Sony Xperia E5 Acquisition

Post Posted: Mon Aug 20, 2018 11:25 am

Hello colleagues,
I have Sony Xperia E5 with Boot level protection to run Android, USB Debugging mode disabled and locked bootloader.
Based on gsmarena.com it is Mediatek MT6735 so I tried MTK Hack in MobilEdit Forensic Express but nothing happened ( even if it works I know it will be encrypted)

I think It will be very difficult to do anything with this right know because JTAG or Chip-off methods are not the options right now (the raw image will be encrypted anyway).

Any other ideas what could be done with this?

Without knowing how many devices were seized at one time, have you considered extracting the other devices to try and determine the PIN or passphrase. My experience has been people reuse the same ones from phone to phone.

@Thomass30: I know a way, but I need physical access to the device. You know my email address, so please drop me a mail...

@kastajamah: true, but logically people wouldn't be asking for help if they would have other ways around already Smile
Apple passcode unlock + decrypted filesystem dump, Android user locks unlock + physical dump with decrypted userdata partition. We provide our services world-wide, but we reserve the right for choosing which tasks we take and which we deny!
