There is just less than a week left to cast in your votes for the Forensic 4:cast Awards. In our previous blog posts, we mentioned that Cellebrite deserves an award this year for being consistently first, and often unmatched, bringing critical mobile forensic innovations to your work environment, and for also being the first to provide support for the most popular brands and models.
Here is the third reminder why Cellebrite deserves an award:
Forensically Sound Evidence Every Time
Unlike competitors’ “black box” third-party bootloaders, UFED remains the only mobile forensics solution with custom-designed, read-only bootloaders. By controlling every part of the process, Cellebrite ensures that the bootloading is non-intrusive and that nothing is altered on the device, keeping the data forensically sound. This capability is delivered in proprietary bootloaders that support physical extraction while bypassing locks for mobile devices, which have no alternative solutions. Our custom-designed bootloaders contain a code that is specifically designed to only read the memory chips, not write them, and are thus more flexible, generic, and work with a wider variety of devices. Altogether, they make for a solution that lets you overcome barriers and ovoid data loss or overwrite.
In version 4.2.6, released August 2015, we have enhanced the bootloader method to provide physical extraction support for the latest Samsung Android devices, (including firmware SM-G900V, SM-G900A, SM-N900V, SM-N910V, SM-G860P). With the coming release of UFED 5.1, we will be providing lock bypass and physical extraction support using the enhanced bootloader method for 200 Samsung devices.
If you benefit from our unique capability to perform a physical extraction while bypassing lock, then vote for us today!

- UFED Touch for phone forensic hardware of the year
