I have a Linux ARM binary with a lot of shared libraries.

Can I load all of them into one IDA instance so that I can easily navigate between functions? For example: functions that the binary calls and is implemented in one of the shared libraries.

    Which version of IDA you are using?

  • You can simply use File -> Load File -> Additional binary file ..., but I haven't ever done it for your target, so possible there are issues I am unaware of.

I'd suggest running your binary, attach it using IDA debug server, then take memory snapshot.

  • Fair point, but not viable with malware or other potentially malicious code, for example.
