Remotely access bb screen from pc

Hi

 

I know its not the right forum to ask. Have any one heard of remotely accessing the BB screen from a desktop  and controlling it. If yes.how it can be implemented. I can connect the device to pc using usb and I should be able to get the BB screen on my pc. Any ideas to implement this ??

 

Something similar to this

Re: Remotely access bb screen from pc

There are a couple of options.  javaloader (included with BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse and BlackBerry JDE) is a command line tool that is commonly used to add/remove applications from a BlackBerry Smartphone while developing.

 

You can also use it to capture screenshots:

 

javaloader -u screenshot myFile.bmp

 

This captures the current active screen.

 

Another option is to create an application on the device that captures screenshots and streams them to an application running on a PC over USB or WiFi.
