Using the phone as USB keyboard?

Recommended Posts

Something that come to my mind today as I had to some deep troubleshooting on a Windows tablet (real fun) and needed to pull out a keyboard for that.


It would be neat to be able to just use the one you're already carrying in your pocket for stuff like this. Now this is a software matter, of course. However, the solutions I managed to find require root (not an issue) and a patched kernel (could be one).

I'm not familiar how troublesome or feasible patching the kernel as an enduser would be, so I think it would be nice to at least have the required functionality enabled in there, even if there's no frontend app shipping for it.
