Somebody knows maybe, where in the mobile phone with Android (Samsung) bluetooth data are stored? I mean where to find names of paired devices, maybe history of connections.
Phone is rooted.
I have spent some time and no luck with finding such data.
Thanx for any information )

(Because you don't state which model - perhaps try here http//www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/mobile-devices/smartphones/android to identify the model your are referring to)

Assuming you are talking about a Samsung Galaxy

* Press Menu

* Tap on Settings
- Wireless and Networks

* Tap on Bluetooth Settings
- Is Bluetooth ON - ie can you Scan devices

——————-

Try procedure to eg transfer a Gallery photo image from Galaxy II using bluetooth,

* Select the 'Home' button

* Select 'Applications'
- 'Gallery'

* Select a gallery image
- select 'Menu' button
- select 'Share' menu
- select option 'Bluetooth'
- should identify list of all available paired devices (assuming the Galaxy has paired before)

—————-

There is a huge amount on the web (just google) where users download bluetooth apps (eg http//www.medieval.it/blueftp-android/menu-id-68.html). Maybe check out apps on the Samsung you are examining?

Off the top of my head (and with all the caveats that implies) I think the file you're after is called "btopp.db". I can't remember for sure, but I suspect that's it's on the "system" partition.

Hope this vague answer helps!!

@ AlexC - this is it )
Thanx a lot, it is the exact name of the database.

@ trewmte
Thanx a lot for this detailed answer. Without mentioned above file it can be the best way to find such earlier paired devices.

I would be wary about turning Bluetooth on to find the pairs as turning bluetooth on performs an automatic scan on most (if not all) Android devices causing unnecessary changes on the device.

AlexC is bang on though. Best to recover the actual .db file.

I would agree with what you say, but that doesn't mean to say you cannot confirm whether bluetooth is already switched ON.

True. I would also advise going into \data\data\com.android.providers.settings\databases\settings.db

Well… Kind of reviving an old post here, but wondering if anyone can clarify.

I am trying to find information for Bluetooth paired devices. I am more interested in audio headsets rather than transfer of data.

I located the btopp.db database for the android device I am working with, but the database is empty (the table structure is there, but no data within the tables when I open the db file).

Now… I am wondering if this is due to how Android stores information… or if I can only get these databases if the device is rooted?.

I obtained a physical extraction using Cellebrite UFED Touch 2 but this was a Smart ADB extraction. The device is not rooted, so I am assuming no sudo means I don't get this data?

Just wondering if someone out here as a better idea of where I should be looking…

Thanks for the help in advance!

I'm after this information also. I have a btopp.db, but it appears empty. Would a deeper extraction (such as UFED Premium) get this database at the root level?

@dani1ada I was not able to check on this myself. But was curious if you ever did try a rooted extraction?
