Configuration (Android Analysis)

To get Cuckoo running Android analysis you should download the Android SDK and extract it in a folder Cuckoo can access. You should also configure avd.conf with the settings of your setup.


The main file for Android environment settings is conf/avd.conf, it contains all the generic configuration used to launch the Android emulator and run the analysis.

The file is largely commented and self-explaining, but some of the options you might want to pay more attention to are:

  • emulator_path: this defines the Android emulator path (it is located inside Android SDK)
  • adb_path: this defines the ADB path (it is located inside Android SDK)
  • avd_path: this defines where AVD images are located
