OK thanks for all your replies.. it really explain few things to me about encryption..

So.. right now my only option is logical extraction ? (from S8+ G955F) ?

Did any of you had the similar situation to examine Galaxy S8 ?

I am running the exact same problem as you buddy.

Imo.. there is no official way (except Cellebrite CAIS) to do a physical dump of an Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ without data loss.

There are several ways to disable the encryption BUT .. as far as i know - u have to wipe data partition and thats not what we want as an examiner.

P.S
Few words about rooting which are mainly used: I don't like and don't use Rooting since is not a way of recover deleted data in my point of view. If you are working on phone where you need to recover deleted data rooting will/will not replace some of deleted information. Depends where overwritten file for getting SU will be stored in NAND... from physical point of view in block of memory and their logical block numbers connection there are no difference if rooting affect only system partition or data because it's still changes data in NAND cells......


I've never really rooted a device to obtain deleted data but I'm interested in hearing why you're against it.
If you have to try recover a deleted file and you root the device, recovering the deleted file, that's a win.
If you don't root the device you automatically can't recover the deleted file? So you've got nothing already, why would you not look into it?

There's no dilemma about that. If there are no forensically correct methods available, the device needs to be rooted.

Specified Galaxy S8+ model can be rooted via the eng. root image.

Its the ForensicFocus forum here.. so i guess it has to be a forensically flawless method Razz

As far as i know and wrote before..Root will result in an data wipe..

If someone just want to root his S8 .. he better should go to XDA Developers forum.

If u guys know another method, feel free to post here.
