adb shell dumpstate

The adb shell dumpstate command is used to generate a report of the current state of the Android system. This command provides a snapshot of various system information and diagnostics. The output is quite extensive and includes details such as system properties, logcat logs, network information, battery stats, and more.

Connect your Android device to your computer via USB.

Open a command prompt or terminal on your computer.

Navigate to the directory where the ADB executable is located. This is often in the “platform-tools” directory within the Android SDK installation.

$ cd path/to/android-sdk/platform-tools

Run the following command:

$ adb shell dumpstate

The command may take some time to execute, and the output will be quite extensive. It’s often used for debugging and obtaining information about the system state for analysis.

If you want to save the output to a file, you can redirect the output to a file:

$ adb shell dumpstate > dumpstate.txt

This command will save the dumpstate information into a file named “dumpstate.txt” in the current directory.

Keep in mind that the dumpstate command might require elevated privileges on some devices, and it may not be available on all devices or Android versions. If you encounter issues, check the documentation for your specific device or Android version.
