LG FORTUNE LG-M153 Screen Lock Bypass?

Post Posted: Wed Apr 18, 2018 12:16 pm

Colleagues,

I have a numeric screen locked LG Fortune model LG-M513 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 MSM8909) running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

I can place the phone in "download mode" which brings up a "Firmware Update" screen, but that is as far as I have gotten to attempt to bypass the screen lock.

In "download mode", the phone is displaying the following:

"633A S0.0 AS0.0 B74 SS V LG-M153 06.0.1 Hrev_10 M15310a"

I search FF for references to this phone model but did not find any.

Any suggestions to bypass the screenlock?

The LG-M153 is supported using the Cellebrite UFED EDL method.

Hello Igor -

Thank you very much for pointing me to your article!

I read your article but would like to confirm the applications I need to download, install and use to replicate the steps your article shows.

If possible, please confirm my applications, versions and sources are correct below:

1) FROM PIC 2: HUAWEI MODEM TERMINAL V0.32

Download Source???: www.unlock4modems.com/...nal-v0-32/

2) FROM PICS 3 & 4: I cannot determine the software being shown nor a source to download the software from. I do see "IDA" but cannot tell what application this is.

Is it possible that I only need the Huawei Modem Terminal V0.32 software, which I will use to send the "AT%KEYLOCK=0" command to the phone (as shown in PIC 8)???

Also, is it "safe" to download and install the Huawei Modem Terminal software to my main forensic laptop? By safe, I mean there is no spyware/malware/backdoor included; I am not a malware expert at all, but do read the news: www.theverge.com/2018/...ersecurity

I have a laptop I could install the Huawei Modem Terminal to and then later wipe if need be, but I would rather not "infect" my main forensic laptop with additional backdoors beyond what ever backdoors my government's NSA may or may not have in place.

Hello Ron,

I attempted the EDL method with the newest cable but had no success at all. I will give it a go again.

[EDIT1] I tried every variation of the Generic Qualcomm EDL download mode acquisition but no success. I am able to put the phone in "download mode" by holding the up volume key and then connecting the phone to the USB cable but no success on extracting data. I am able to use Cellebrite Cable 523 per the instructions (option 5) to put the phone in download mode, but a window comes up asking to verify if debugging mode is enabled. Obviously debugging mode is not enabled but I have tried both "yes" and "abort" options with no success. When I search in Phone Detective for this particular model, nothing comes up. [EDIT1]

** This particular phone was found on the hood of my client's car. My client believes her ex-boyfriend left the LG phone after ripping out all of the electrical wiring under her car's hood.

My Pro Bono cases seem to have interesting circumstances like this.

I will have to consult with the legal assistance lawyer who engaged me on this case, but I assume that the phone owner does not have any reasonable expectations of privacy having left the phone at the scene of an apparent crime.

I was able to use Cellebrite to extract the MSISDN number from the SIM card, which I then reported to the attorney and suggested she issue a subpoena to Cricket mobile for information regarding the phone owner (call logs and cell tower data).

It is only a theory at this point that the phone belongs to my client's ex-boyfriend and that the ex-boyfriend was the person who vandalized her car.

I am hoping to extract evidence which LE can then leverage to arrest the ex-boyfriend (I am a civilian forensic specialist and not LE).

A little late but if you have AXIOM I would give our LG bypass a try, works really well for a lot of LG devices. I haven't tried your specific model as I don't have many Cricket devices on hand but can't hurt to try.
