Device encryption is one of the greatest challenges for investigators today. Understanding this, we continue working on decryption algorithms to allow investigators to decrypt Android physical dumps. The new Oxygen Forensic® Detective 11.5 introduces a universal method that helps bypass screen locks and extract a decrypted physical dump of Android devices based on Mediatek chipset.

MTK Android devices may have software or even hardware encryption. The latest MTK device models are generally encrypted using hardware bound keys. If these keys are not obtained, device physical images cannot be decrypted. However, Oxygen Forensic® Detective 11.5 now allows investigators to bypass both screen lock and disk encryption (no matter if it is software or hardware) to extract a complete decrypted physical dump.

Using this method is easy. Investigators simply choose “MTK Android dump”/ “Bootloader modification” in the Oxygen Forensic® Extractor and then follow the instructions to upload a boot image patch onto the device. Once the extraction is finished the data will be processed, decoded and analyzed.


Starting at iOS 11.2 Apple changed the authorization algorithms making it nearly impossible to extract iCloud backups via a username/password or token if 2FA was enabled.

Extraction is available via login and password and complete instructions on the process are given in Oxygen Forensic® Cloud Extractor.
