Physical Extraction Samsung Galaxy S8/S7 Active

Post Posted: Dec 14, 18 12:51

Hello all,

I have two phones I'm trying to get a physical on. Unfortunately I have not been able to accomplish this, and I need to get into the users password protected folders and deleted data. Both logical and file systems were ran without any issues, but I really need a physical.

Any suggestions? I'm more interested in getting into the S8 which is running Android version 7.0.

I’m only interested in solutions that I can try on my own, without paying thousands of dollars.

Thanks for the offer though.

Well, you may want to start looking for ENGROOT files for both phones which will allow you to gain root access without wiping userdata partition and then you can start physical extraction. I know that for S7Active, ENGROOT file is available and also public.
Good luck.

Depending on the device model, Android version and Android patch level, we also work with engineering boot based methods. The processing is manual, not some click-forensics based stuff. A single mistake is enough to brick the phone and your data is gone forever.

This kind of in-lab work usually has high costs. The costs are way higher for devices where an engboot isn't publicly available, which is the current case for the S8. If it not worth a few thousands dollars, then the case isn't important, why bother with it at all ?! Smile

Professional forensic unlocking service has its legitimate price - no Rolls-Royce for free. This forum is for professionals, not freeware surfers.
