I am pretty much new to the packet sniffing. I found some application for the same Shark for root. I have rooted my phone for the application and I tried logging the packets being transferred from my mobile using the start button available in the application. But all in vain I was not able to log even a single packet, and All the time I open the .pcap file with the sharkreader It gives error as Empty file opened.

I am using Android Gingerbread on my mobile.

Also while stopping the logs, it gives some error executing some Shell commands like killall.

Thanks in Advance.

  • Nope, I tried for sometime but never worked so stopped using this Apr 30 '15 at 4:01
  • Yea, I eventually just opened the file on my laptop with WireShark. Apr 30 '15 at 4:02

See if you still have available memory in your storage. Shark for Root won't record any packets if your device has insufficient memory.
