I'm trying to capture BLE HCI events for an Android device. I've managed to capture and acquire these events using Android's adb bugreport tool. The resulting btsnooz_hci.log command, when opened in Wireshark, always result sin the file is "Damaged or Corrupt" error. Any way to resolve this? Thank you

If I'm understanding things correctly, that conversation is referring to needing a rooted device to capture these logs live. I'm capturing them on the device itself and then trying to open the result log file in Wireshark after the fact. I have access to the file, but Wireshark is refusing to open it.

Managed to make it work by: 1. Enabling Bluetooth HCI snooping in the developer options 2. Running adb shell 3. Live capturing the logs in Wireshark with interface: Android Bluetooth Btsnoop Net ... ...: android-bluetooth-btsnoop-net-...
