Release highlights:

XRY 9.1

XRY 9.1 introduces an updated version of the “Categories and Time Span” step by step feature which allows examiners to quickly refine their extractions to individual file categories within specified time ranges. This allows operators to restrict mobile device investigations to help comply with data privacy requirements, such as time restrictions or specific data types.

XRY also includes significant improvements in the recovery of location data from both iOS and Android databases.

In XRY 9.1, you can now perform physical extractions of LG Android Qualcomm based devices. This new solution will empower you to overcome locked devices for a complete data extraction.

The new version of XRY features multiple enhancements to the user interface:

  • Design improvements to the Case Overview to make it easier to find XRY files.
  • New step-by-step procedures to help users save time when creating a new case.

…and much more.

MSAB also offers service options for approved agencies that need access to the most challenging locked or encrypted mobile phones in critical cases. These services provide access to many of the latest Samsung Galaxy, Huawei and many other Android devices. Please contact us at for more information.

XAMN 5.1

XAMN now enables you to parse content from warrant returns and include that data in your case as .xry file. The first iteration is designed to support Snapchat warrant returns and it will address popular returns from Facebook, Google, iCloud and Instagram in future releases.

XAMN 5.1 also introduces an enhanced Case Overview display of all apps in the case and the number of decoded artifacts per app to speed up the selection for examiners.

In addition, XAMN now supports the latest VICS 2.0 database for use with child abuse investigations. MSAB is proud to continue working closely with Project VIC International and the community to help detect and prevent the spread of child sexual abuse material.

XAMN Horizon introduces a new capability that automatically links person profiles which are identified as related, helping you to focus investigations on people of interest and build a complete profile of a suspect, using all available identifiers.

In XAMN Elements you can now run your Python Scripts directly, without the need to launch XRY.
