I need to make reverse engineering of one android app. In this app I found class with name Im2MessageNative, this class contains a lot of native methods. For example:

static native long createMessageWrite(int i);

I tried to find an implementation of the method using the Ida Pro. To do this, I opened a tab with strings, then search for phrase "createMessageWrite", next I opened memory address and found this:

.rodata:00B29B29 aCreatemessagew DCB "createMessageWrite",0
.rodata:00B29B29                                         ; DATA XREF: 
.rodata:00B29B29                                         ; .data:00DDC4D8↓o

I was looking for a "aCreatemessagew", but could not find any function.

How to find the implementation of this native method?

  • Isn't that inside a symbol table address? Aug 23 '19 at 7:08
  • symbol table address, what do you mean? Is it a window? Aug 23 '19 at 9:41
  • I know how native code works in Android/Java, but I can't find any function, which contains Java_com_..._createMessageWrite Aug 23 '19 at 9:44
