, type Device Manager, and press Enter), locate your device, right-click it and select Properties. You may see a yellow exclamation mark next to the device if its driver isn’t installed properly.
- The device manufacturer may provide a downloadable driver package for your device. Or you can use the Google USB driver that we installed in Step 3 (Nexus devices should use this option).
- For some devices, the Google USB driver does not work and you might have to search online for the right driver. For Samsung devices, installation of Samsung Kies automatically installs the correct drivers for your device
E.g. for the Samsung Duos S GT-S7562, you can download Samsung Kies at http://www.samsung.com/ae/support/model/GT-S7562UWAXSG-downloads.
- After successfully installing the driver, the Device Manager should now indicate the device driver is installed. If not, you can try re-starting everything.
- Droid@Screen is a tool that will show the screen of your phone, once all previous steps have been completed (i.e. drivers installed, usb debugging enabled, etc).
- Download latest version of Droid@Screen, file size is around than 1.9 MB. http://droid-at-screen.org/download.html
- Open the downloaded file and set ADB path. On the test sytem, the path looked like this: AppData\Local\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb.exe.
You can search for platform-tools folder using the file explorer (accessed when you hit the "..." button) and use that path e.g. C:\Users\Stella\AppData\Local\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb.exe
- Whenever you want to project the device, start Droid@Screen (using the same downloaded file) and plug in your device. Droid@Screen will automatically start showing the screen.
- Your computer screen can then be projected on a bigger screen using a projector.
