Mhf – Mobile Helper Framework – A Tool That Automates The Process Of Identifying The Framework/Technology Used To Create A Mobile Application

Mobile Helper Framework is a tool that automates the process of identifying the framework/technology used to create a mobile application. Additionally, it assists in finding sensitive information or provides suggestions for working with the identified platform.

How work?

The tool searches for files associated with the technologies used in mobile application development, such as configuration files, resource files, and source code files.

Example

Cordova

Search files:

index.html
cordova.js
cordova_plugins.js

React Native Android & iOS

Search file

Andorid files:

libreactnativejni.so
index.android.bundle

iOS files:

main.jsbundle

Installation

❗A minimum of Java 8 is required to run Apktool.

pip install -r requirements.txt

Usage

python3 mhf.py app.apk|ipa|aab

Examples
python3 mobile_helper_framework.py file.apk

[+] App was written in React Native

Do you want analizy the application (y/n) y

Output directory already exists. Skipping decompilation.

Beauty the react code? (y/n) n

Search any info? (y/n) y

Features

This tool uses Apktool for decompilation of Android applications.

This tool renames the .ipa file of iOS applications to .zip and extracts the contents.

Feature Note Cordova React Native Native JavaScript Flutter Xamarin JavaScript beautifier Use this for the first few occasions to see better results. ✅ ✅ ✅ Identifying multiple sensitive information IPs, Private Keys, API Keys, Emails, URLs ✅ ✅ ✅ ❌ Cryptographic Functions ✅ ✅ ✅ ❌ ❌ Endpoint extractor ✅ ✅ ✅ ❌ ❌ Automatically detects if the code has been beautified. ❌ ❌ ❌ Extracts automatically apk of devices/emulator ❌ ❌ ❌ ❌ ❌ Patching apk ✅ Extract an APK from a bundle file. ✅ ✅ ✅ ✅ ✅ Detect if JS files are encrypted ❌ ❌ Detect if the resources are compressed. ❌ Hermes✅ ❌ ❌ XALZ✅ Detect if the app is split ❌ ❌ ❌ ❌ ❌

What is patching apk: This tool uses Reflutter, a framework that assists with reverse engineering of Flutter apps using a patched version of the Flutter library.

More information: https://github.com/Impact-I/reFlutter

Split APKs is a technique used by Android to reduce the size of an application and allow users to download and use only the necessary parts of the application.

Instead of downloading a complete application in a single APK file, Split APKs divide the application into several smaller APK files, each of which contains only a part of the application such as resources, code libraries, assets, and configuration files.

adb shell pm path com.package
package:/data/app/com.package-NW8ZbgI5VPzvSZ1NgMa4CQ==/base.apk
package:/data/app/com.package-NW8ZbgI5VPzvSZ1NgMa4CQ==/split_config.arm64_v8a.apk
package:/data/app/com.package-NW8ZbgI5VPzvSZ1NgMa4CQ==/split_config.en.apk
package:/data/app/com.package-NW8ZbgI5VPzvSZ1NgMa4CQ==/split_config.xxhdpi.apk

For example, in Flutter if the application is a Split it’s necessary patch split_config.arm64_v8a.apk, this file contains libflutter.so
