SanteDB Brain Bug

The brain bug tool is named after the infamous "Brain Bug" from the movie Starship Troopers. The tool does exactly what that alien did, it extracts logs, files and databases from the dCDR Android Application.

The tool was developed to overcome the fact that extracting Android backups is difficult on Microsoft Windows operating systems. To run the brainbug tool you will need the Android SDK installed on your Windows environment.
