While reading random topics on forum o found this one
Code:
http://forum.cheatengine.org/viewtopic.php?t=540553&sid=542f48ff936bbcf6577b8b88a6aeb522

The part that especially cought my attention was
Quote:
there is only a server for linux and android.

Does that mean i can use cheat engine to hack games on android? If yes how can i do that?
In other topic i found
Quote:
(there is already a ce network interface implementation for android)

which is kinda confirmation that I can use it but there is no topic nor help nor nothing about how to do it.

make sure your android device has ROOT. If not, root it, or buy one that has the ability to get root.

download the beta of ce 6.2 (sign up with the beta tester usergroup)

extract the ceserver-linux_arm_android to your android device and execute it using the sdk's ADB tool, or using a local terminal app running as root
you might have to make it executable so a "chmod 777 ceserver-linux_arm_android" from the proper dir might be needed before you can execute it (./ceserver-linux_arm_android )

autodiscoverport: 3296 (only needed if you do not know the ip of your device, and only works if your device is not in sleepmode)
used port: 52736 (works even in sleep)

Then run the ce version in this archive, go to the processlist and click the network button. Connect to your android device and target the process you want to cheat on
Now you can scan and edit memory (no debugging or other fancy stuff)

Can't seem to use "chmod 777 ceserver-linux_arm_android" on the terminal emulator. Says "operation not permitted" I am rooted with s-off on cm7.0.3.

Edit1: Preceded chmod with su command now it doesnt say anything after chmod 777 ceserver-linux_arm_android but when i try to open it, I get "permission denied"

start ceserver with su as well
Also, make sure the chmod you used is the actual chmod and not a fake one pointing to a program that does nothing (my rooted asus transformer does this)

It might also be that it may not be on an sdcard. Move it to the /data/ folder if possible (writable)

I downloaded an app named chmod (because the terminal emulator couldn't find chmod on my phone) and set it to 777 but cheatengine isn't detecting my phone as a server.

So i think that set the file permisions to 777 which was the point of the chmod, right? You didn't explain this at all.

Now how do I execute ceserver? It's not an executable or an adb, it doesn't have a filetype so how am I supposed to execute it?

I ran adb.exe in the sdk but all it does is bring up a command prompt flashes a bunch of work way too fast to read and then closes. Is it supposed to do something else?

ceserver-linux_arm_android is an executable (linux doesn't use file extensions for that)
go to the folder it is installed and type ./ceserver-linux_arm_android
or su ./ceserver-linux_arm_android if you're currently not using a root shell (or sudo)

if it has been set to executable with chmod, it will run and show some details

If your device does not show up, then give the ip manually

and give the /shell parameter to adb

Why do I get this output? I'm sorry to bump, but I really want to get CE on android...
C:\Users\booing\Desktop\ANDROID\Magic>adb shell
# cd /mnt/sdcard
cd /mnt/sdcard
# chmod 777 ceserver-linux_arm_android
chmod 777 ceserver-linux_arm_android
# ./ceserver-linux_arm_android
./ceserver-linux_arm_android
./ceserver-linux_arm_android: permission denied
Why do I get the above error?

What kind of device is this? A transformer

I think your chmod is not correct, see if you can findit somewhere. Perhaps in /root or /sbin

Alternatively, it could be your device does not allow execution from the sdcard. Copy it to /data and make it executable there

Tip, use "ls -l" to see if the x flags are set

It's not in /root or /sbin. I tried looking in /system/bin, but nothing there either, so I went back to using the default /system/xbin/chmod.
Apparently, LS670ZVH with CM7 can not set executable files on the sdcard... thanks!

Im was playing a little with the new CE 6.2 and my Galaxy Nexus, but ceserver_linux_arm_android dont work here: "not executable: magic 7F45"

Some cross compiler problem?

it's compiled for arm 7 processors. Not sure what the Galaxy nexus uses
Also, perhaps it's just because the binary isn't marked as executable?

Anyhow, the server sourcecode is in the svn, see if you can get it to compile

Thank for your time Dark Byte.

Indeed, Galaxy Nexus its a 2-core ARM Cortex A9 (ARMv7+Neon+VFP), so in theory should work fine them.


I have checked the file:

ceserver-linux_arm_android: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=0x3e1fffdaa0a0db6f00b5a55784dbd76ab6fb80d1, not stripped


Binary seems to have been compiled for x86-64 instead, and not for ARMv7.

If I have time, I will try compile the source code for the correct platform.

Thank

Doh, thanks for pointing it out. It's the installer's fault (the destination filename for x86_64 is ceserver-linux_arm_android, copy/paste error)

download http://cheatengine.org/download/CheatEngine62NoSetup.rar and copy the files from that archive over the one you have now (or just extract the android binary)

I'll be updating the installers in the meantime
