How to extract APDB & BPLGU / MDDB files from Mediatek - hovatek - 01-30-2016

The DB file (BPLGU or MDDB) is required for tools like SN writer and Maui Meta to write IMEI, WiFi / Bluetooth address etc to a Mediatek Android device. You'll usually find the DB files in the official firmware. Should you not find the file(s) in the firmware you downloaded, you can easily extract from your device.

Steps to extract BPLGU / MDDB from a Mediatek device


To extract the DB files(s) from a Mediatek Android phone:

  1. Root the phone (you could use Magisk )
  2. Install a root browser like ES Explorer or ROM Toolbox Lite
  3. Navigate to  /system/etc/mddb/
  4. Copy BPLGUInfoCustomAppSrcP****  from /system/etc/mddb/ to your device's storage and then to your PC
