* Root the phone
* Install a root browser like ES Explorer or ROM Toolbox Lite
* Navigate to  /system/etc/mddb/
* Copy BPLGUInfoCustomAppSrcP**** from /system/etc/mddb/ to your device's storage and then to your PC

And the APDB file? Where i find it?
Thanks

1. What file(s) do you have?
2. What is your phone's chipset?

You must have the DB files either extracted from your phone or from the full firmware which i guess you don't.
BTW, what's your device exact chipset?

that only works with Maui Meta, SN writer requires more db files.
Besides, you'll need root to get access to that file
