Good to know! Can you tell us the exact CM version for the records?

That tool would be the GSM parser used on the phone. In the SnoopSnitch code base you can find it under ./contrib/gsm-parser (or in its separate repository: http://opensource.srlabs.de/git/gsm-parser.git). The compile.sh script in the SnoopSnitch repo is also able to build this for Linux:

$ cd contrib
$ ./compile.sh -t host
