Hey,

so here’s the run down, I want a old android phone to display my pc stats using this app I found, the phone will sit in my case on a charger and stay in case.


Problem:

everytime I turn the pc on or off I would like the phone to turn in and off so the phone doesn’t explode and sit on for weeks on weeks.

 

if I can get the problem above solved I will need a way to open the pc stats automatically when the phone turns on without entering the case to click the app,

 

 

idk if this is possible but this would be a great project and I need some android users help as I am a Apple user myself 😞

 

 

gl everyone in your findings hopefully I can get some answers!

I'm not an Android wizard myself, but I think adb (Android Debug Bridge) is something that might help you achieve what you're looking for.

I would imagine you can you have these commands entered via a script that triggers when your computer boots up and shuts down. 

 

As for turning the phone on, you can try removing the battery and seeing while plugged into the USB port of your computer, if it boots up the moment you turn on the computer and power is running through the USB port.
