Usage

$ demo on|off [hhmm]

Enable or disable the demo mode on a connected Android device or emulator. You can also pass in a custom value for the system clock in the HHMM format (only used when you use the on command).

⚠️ This script only works on *nix systems and has only been tested on macOS with Bash (but should be portable).

This script assumes you have adb on your path. If you don't, you can specify the path to adb by setting the $ADB environment variable. If you have multiple devices connected, this script will not work, but you can set $ANDROID_SERIAL to the target device's serial number (as displayed by adb devices).

Release notes

Version 2.1 (4 Feb 2019)

  • Add back missing licence header

Version 2.0 (3 Feb 2019)

  • Bring back support for hhmm parameter
    • By default, the script uses the device OS version as clock time (e.g., Android 8.1 -> 08:10)
    • If you specify a hhmm parameter, it will be used instead (without validation!)
    • If the script fails at determining the device OS version, it will use 10:10 as clock time
  • Improve script output and provide debugging log (requires modifying the script to enable)
  • Verify that adb command is available

Version 1.2 (12 Jan 2018)

  • Remove the adb root user request — it was not needed

Version 1.1 (12 Jan 2018)

  • Force a clock time (08:00) working around the lack of a default
    (this ignores the hhmm parameter you may have passed in)

Version 1.0 (29 Jun 2016)
