Re: [londroid] Taking Android to the limit

Underneath Android is Linux as you mentioned so it will be a matter of porting (compiling with the NDK  - which is just a wrapper atop the GCC ARM compiler) libraries e.g tcpdump used by Wireshark [http://www.tcpdump.org/] and others.

And as already mentioned - you need to be root to analyse TCP packets.

My two cents - if you are designing an app that relies on being root, and will be used by 3rd parties other than yourself - then beware that nasty things can happen! You can almost always and should design in userland.

Thank you for the quick reply,
This is a BTB app, not meant for the app store necessarily, and for professional use only. 
Linux introduces a recently new way to achieve this without root, but if I need root then so be it. This app still holds value.

I'd love to talk with you re. what you wrote. My email is below.

Thank you,
Dor

Hi Dor,

I work for a company where we've built the Android stack in the past and written OEM apps integrated into the phone.

The security model will strictly, strictly prohibit this, and for good reason. You can only imagine the malware that may result if this were possible.

The only way would be to assume that the user 'roots' the phone and get su access. Therefore this cannot be a marketplace app.

Hello,
I have a startup which is part consulting and recently focused on app building.
I could use some help understanding a concept: Behind Android OS is a Linux OS (Dalvik VM runs it). 

Can you think of a way to get an app to intercept and sample TCP packets from all other apps? either via the APIs or via the Dalvik or any other creative way ...

Thank you !
Dor
