Extract types, methods, properties and fields from Unity IL2CPP binaries.

  • Supports ELF (Android .so), PE (Windows .exe), Mach-O (Apple iOS/Mac) and Universal Binary (Fat Mach-O) file formats
  • Supports ARMv7, ARMv7 Thumb T1 and x86 architectures regardless of file format
  • Supports metadata versions 21, 22, 23 and 24
  • No manual reverse-engineering required; all data is calculated automatically
  • Syntax support for enumerations, events and delegates
  • Il2CppInspector re-usable class library for low-level access to IL2CPP binaries and metadata
  • Il2CppReflector re-usable class library for high-level .NET Reflection-style access to IL2CPP types and data as a tree model

Class library targets .NET Standard 1.5. Application targets .NET Core 2.0. Built with Visual Studio 2017.

Build instructions

git clone --recursive https://github.com/djkaty/Il2CppInspector
cd Il2CppInspector
dotnet restore -r win7-x86
dotnet publish -c Release -r win7-x86

This will build Il2CppInspector for Windows 7 and later. For MacOS and Linux, replace win7-x86 with a RID from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/articles/core/rid-catalog

The output binary is placed in Il2CppInspector/Il2CppDumper/bin/Release/netstandard1.6/win7-x86/publish.


Il2CppDumper [<binary-file> [<metadata-file> [<output-file>]]]

Defaults if not specified:

  • binary-file - searches for libil2cpp.so and GameAssembly.dll
  • metadata-file - global-metadata.dat
  • output-file - types.cs

File format and architecture are automatically detected.

For Apple Universal Binaries, multiple output files will be generated, with each filename suffixed by the index of the image in the Universal Binary. Unsupported images will be skipped.

64-bit binaries

Il2CppInspector does not currently support 64-bit IL2CPP binaries. 64-bit Mach-O files will be parsed without crashing but there is currently no support for 64-bit CPU architectures so automatic inspection will fail.


If you have files that don't work or are in an unsupported format, please open a new issue on GitHub and attach a sample with details on the file format, and I'll try to add support.
