Just discovered ShareKM form the play store... excellent app, lets you control the phone keyboard and pointer using your pc. Stick your phone next to your monitor, slide the mouse over and you`re on your phone. I`m typing this on my pc keyboard using the forum app at the moment! So you look like you`re working while you`re on your phone.

I'm saving up for a sofa so I can sit in the other room and tweak my phone without my wife nagging... thanks!

Ok, I tried this app. It's strange to see the mouse cursor on the phone and use mouse and keyboard on the phone. It's pretty cool.

You have to install app on phone and PC and on PC start a server. Then, on phone choose the connection method (Wi-Fi, USB or Bluetooth) and you're done. Very easy to use.

You just slide the cursor on pc to one side of the screen (by default left but you can customize it to right, top or bottom) and the cursor just goes to phone screen,

-Left-mouse-button is like you touch the screen.
-Right-mouse-button is Back button on phone.
-Middle-mouse-button (or pressing the Wheel) is the Menu button. Can't seem to find any button to work like Home but it's ok.
-And you can use the Wheel for scrolling but it works a little strange and it's not very accurate.

You can customise the keys and clicks using the seup on the PC. By default, you can use the Home key for home, or F1, and use Ctrl+Win to switch to and from your phone if you want to as well as sliding off one edge of the monitor. I`m really liking it.

Actually the key setup is on the phone. All you have to do is install the PC app and run it.

Do you need admin rights to install though? As most computers are locked down at work and schools etc :(

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

:excl:A WARNING TO ALL G300 OWNERS! Please Read! (The Flash Memory Problem!) :excl:

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

Spoiler

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Spoiler

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

(If not, Press it anyway!)

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)

I use MyPhoneExplorer (http://www.fjsoft.at) on my PC with its client (https://play.google....explorer.client) running on my Phone - can connect to phone via USB/BT/WiFi

I can make calls/send txts/manage contacts/set reminders/ via the desktop app without ever having use the phone interface - but you can also control the phone with the mouse/keyboard for other functions.

I've used it for years - originally with my SonyEricsson W510, then my Zte Blade & now my g300

I use it daily in work with my phone connected via usb and i've never had anyone question it - although i do have full admin rights on my work machine(firmware development), so I can install anything i want/need
