I followed Nikolay Elenkov's method of unpacking backup.ab.

Is it possible to get data/data/com.android.browser/databases/webview.db from backup.ab?

  • When I saw the title on the front page, I was going to suggest you read Nikolay's blog on the subject. His stuff is always good. He's got a book coming out too: Android Security Internals. – jww Sep 24 '14 at 18:47

I found a bypass to this problem. Just do a full adb backup including all app data, apk and system data. Then root the phone and restore everything from backup. Then I would be able to access data/data/com.android.browser/databases/webview.db using Root Explorer on my phone.
