J's Android Device Database

ImjTool is very handy for working with firmware images


The Android Device Database aims to capture shell command output from representative Android devices, so that researchers will be able to get an idea of device and vendor idiosyncrasies even if they don't have the actual device for testing. The idea is to run a few common commands and a few tools of mine, capturing the output. This will take 2-3 minutes if you have a device, and will benefit many others who don't. I will add the firmware images so as to help static analysis.

This is a work in progress. Check Pixel 4 or Fire HD 10 for a sample

Now with rooted images:

Want to contribute?

Get adb shell to a (preferably rooted) device with a chipset not listed here, and run the following commands:

The easiest way to get all this output is by running "script" on your MacOS or Linux host before "adb". this logs everything you do (until you type "exit") into a file called "typescript" - which is what I need. Thank you!

If your device identifies as a known chipset listed here, it probably doesn't make sense to list it here unless the outputs of the above commands greatly differ (e.g. service list) or are from some esoteric brand.

If you can help, feel free to email me - ddb@... And I thank you in advance.
