So we all know that you have to connect your phone to your PC with USB cable for ADB-SDK.

Well thanks to adbWireless we don't need a USB cable any more.
This is my favorite root app and the one I install immediately after rooting a device.

Pros:

---Quick access to ADB on the fly
---If your phone is near full battery and not ready for a charge... go wireless. I don't like charging unless I'm under 25%. So it's great I don't have to plug in to use ADB.
---Simple & to the point with many options in the settings to fill your needs

Cons:

---Large files can take long to transfer versus wired connection.
A 1.4gb file takes about 30 minutes for me (i.e. CWM backup).

Play Store link: adbWireless

_______Tips_______
---Make sure USB debugging is enabled before opening app to connect to ADB.
---When transferring files to & from phone, it will look like nothing is happening... Just wait & eventually when the transfer is complete, the "$" sign will appear again. Windows users I think your sign looks like ">".

_____Commands I use to transfer to & from_____
You can copy/paste these commands and set your own paths in place.
I use these to transfer clockworkmod backups.

From phone to PC:
adb pull mnt/sdcard/external_sd/clockworkmod/backup /home/tony/backup

From PC to phone:
adb push /home/tony/backup /mnt/sdcard/external_sd/clockworkmod/backup

Enjoy
