Binder Explorer

Home Software Binder Explorer

Binder Explorer is a web-based tool for observing relationships between Android applications and Android system services. Android system services are core elements of the Android operating system and it is important for platform developers to know and understand how they are being used by applications on their operating system even if they lack access to the source of those applications.

Binder Explorer interprets and makes available debug information that is usually used by Android kernel developers only. This is the first tool to render this data into a coherent diagram.

Because of security restrictions on kernel debug information, Binder Explorer needs to be manually started from the Android shell.
