If you are interested in testing or contributing (we are looking for a few good Java developers), please contact me off list. Thank you...we hope that by released this as OSS, it is a service to the forensics community.

Andrew,

I look forward to having a play with this later!

Are you hoping for users to send feedback? Do you have a set of information you would want to know for each test such as software version on the handset and if the device was rooted or not?

Regards

Doug,

Great. Yes, testing to make sure the app executes, stores the data and then how well it is stored would be very helpful. Know the model and Android version will allow us to test/recreate any issues. We have a lot of work to do (Unicode support, for example) but wanted to get this initial app posted. Thanks.

Andrew,

I assume this needs to be installed via the ADB?
Any particular settings that you recommend being on (Other than the typical 'Allow Unknown Sources' and 'USB debugging'

Thank you

Correct, I install via adb (I will try hitting the .apk from the Internet directly). Try installing without "Allow Unknown Sources" first...I do not have that set on my Droid or a G1 and it works just fine. We will sign the .apk if needed to get around that (eventually).

Is there anyway to install the application without going through the ADB at all?

Obviously we do not want to download any file manager applications in a real investigation. It is one thing that I feel is lacking from 'droids, the ability to manage files is pretty handy!
