Android Logs - Actually Useful
In all the classes I've taken for mobile forensics we've never discussed the logs that are available in the Android Recovery Menu. I've been working on a device for quite some time and decided to peer through the logs. There's actually a lot of useful information in there! I was able to find the chipset running on the device and the last security patch that was installed. Definitely helped me to think of some alternatives for the device.
Thanks for the post. I have never looked at these logs. I think sometimes we are in such a hurry due to the volume of cases and devices that we have to process that we forget to look for relevant information in other places especially when we get stumped.
It would be great if you could write up your findings in a blogpost somewhere!
