    Samsung Galaxy S8, Android 8.0.0

    In Developer Options, switching on Bluetooth HCI snoop log and doing a bt session with a connected bt device generates a logfile: /data/log/bt/btsnoop_hci.log
    However, using
    adb pull /data/log/bt/btsnoop_hci.log
    generates
    adb: error: failed to stat remote object '/data/log/bt/btsnoop_hci.log': Permission denied

    And of course the "normal" retrieval of this file by
    adb pull /sdcard/btsnoop_hci.log
    generates
    adb: error: failed to stat remote object '/sdcard/btsnoop_hci.log': No such file or directory

    I'm wondering how the developer of this was thinking. "Oh, I have root access so I can retrieve the Bluetooth snoop file at any time" ...

    Anyone here have a solution how to retrieve the BT Snoop File on a Samsung Galaxy S8 without rooting your phone?

    Since the file is probably in a system area, no, you need root access.

    Yeah, stupid programmer. If I was her boss, she'd be in the basement sorting paper clips for a month ...
