Mobile Phone Forensic Investigations

Mobile phone forensics has become more prevalent, with smartphone devices increasing in performance, data storage capacity and overall capabilities. Operating across the UK, Ireland and internationally, our digital forensic investigators are specialists in mobile phone investigations. We preserve, extract, analyse and report the electronic data retrieved from mobile devices for use in criminal, civil, corporate and legal aid matters.

JTAG Forensics

JTAG involves the disassembly of a mobile phone and the connection to test points or components on the motherboard in order to read data from the handset. A connection can be made using specialist adapters, by micro-soldering wires or a combination of the two. Wires can be de-soldered after data extraction to return the handset to its prior state. Using this method, we can extract data from handsets unsupported by forensic software along with PIN, pattern or password-protected phones.

Chip-off Forensics

Chip-Off involves the removal of the flash memory chip from a mobile phone and the use of specialist hardware and software to read the data from it. Using this method, we can extract data from handsets unsupported by forensic software or JTAG along with PIN, pattern or password-protected phones and damaged or otherwise non-working handsets.
