Tool that uses adb to check if apps on a device are built Android App Bundles
aabc: Android App Bundle Checker
aabc is a utility that checks whether Android apps on a device were built using Android App Bundles (AAB) or whether they're monolithic APKs. This script calls ADB to gather this information and can output lists of apps built with AAB.
If you find that the usage instructions below are unclear or inaccurate, please open an issue.
Connecting Android Device(s) with adb
- Enable developer options and USB debugging on your Android device(s).
- Connect Android device(s) to your computer via USB.
adb devicesand note the serial of the target device (the output in the left column).
- A pop-up may appear on your device asking you to allow the connection. Allow it.
Specify the devices you want to check by passing their serials (from step 3 above) to aabc:
# Check device with serial "FOBAR1234" aabc FOOBAR1234 # Check multiple devices by passing multiple serials aabc FOOBAR1234 HELLOWORLD12
By default, aabc will list apps that are built using Android App Bundles. This preference can be
specified explicitly by passing
-a (this does the same as the above example):
aabc -a FOOBAR1234
You can do the opposite and output apps that don't use Android App Bundles (monolithic apps) with
aabc -m FOOBAR1234
To filter out system apps that you might not care about checking, pass
-3 to look at third-party
aabc -3 FOOBAR1234
