AXIOM’s newer support for passcode bypass on a variety of locked mobile devices—through the use of recovery images for Samsung and Motorola phones, and of download mode in some LG, MediaTek (MTK), and Qualcomm phones—has proven most valuable to Ministere examiners.
“I tested AXIOM to analyze a physical copy of a Samsung Galaxy S6 with Android 7. I was satisfied entirely. UFED Ultimate was unable to support the extraction I got using TWRP on the [Galaxy S6]. AXIOM supported it easily and parsed useful artifacts effortlessly. I was able to give a well-presented case report to my colleague investigator.”
