About this app

Before you post questions or bad reviews, see FAQ
https://sisik.eu/bugjaeger_faq
If you want new feature, or something is not working, write directly to my email roman@sisik.eu

Bugjaeger tries to give you the expert tools used by Android developers for better control and deep understanding of your Android device internals.

Multitool that can save you the hassle of carrying a laptop.

If you're an Android power user, developer, geek, or hacker, this app should be in your toolkit.

How to use
1.) Enable developer options and USB debugging on your target device (https://developer.android.com/studio/debug/dev-options)

2.) Connect the device where you've installed this app to the target device via USB OTG cable

3.) Allow app to access USB device and make sure target device authorizes USB debugging

Inspecting device internals, running shell scripts, checking logs, making screenshots, sideloading, and many more tasks that are normally done on your laptop can now be performed directly between 2 mobile devices.

This app works as sort of Android to Android ADB (Android Debug Bridge) - it offers some features similar to ADB (Android Debug Bridge), but instead of running on your development machine, it runs directly on your Android device.

You connect your target device through USB OTG cable or through WiFi and you'll be able to play around with the device.

You can control your Android TV, Wear OS watch, or even Raspberry Pi with Android Things OS and Oculus VR.

Main features
- running shell scripts on target device
- sideload regular/split APKs (e.g. to Oculus Quest VR)
- sideload/flash AOSP images (e.g. Android Preview on Pixel)
- remote interactive shell
- TV remote controller
- mirroring screen + remotely control with touch gesture
- reading, filtering, and exporting device logs (logcat)
- pull APK files
- ADB backups, inspecting and extracting content of backup files
- screenshots
- performing various ADB commands for controlling your device (rebooting, going to bootloader, rotating screen, killing running apps, ...)
- launch, force-stop, disable apps
- uninstalling and installing packages, checking various details about installed apps
- copying apps between phones
- monitoring the processes, showing additional information related to processes, killing processes
- get system properties
- showing various details about Android version(e.g., SDK version, Android ID,..), Linux kernel, cpu, abi, display
- showing battery details (like e.g., temperature, health, technology, voltage,..)
- file management - pushing and pulling files from device, browsing the file system
- search and connect to Android devices on your network that configured adbd to listen on port 5555
- reading bootloader variables & info via fastboot protocol (e.g. dump some hw info, security state, or if the device was tampered)
- exec fastboot commands
- show extensive system info

For some tricks and examples of what you can do, see

Requirements

The app does not bypass Android's security mechanisms or anything similar!
This means you won't be able to do some privileged tasks on non-rooted devices.

Amazing app! I used it on my tivo stream to disable bloatware. VERY effective for that, but make SURE you know what all the apps do! I had to reset my tivo after disabling some stuff I should not have! (oops). Deleting stuff didn't seem to work (on tivo). But disabling them does the trick! I've used it to sideload a few apps, too. Awesome! It's difficult to learn, at first. I went to developer's site to learn the interface. But, once you know how it works, it is amazing!

This is exactly what I needed. Even works great on the Fire Stick. Thank you. 👍 Edit: Features are getting more and more limited in order to force purchasing full version. Not a good look. 𝗘𝗱𝗶𝘁: Maybe don't make the app pop up a prompt every time something is plugged in. Especially when the app isn't even running.

Thanks for the review. I always add new features also to the free version. Im not displaying any pop-ups, only refreshing the device list. Do you mean the system popup for handling USB devices? I have no control over that. It should not appear if you make Bugjaeger default for handling a USB device. You can use roman@sisik.eu for reporting bugs
