Re: Android based phones

Thought I would make a double post. Whilst searching I noted there is an app called 'Superuser' by JesusFreke: "Superuser provides a sudo-style interface that notifies you whenever an application needs to perform an operation that requires root access."

s it the case that the barrier to root access seems to revolve around keystore certificates when access attempts occur?

PTerminal no longer works as root access was closed with the last round of updates.

Superuser requires a modded firmware/jailbroken phone. These apps worked once upon a time but have not worked since the last round of updates in December. If you're analysing a G1 from before December then you may have a chance with one of these two tools, if not, you'll have to hack it.

BTW neither one of these are currently available in the Market.

Thanks for that DFICSI. I was just reading about following reboot type in telnetd to the android and it speeds up the process. But the thread discussion I read was November 2008. So its after December 2008 - useful guideline.

Regarding commercial solutions, the latest firmware for Cellebrite's UFED states support for the G1. I wrote a short entry at:

FYI, I am collaborating with several people have have begun writing a book on Android Forensics. You can see an outline, keep up with the progress, sign up for an email alert, etc. at:

viaforensics.com/android

If you have specific questions, let me know as I've experimented with many techniques. I will speak on this topic at Mobile Forensics World 2009...hope to meet some of you there.
