KIK ( (20000481)) Extraction - Android  

New Member

Hi All,

I am trying to complete an extraction of the KIK database ( (20000481)) on Android 5.0.

On previous versions I have found this in the /data/data/ or similar.

On the latest release I cannot seem to find any link to the kikdatabase.

adb backup (have tried -all)

I then have a java script to unpack the backup into a tar

java -jar abe.jar unpack backup.ab datadump.tar

Lastly I would extract these files and locate / run with DB.Browser

I have tried on KIK ( which will find the folder complete with the databases.

Has anyone had any experience with this or suggestions on what could be tried. I was considering rooting and performing a physical extraction.

Found the solution, the new manifest of KIK has androidallowBackup set to false. Changing this to true will resolve the backup issue.
