There were AndroShark, tool for capturing traffic on Android. But there were no newer releases and it seems that original developer dropped project. I liked this tool and used it a lot. But it was set to expire... So there was no simple capture tools available... is home of AndroShark.

So I made Shark for Root, alternative for AndroShark. Some people asked for possibility to see packets on phone, and for that purpose SharkReader has created (first, "quick and dirty" release).

Shark for Root

With tcpdump

SharkReader - unstable...
(note - run Shark Updater to get traffic analysator)

If you press stop, it doesn't truly stop. tcpdump seems like it is still going in the background. The file will continue getting larger and larger even though it has been told to stop capturing.

Running CyanogenMod 6 RC1.

Could someone tell about using different parameters or point me to some website where i could study these?(now i got the defaults)

And when i open Shark reader i see many "RAW Packet" but i cant get any information from them, just "Packet #number".
.pcap files are fine when i open them with Wireshark.

At the bottom i see this: -NULL , what else i can use here and how it effects?

Interesting app, keep up the good work!
