Accessing the Settings on a Nexus Q

If you enable USB debug mode on the Q, then use adb shell you can start the settings app using the command;

am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.android.settings/.Settings

Once you have done this you can “configure” it using;

input keyevent xxxx

where xxxx is one of the key events from http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/KeyEvent.html (e.g. input keyevent 20 is the same as pressing down on the dpad).

It’s a bit time consuming, but it should be enough to get the Q working with a mouse 😉
