Is there a way to get the launchable activity for a package from using adb? For an unroot phone (i.e. without having the pull the apk from /data/app directory and inspect with appt).
I tried dumpsys, but it does not include information on default launchable activity.
You don't need root to pull the apk files from
/data/app. Sure, you might not have permissions to list the contents of that directory, but you can find the file locations of APKs with:
adb shell pm list packages -f
Then you can use
adb pull <APK path from previous command>
aapt to get the information you want:
aapt dump badging <pulledfile.apk>
