For some weird reason both my Samsung data sync started developing weird behavior at the same time, the solution was simply to use wifi instead. My device is routed so I just downloaded ADB Konnect and ran the connect command from my development machine:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb connect 192.168.1.2:5555
For none rooted devices there is an alternative but it requires having a working usb cable in order to activate it.
- Connect tablet via USB and make sure debugging is working.
adb tcpip 5555
adb connect 10.0.0.2:5555
(replace with desired address)
- Disconnect USB and proceed with wireless debugging.
adb usbto switch back when done.
