This is my first post so apologies if this a stupid question! I have had a quick google but came up with no solution.

I've just created my first avds but cant find where the user data images are stored (my os is ubuntu 14.04).

I would be very grateful if someone can let me where they are. And even more grateful if they could tell me how to mount them.

Thanks for any replies.

  • you create them by standard Android SDK Manager, console, genymotion, Andorid Studio. Please more details – piotrek1543 Dec 27 '15 at 23:24
  • Check %userdir%\.android\avd\ on Windows, and /usr/.android/avd/ on *nix. – Tamoghna Chowdhury Dec 28 '15 at 6:10
  • For you, try the second one. Also, the userdata images should be under the specific folders referenced by the AVD's .ini/.cfg file under its directory where I mentioned. Mounting them requires a loop device mount. Check online. – Tamoghna Chowdhury Dec 28 '15 at 6:12

To find directory with AVD emulators:

Follow these steps:

  1. Open your home directory
  2. Press Ctrl+H to unhide hidden folders and files.
  3. Choose folder .android

Your AVDs should be in avd folder inside .android folder

To mount any AVD emulator

From: Is there a way to mount Android .img to access the AVD (Android Virtual Device) contents?

You can just mount the device in Linux:

sudo mount -o loop ~/.android/avd/<myvirt>/sdcard.img <destdir>

Hope it help
