Androsig - Android Library Code Matching for JEB


The purpose of this plugin is to help deobfuscate obfuscated applications. Using our generic collection of signatures for common libraries, library code can be recognized; methods and classes can be renamed; package hierarchies can be rebuilt.

Minimum JEB version: JEB 3.3

Tutorials on how to use:

Remember to download a signatures bundle of common libraries, as instructed in the tutorial linked.

Building from Source

Use the provided build-xxx script to build both plugins (packaged in a single JAR); the version number 'x.y.z' is located in AndroSigCommon. Update the version number in the script file before building.


Android Signature Generator plugin

This plugin is mainly for generating library signatures which are used to match obfuscated applications.

Android Signature Recognizer plugin

Based on library signatures and through recognizer plugin, library code in obfuscated applications can be recognized.

Getting Started


Simply drop plugin into [JEB_FOLDER]/coreplugins folder and restart JEB.

Running Signature Generator plugin

  1. In JEB, click File -> Open to open an android apk.
  2. Select File -> Engines -> Execute and select the generator plugin.
  3. Enter the library name (usually the same as application name) and click OK.
  4. The signature file (.sig) will be generated in [JEB_FOLDER]/coreplugins/android_sigs folder.

Running Signature Recognizer plugin

Please make sure all your signature files are in the [JEB_FOLDER]/coreplugins/android_sigs folder.

  1. In JEB, click File -> Open to open an android apk.
  2. Select File -> Engines -> Execute and select the Recognizer plugin.
  3. Customize the matching parameters if need ba and click OK.
  4. The signature file (.sig) will be generated in [JEB_FOLDER]/coreplugins/android_sigs folder.


After running signature recognizer plugin, two files will be generated in your TEMP folder:

  • androsig-mapping.txt: a mapping file shows the original class, method names mapped to the obfuscated names.
  • androsig-report.txt: provides the comprehensive information about the matching.
