I just wanted to know, is it possible to recover lost data such as deleted text messages or WhatsApp messages from iPhone 7 with a passcode.  What if this was not backed via icloud.  Is there any way this can be done?



So For this Particular Device you can take advantage of the Checkm8 vulnerability that effects iPhone 4 To iPhone X. This is a hardware vulnerability and is unpatchable. You can jailbreak the phone even if the phone is passcode protected using CheckRa1n. CheckRa1n Currently Support all iOS versions upto 13.5.


Once you have jailbroken your device you can use forensic software to pull a "Physical FileSystem" image of the phone - that will contain Whatsapp messages and text messages. You can of course manually parse SQL's databases at your own preference.


Once the device is rebooted,the device will no longer be jailbroken. you will need to repeat the process to regain root access.


Hope this helps.


Could you specify please how to do that? As far as I know it is not working on a password protected device. From the "official" website:

"Q: I lost my passcode. Can checkra1n decrypt my data or get access to a locked device?
A: No."

Checkm8 processing in Belkasoft Evidence Center has nothing to do with checkra1n and the user lock IS known...

Same question here, I have the same model phone and we do have the password.  The messages that we're looking for on the device was deleted from iMessage. We ran the phone with the latest version of Cellebrite using the checkra1n full file system.  Is there a way to get the deleted message?  I read here that maybe I could look into the SQL database, if so where would I start to look in that or anywhere else?  We know the time and date the message was sent from this device, just trying to see if we can find it since the person deleted the group text the day they handed in the phone. Any guide with this will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you

Oxygen Forensic Detective 12.6 offers full file system extraction using the checkm8 vulnerability from Apple iOS devices. The process of device acquisition via ckecma8 vulnerability is now completely automatic.
