Use adb. To export the database without rooting.

You need to connect device to PC

Looking it up on Digital Forensic Compass, I see it's supported with the Cellebrite Ultimate; I take it you dont have access to that?

But yeah, otherwise legal authority and cloud download of suspects facebook account would be useful. Either legal request through facebook, consent+facebook takeout extraction, or using a social media capture tool with the credentials off the device.

You should be able to make full dump of that phone directly, without rooting or even fully booting the device. Old MTK, not a secure device, no forced enctyption etc.

@randomaccess
I dont have access to that

@arcaine2
With rooted device I was using DD or software to make physical image.
How to do that without root ? The bootloader is locked.

In MobilEdit Forensic Express there is option "Get physical dump from MTK phone" but the phone must have unlocked bootloader to do that.
