There’s more: Passware Kit Mobile now launches faster than ever before!

Support for Samsung and Xiaomi Redmi devices is coming soon.

GPU-accelerated password recovery for MediaTek-based LG devices

Passware Kit Mobile recovers lock passcodes for LG mobile devices with MediaTek chipsets (MT6735/MT6750/MT6753/MT6755), supporting Android versions 5-7. The recovery speed can be accelerated on NVIDIA and AMD GPUs reaching 80 — 200 passwords per second on NVIDIA 2080 Ti for smartphones with Secure startup option enabled.

The software detects the type of passcode used, i.e. regular password, numerical PIN, pattern, or knock code, and automatically adjusts the attack settings. There is no need to keep the device connected during the recovery process! For devices with Secure startup option disabled, Passware Kit Mobile instantly decrypts the data and performs the recovery of the user password afterwards.

The decrypted device data is typically saved as EXT4 file system image in DD format, which is commonly supported by forensic applications for further analysis.

The full list of supported models and instructions how to start user data extraction process are available on our website.

Data extraction from applications on LG: Signal, Wickr, 1Password

After the passcode recovery on the MediaTek-based LG devices, Passware Kit Mobile extracts records from the following applications: Signal and Wickr messengers and 1Password manager. The extracted records are saved in the “applications” directory of the project folder.

iOS 15.5 support

The new version of Passware Kit Mobile now supports Apple devices with chipsets prior to A11 running iOS 15.5.

Support for Apple devices with A9X chip

Passware Kit Mobile 2022 v3 supports Apple A9 and A9X devices, such as iPad Pro 9.7” and iPad Pro 12.9”.

Support for HFS+ (iOS prior to 10.3) for A8-A10x devices

We have also added support for Apple A8-A10x devices, including iPhone 7 Plus and iPad Pro 2nd Gen, with HFS Plus file system running iOS prior to 10.3.

Faster start-up

Passware Kit Mobile was optimized for faster start-up. Enjoy!

Minor improvements and bug fixes

There is now a Troubleshooting tab in the Options dialog box, which allows for advanced configuration settings and simplifies troubleshooting.

Passware Kit Mobile comes with a built-in set of USB drivers for Apple, Huawei, and LG MediaTek devices for immediate connection of any device supported.

There are multiple other improvements and bug fixes in the new version of Passware Kit Mobile, which include but are not limited to: improved iOS keychain records decryption, fixed Dictionary Manager issues, added command-line options, and others.

Alan Platt, Professional Services Consultant at MSAB, discusses his experience as a former UK police officer working in digital forensics. He talks about the different levels of digital forensics capabilities within police forces and how MSAB products like XAMN and XEC Director are used by frontline officers versus lab analysts. 

The discussion covers how MSAB partners with law enforcement to develop custom workflows for mobile device acquisitions that facilitate ISO compliance. Alan explains MSAB's managed service offering, where approved MSAB staff can remotely access a customer's XEC Director server to assist with software updates and troubleshooting. He emphasizes the strict data segregation policies enforced by customers to prevent MSAB from accessing any sensitive case data.

Looking ahead, Alan mentions MSAB's new CEO and hints at some exciting developments coming down the pipeline.
