Wifi/Android Mouse Keyboard
#1
Do any of you guys know of a good Mouse/Keyboard android app that has a server component that works on ARM?

I am traveling a lot for Christmas, and some of the family locations have horrible internet.  I turned my TinkerBoard into a Kodi/EmbyServer pre-loaded with lots of movies and shows.  However I want an android based remote control/keyboard/mouse.

I have a couple apps that I use, but they dont seem to be compiled for ARM. 

Any suggestions?

Do you mean to control Tinker Board by a smartphone?
Kodi has one. But not only that, you may look at Google play store
To use with other programs, this may fit.

Thanks for the reply! I have tinkered (haha...) around with several of these apps with only a couple successfully working. One of which is java based, but it requires to be attached to an active X session. This is a bit difficult as while i am traveling i dont want to have to bring a keyboard and mouse.

However I can perhaps try auto logging and running the correct programs. Or possibly see if i can setup VNC to use the same session as the local system is using.

I will also look into the suggestion you posted as well!

If the main purpose is to control the tinker board remotely, you might experiment by simply use the SSH terminal. Definitely no GUI and no Mouse.
Whether you want to go for VNC, you'll be logged into a new session, which is different from the one is displayed directly by the TB.

I don't know whether exists a chance to open the VNC session on the same display. My search by VNC on same display:0, leading some other discussions

So, it is supposed you can get to access you TB even without HIDs
