Android is a software designed primarily for mobile devices. Like other embedded systems, various faults also occur in Android due to resource restrictions and frequent external input by the user. In this paper, we propose a method of hooking into the Process Control Block (PCB) to collect data on memory execution and detect memory leakage. Our method does not require any further change of the target software code or hardware. In addition, it maintains the run-time performance while minimizing system overhead. Overall results of the case study show that mis method is very effective in both preventing performance degradation and detecting memory leakage.
