I have a marshmallow device, it has custom ROM, and is obviously rooted.

I am looking for a way to access the app data, cache of other apps. As I am rooted, I guess this is possible.

I tried searching and found that Titanium Backup can access databases and cache files.

I am only able to save databases but not all the cache files.

So, is there any app to get all the cache files saved?

    Take a look at my answer here on where an app stores its data. Cache is pointed out as well. And note that "is there an app for X" questions are off-topic here :)

  • Cache has its own directory, well that's good.

    Though I'm not entirely sure what time they use "their own" cache dir, and what times the "global one" (/cache). // Btw, as per your answer: Is it acceptable to you to close this question as duplicate to the one I've pointed to? Your answer makes it look like that's what you were after.

  • Your answer is much more vast, and since I require only cache. android.stackexchange.com/questions/46926/…

Most apps store their cache data, files in the /data/data/ directory.

Starting from root directory "/".
