Bootimage ADB Unsecure Patcher
Android Bootimage ADB Unsecure Patcher is made to ease the development of ROMs.
Its purpose is to modify the ramdisk to set ADB into an unsecure mode,
in order to debug Android ROMs on clean / bringup boots without doing an 'eng' build.
It means adb can be used without any permissions to run logcat or other commands.
The project implements the logic from the MultiROM injection (originally by Tasssadar),
finds the bootimage of your device (boot naming similar to Chainfire's boot detection),
and applies the needed modifications to the ramdisk's default.prop configurations.
The objective of Bootimage ADB Unsecure Patcher is therefore to simply enable unsecure adb
on a regular ROM's bootimage for developers and users who would require it.
Developers no longer need to recompile a bootimage or full ROM with 'eng' pressets,
nor do users need to edit their bootimages with unsecure adb settings if they really need it.
The patcher needs to be flashed again after a ROM / bootimage update.
This is originally based on my bootimagedebuggable function from android_development_shell_tools.
The project also uses my version of libbootimg to support Sony ELF bootimages.
Bootimage Debug Addition Patcher
Another part was added to this project: Bootimage Debug Addition allows developers
to debug unbootable Android builds by providing the following items:
Rebooting to recovery and reading the file contents can help resolving issues rather than guessing.
- Complete logcat service to /data/debug.logcat.txt
- Kernel messages exported to /data/debug.kernel.txt
- Runtime properties to /data/debug.properties.txt
- Detailed tree of / to /data/debug.roottree.txt
The patcher is called "bootimage_debug_addition", while the revert is called "bootimage_debug_removal".
For builds running with enforced sepolicies, you might need to flash Universal Kernel Permissive Patcher too.
