CHECK SUPPORT SECTION FOR MANUAL PAIRING TUTORIAL
How does it work?
LADB bundles an ADB server within the app libraries. Normally, this server cannot connect to the local device because it requires an active USB connection. However, Android's Wireless ADB Debugging feature allows the server and the client to speak to each other locally.
Use split-screen more or a pop-out window with LADB and Settings at the same time. This is because Android will invalidate the pairing information if the dialog gets dismissed. Add a Wireless Debugging connection, and copy the pairing code and port into LADB. Keep both windows open until the Settings dialog dismisses itself.
LADB is sadly incompatible with Shizuku at the current moment. That means that if you have Shiuzuku installed, LADB will usually fail to connect properly. You must uninstall it and reboot to use LADB.
Most errors can be fixed by clearing the app data for LADB, removing all Wireless Debugging connections from Settings, and rebooting.
While this project is GPLv3 licensed, I would like to add a parameter: please do not publish unofficial (user) LADB builds to the Google Play Store.
Sometimes, LADB's Assisted Pairing mode can be finicky with newer versions of Android. This is because the device does not recognize that there is an available device to connect to. Sometimes, a simple app restart fixes the issue.
This tutorial demonstrates how you can skip the Assisted Pairing mode and reliably pair the device yourself.

LADB does not send any device data outside of the app. Your data is not collected or processed.
