Androiddump is a extcap tool that provide interfaces to capture from Android device. There
is only two requirements:

1. You must have Android SDK and add it PATH environment variable. PATH should contain
directory with tools like "adb" and "android". Android SDK for various platform are
available on: https://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html#Other

2. You must have permission to Android devices.

Supported interfaces:

1. Logcat Main (binary or text)
2. Logcat System (binary or text)
3. Logcat Events (binary or text)
4. Logcat Radio (binary or text)
5. Logcat Crash (text; Lollipop)
6. Bluetooth Hcidump (<Kitkat)
7. Bluetooth Bluedroid External Parser (Kitkat)
8. Bluetooth BtsnoopNet (Lollipop)

Please note that it will work also for FirefoxOS.

NOTE: If one of device require ADB Authentication you need accept or reject that request.
Otherwise no devices will be available.


Print program arguments.

Print program version.

List available interfaces.

Use specified interfaces.

List DLTs of specified interface.

List configuration options of specified interface.

Start capturing from specified interface save saved it in place specified by --fifo.

--fifo=<path to file or pipe>
Save captured packet to file or send it through pipe.

--adb-server-ip=<IP address>
Use other then default ( ADB daemon's IP address.

--adb-server-tcp-port=<TCP port>
Use other then default (5037) ADB daemon's TCP port.

--logcat-text=<TRUE or FALSE>
If TRUE then use text logcat rather then binary. This option has effect only on Logcat
interfaces. This have no effect from Lollipop where is no binary Logcat available.

Defaults to FALSE.

--bt-server-tcp-port=<TCP port>
Use other then default Bluetooth server TCP port on Android side. On Lollipop
defaults is 8872, earlier 4330.

--bt-forward-socket=<TRUE or FALSE>
If TRUE then socket from Android side is forwarded to host side.

Defaults to FALSE.

--bt-local-ip=<IP address>
Use other then default ( IP address on host side for forwarded socket.

--bt-local-tcp-port=<TCP port>
Specify port to be used on host side for forwarded socket.

androiddump --help

To see program version:

androiddump --version

To see interfaces:

androiddump --extcap-interfaces

Example output:
interface {display=Android Logcat Main}{value=android-logcat-main-MSM7627A}
interface {display=Android Logcat System}{value=android-logcat-system-MSM7627A}
interface {display=Android Logcat Radio}{value=android-logcat-radio-MSM7627A}
interface {display=Android Logcat Events}{value=android-logcat-events-MSM7627A}
interface {display=Android Bluetooth Hcidump}{value=android-bluetooth-hcidump-MSM7627A}

To see interface DLTs:

androiddump --extcap-interface=android-bluetooth-hcidump-MSM7627A --extcap-dlts

Example output:
dlt {number=99}{name=BluetoothH4}{display=Bluetooth HCI UART transport layer plus pseudo-header}

To see interface configuration options:

androiddump --extcap-interface=android-bluetooth-hcidump-MSM7627A --extcap-config

Example output:
arg {number=0}{call=--adb-server-ip}{display=ADB Server IP Address}{type=string}{default=}
arg {number=1}{call=--adb-server-tcp-port}{display=ADB Server TCP Port}{type=integer}{range=0,65535}{default=5037}

To capture:

androiddump --extcap-interface=android-bluetooth-hcidump-MSM7627A --fifo=/tmp/bluetooth.pcapng --capture

NOTE: To stop capturing CTRL+C/kill/terminate application.
