I'm using idapro for arm native debugging (with androidseever) . I'd like to check when a memory data is read by code (what instruction and where). Hardware bp is not possible. How can i do? How to use watch option? With gbd? Thanksl
What you are describing is called watchpoints/memory breakpoints.
Sadly, IDA doesn't let you place memory breakpoints.
Fortunately, you can implement those by changing the page protection and catching the page protection violation exception as described here and here.
