Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Proxoid (An http proxy for Android)

Description
Proxoid is an open source ProxyServer on Android. It allow users of not rooted phones to use their phone’s internet access from a computer. It is based on a possibility offered by Google’s sdk : it is possible to forward requests from your computer to your phone. In this case, they will be forwarded to Proxoid who will transmit them to Internet and give you the answer. Thetering on Android is wonderful but, it needs to be root on the phone wich is rarely the case. Also, by using a proxy it will be possible to filter request and replies (change headers, add caching, remove adds, …). For now, not so much :
* proxying (of course !)
* user-agent filtering : you can choose to let, remove or modify your browser’s user agent.

Windows problems

Try to follow this Google group thread

Also, if windows doesn’t ask you for any driver, uninstall the currently used with USBDeview : http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html.

Samsung Galaxy

Two conditions are needed to make it work with Samsung Galaxy :

1. Install, prior to the driver, the Samsung PC Suite. Without it, the driver wouldn’t work.
2. The driver need to be taken from v1.5r3 of Google’s sdk. I updated proxy-adb.zip to use this one.

In case you already installed the driver without Samsung PC Suite, unistall it before. For this, you may use USBDeview : http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html
