Iphone image RAW using linux

Post Posted: Feb 17, 12 18:15

Hi to all of you, glad to have join this community, i ll feel less lonely then Smile
I have a question to ask you, how do you proceed for do a real complete image raw of an iphone using linux (or windows)

This is how i do, but the issue i am facing, is that i can never mount the image, either i build an img, a dmg or a .dd

this is how i do, using ssh from a laptop, we are assuming that openssh runs on the iphone:

ssh [email protected]_ip dd if=/dev/rdisk0 bs=1M | dd of=iphone.img

what is wrong with that? if i set bs=4096 it doesn t work, i get invalid error.
If you have a better solution for create a raw from an iphone using linux, that interest me a lot!
thx for your time
best regards

for direct trouble shooting it might be helpful to post up the Hardware and iOS versions you are dealing with.

In relation to tools that can image the iPhone the obvious first question relates to your employment. Are you working in Law Enforcement?

If you are LE then you can apply for free access to the Zdziarski toolset:
www.iosresearch.org/
They work on both Linux and Mac

Otherwise if you have access to a Mac then Sean at Katana offers a good solution:
katanaforensics.com/

My personal preference at the moment (due to its Windows and Mac support) would be the offerings from Elcomsoft:
www.elcomsoft.com/eift.html

There are other solutions that offer iPhone imaging as part of their arsenal such as the Cellebrite Ultimate unit:

Just a suggestion. Have you looked at Ubuntu?

Hi Herve


Because you are looking for possible free solution, a few posts I read that I wasn't sure whether you have read them?
