While lib files on android can be analysed statically very easily but dynamic lib debugging is also another option to get to know what is happening during runtime. When static analysis may take up alot of time dynamic analysis is always a better option! So how to debug libs? lib files are not independent they need a running process to be debugged. Let's Start: Perquisites: IDA PRO ADB Rooted Device USB cable Note: Enable usb debugging And don't select Filetransfer mode select PTP mode otherwise device won't be listed by ADB Google if you don't Know how to Connect to PC using ADB Now Load lib in IDA PRO first which is to be analysed. Now connect your device to PC over ADB Go to IDA PRO installation directory and from folder dbgsrv copy file android_server to adb folder And execute following commands: adb devices [To make sure device is connected ] adb push android_server /local/data/tmp adb shell su cd /data/local/tmp ll [To Get list of files incurrent directory] chmod 755 android_server ./android_server Minimizethe windows where android_server is running and open a new command prompt window and run following command: adb forward tcp:23946 tcp:23946 select the "Remote ARM Linux/Android debugger", go into "ProcessOptions" in the debugger menu, and set the hostname to localhost.And port : 23946 Now Run the apk on your device from which this lib was extracted! And In IDA go to: Debugger menu Choose attach to process and from list of processes select the process of your apk. Thnx Any correction and suggetion would be welcomed!
