Security Bypassing

The Security Bypassing feature may help you to get more data from the device using multiple methods such as EDL, MTK, and LAF. In some cases, even if you don’t know the passcode, PIN, or pattern lock, with MOBILedit Forensic, you can gain root access on Android devices. For iOS there are instructions on how to jailbreak iPhones and the tools to do so in our connection kit.

Security Bypassing methods are only available in the MOBILedit Forensic PRO and PRO+ versions.

Thanks to Live Updates, we can add support for new devices or chipsets to our database by package updates, without reinstalling the software. “Live Updates” is a unique feature of MOBILedit Forensic and a sure strong point, providing immediate updates for application analysis, security bypassing and other features, live and as often as needed.

Some methods get full access to user data, without removing the passcode, PIN or pattern lock and the device will remain locked.

Main benefits:

  • Creation of the device's physical image with EDL, MTK, LAF, etc.. A bit-by-bit copy that can be re-imported for further or future analysis.

  • You may want to acquire a physical image, even if it is encrypted as it might be possible to get better analysis results as new features are added to MOBILedit Forensic or you upgrade to MOBILedit Forensic PRO+.

  • Root access to more data by Rooting or Jailbreaking devices.

Remember, the following information will help you determine which of the Security bypassing options will be possible and likely to be successful:

  • Make

  • Model

  • Operating system & version

  • System on chip (SOC) type or chipset

  • Security patch level for Android
