[Payload] Enable Android USB Debugging

Recommended Posts

This payload enables Developer Options and USB Debugging on Android. It has been tested with a Galaxy Nexus running 4.2.1.

I've updated it since 4.2 made changes so that Developer Options are no longer listed in System Settings. To enable them you must choose About Phone then tap 3 times on Build Number. Then Developer Options will be available in the usual spot. This payload assumes that Developer Options have not been enabled and does the Build Number taps. If Developer Options have already been enabled it does not affect the script - it simply displays "No need, you are already a developer"

You'll likely need an OTG adapter to execute this payload on an Android phone with the USB Rubber Ducky (included with orders since Oct. 2012, now part of the Deluxe Pack)

Is there any way to scroll all the way to the bottom and then go up a set amount using ADB?

EDIT: If it helps anyone...

adb shell input keyevent 123

is the key event for the END key (on keyboard). In my experiences last night, I had to hit it twice and it went directly to -About Phone. Much easier to scroll up two then down, what I believe is 8 options on 4.2.1 with Developer Mode unlocked :)

I assume this only works if the phone is unlocked?

This is awesome, I'm working with software that will manage a large bank of both android and ios devices and in the case of android at times a device hangs (while in usb debug mode)

I needed a way to disable usb debug mode and re-enable, I can issue a command through adb to disable usb debugging, but once disabled I no longer have control via adb. I had never thought of emulating hid. What a great way to re-enable usb debugging.

I'm also brewing some nifty hacks in my head for the android, I have an apk that will unlock a phone and disable passwords. Once I get some ways to deploy payloads to the phone I'm going to try and emulate adb via a usb device like the ducky. Things will be interesting. *Note my phone pwning ideas in no way reflect the work I'm doing to manage large banks of connected devices.

Daren, do you know of any devices like the ducky that would let me not only become an hid, but also change what it's recognized as to the host machine? so I can say emulate an actual phone, or a webcam? I'd ultimately like some scenario where my usb device acts like a computer running adb, and can send the raw commands issued by adb for commands like reboot, install apk, run intent, etc...

There is an OTG type adapter for the iPhone but all of them I've tested haven't worked. If someone finds one that does please let me know.

From what I understand the iPhone will accept a USB keyboard, but it has to be an apple keyboard. Simply a matter of cloning the VID/HID from the keyboard dock. No biggie.

I am using a Samsung Galaxy S4 w/ Android Version 4.2.2. For whatever reason, CTRL p would not work on my device. I wrote another script that does it a bit different. If anyone else has this issue, I hope this helps.

For any Moto X 2nd Gen 4.4.4 scripter's here is my payload for enabling ADB. Note: on my phone it appears USB DEBUG is enabled as soon as ADB is enabled. This may not be the same for everyone. Also, I am a bit strong on the delay's for some specific reasons I won't get into. You can definitely reduce them if you want as the hardware is very much capable.
