Last Update:


This shell script utility reads an Android adb backup and generates an individual adb backup for each item on apps/ folder. That equals to generating an adb backup for each app.

shared/0 and shared/1 (sdcards) are ignored, so that means that external data and OBB files, although may be backed up, may not be restored. For doing so backup the folder Android of the sdcards.
Creating a backup with -shared flag has know issues (corruption) so is not recommended. Future releases of this script may add the option to automatically detect things from sdcards inside the adb backup file.

This script works on Cygwin also, and in general where star does.

apk-missing.html is generated when apks are missing.

Other software is needed. The bundle is included in Android Backup Extractor, with the full README as well:
