Smartphone data recovery has become increasingly common due to the availability of smart mobile devices everywhere. According to statistics, the developers of smartphone operating systems such as Android and iOS, smart mobile device users were just over 2.3 billion in 2017 and is expected to increase to about 4 billion users by the end of 2019. This means almost one 3rd of the population of the Earth own some kind smart device. This underlines the importance of smartphone data recovery as a lot of data is stored on these types of mobile devices on an hourly basis.
Why do we need smartphone data recovery specialists?
There is an increasing need for smartphone data recovery specialists as more data is lost on a regular basis because of the damage to the smartphones and mobile devices. To recover data from smartphones, a data recovery technician needs to be familiar with how data is stored by the smartphone file system which is a Unix-like. Technicians handling smartphones must be trained in Android and iOS file systems so that they can recover data when it is lost, deleted or when the smart device stops working and gets stuck in boot mode by just showing the logo.
Smartphone data recovery when it is physically or electronically damaged
When a smartphone phone is physically or electronically damaged, you cannot use software or automated methods to recover data from a smartphone mobile device. In such cases, JTAG and Chip-Off are the only methods available in hardware-based mobile data recovery used to extract the data from a smartphone or tablet when no software or manual method for Smartphone data recovery is possible. JTAG is a technique that allows data recovery technicians to bypass the smartphone operating system and read the data by using access ports on the phone’s motherboard to retrieve the data. This is normally done by rewiring these access ports. Chip-Off smartphone data recovery technique however involves removing the memory chips from the phone or tablet’s circuit board and reading the data directly from them. Both JTAG and Chip-off methods in smartphone data recovery are far more advanced and get better results than using simple automated recovery methods in which there so many barriers.
