I would you like write a simple program that open a binary file and read every byte. I try to do this using an Android device with this syscalls (https://android.googlesource.com/platform/bionic/+/cd58770/libc/SYSCALLS.TXT) with follow code
ldr r0, =binaryfile
mov r1, #2
mov r7, #5
mov r7,#3 @read syscall
Handle: .skip 4
Array: .skip 80
binaryfile: .asciz "file.bin"
Your code is not completely correct, you must add
ldr r0,=Handle out of the loop (as suggest by Peter) and you have also to review the parameters of the open syscall(http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/open.2.html). This is a working example:
... @ Open an input file for reading ldr r0,=binaryfile @ set Name for input file mov r1,#0 ldr r2,=0666 @ permissions mov r7,#5 swi 0 @ Save the file handle in memory: ldr r1,=Handle @ load input file handle str r0,[r1] @ save the file handle loop: ldr r0,=Handle @ load input file handle ldr r0,[r0] ldr r1,=readBuffer mov r2,#16 mov r7, #3 swi 0 @ read the integer into R0 ...
