Android extraction and analysis framework with an integrated Autopsy Module. Dump easily user data from a device and generate powerful reports for Autopsy or external applications.

  • Extract user application data from an Android device with ADB (root and ADB required).
  • Dump user data from an android image or mounted path.
  • Easily build modules for a specific Android application.
  • Generate clean and readable JSON reports.
  • Complete integrated Autopsy compatibility (datasource processor module, ingest module, report module, geolocation, communication and timeline support).
  • Export HTML report based on the current case.
