MOBILedit Forensic can perform physical extraction - a bit-by-bit image of data in the phone.

In order to perform a successful physical extraction, you need to have a rooted phone.

For more information on rooting a phone please go to How to root an Android phone? 

Physical extraction can also be performed on some Android phones utilizing exploits in their security system, for example, a set of MTK chipset-based phones and some LG models.

If the phone is rooted and connected successfully, it will be displayed below the picture of said device.

Confirm root access on the phone (a popup will appear on your phone´s screen, please tap on "Grant Access") and click OK, proceed with the Next button. In the following step, you can select the Physical extraction option.

Choose a name for the image file and make sure you have enough space on the destination drive (the physical image will be as big as the full phone´s storage)

After the physical image is created, it can be loaded into MOBILedit Forensic and then analyzed with results presented in a report.

Please note that the Physical Image creation option is ONLY available in the PRO version of MOBILedit Forensic. The option to import a Physical Image is in addition available also in the Applications Analyser of ours.
