files – search for filenames on entire android device tree using ADB ‘find’


find . -name "*prop*"
  • .: represents the current folder.
  • -name: option to find files by name.
  • *prop*: filenames that contain the word prop.

OR as mentioned by @alexs on the comment, you can use:

find . -iname "*prop*"
-iname: option to find files by name but is case insensitive.

If you want to find the all files with the root folder as the stating place, do as mentioned by @IrfanLatif by using:

find / -iname "*prop*"
