The challenge : We’ve extracted the internal disk from the Android device of the suspect. Can you find the pattern to unlock the device? Please submit the correct pattern here.

Extract gesture.key

Method 1 : mount the given image and search for gesture.key , which is usually on data/system/

$ mkdir andr
$ sudo mount -o loop android.4.4.x86.img andr
$ find andr/ -name gesture.key

Method 2: extract using fls :

first we need to search for parameter of the file which we want to extract!

$fls android.4.4.x86.img -r | grep -i gesture.key
+ r/r 8495:    gesture.key

Now we know the address of gesture.key , extract it using icat

$icat android.4.4.x86.img 8495 > gesture.key

And now we get the file.

I’I crack the gesture Using P-Decode we can easily get the pattern of the phone

$python P-Decode-master/P-Decode.py -f gesture.key

And we get the pattern in image. Finally We submit at the given website and get the flag
