Hello colleagues,
I have iPhone 3G with iOS 3.0.1
I need to extract SMS from the device.

I connect it to the iTunes. But the backup option is grey out. (when I connect iPhone 5 the backup option is avaible)

iTunes informs me that I can update iOS to version 4.2.
Do I have to do it in order to create the backup ?

Oxygen Forensic Detective successfuly detects the device

but a few seconds later gives me Extraction Fail

What should I do to extract the content of this 10years old phone?

I tried also Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit

Device connected iPhone (hp)
Hardware model N82AP
Serial number 83841WL2Y7H
iOS version 3.0.1
Device ID 18b3acc439a0671d318d40e02783ab3a8231e5b2

Write backup to directory <current directory> e\App

ERROR Could not start service com.apple.mobilebackup2.

Press 'Enter' to continue

The device is unlocked and above error is occured.

With iPhone 5 there is no problem with creating backup

What could be a problem ?

I sure what the problem is very old iOS.

If you want, I will be able to do chip-off of the iPhone for you.

I could update iOS to 4.2 via iTunes but I cannot be sure if updating iOS back then doesnt affect a user data. Someone know this ? Nowadays updating is not a problem but who can be sure how it was 10y ago 0

Dear fellas
Problem solved 8)

I installed old iTunes from 2010 on another PC then connected 3G with iOS 3.0.1 and this time it works. iTunes created backup successfully.

I don't got such an old device now to test it., but I think you can also create a physical dump using the libimobiledevice related programs under linux.

@passcodeunlock thanks for valuable tip.
I will look closer to that libimobiledevice library in a free time

Right now I just needed to extract sms from that iPhone.
