I am using Lineage OS 14.1-20171111_14ß556-UNOFFICIAL-cedric on my Motorola G5 Android 7.1.2 and i am not able to locate the file/data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings‌​.db

i tried ES File Explorer(with root) , adb shell (with root) and also SQLite Editor from the Play Store does not seem to find that file.

  • What shell commands are you using? – Bo Lawson Jan 11 '18 at 22:26
  • is com.android.providers.settings a folder ? also are you sure there is no typo in ...providers... ? try without the s and see if it helps. – esQmo_ Jan 11 '18 at 23:46

  • Why do you need this file? – harpratap Jan 12 '18 at 6:27

Since Marshmallow, all the settings are scattered everywhere, you won't find settings.db

many settings are available under /data/system/users/0/ saved as XMLs. Try looking there.

  • What a downgrade! – JohnyTex Oct 30 '18 at 11:24
