How to Prepare an Android Device for Acquisition in Cellebrite UFED
In order to prepare an Android device for data collection, follow the following steps:
- Under Settings –> About Phone –> Software Information, you will see “Build Number”. Tap the build number seven times to enable developer mode.
- Go back one screen and scroll down to where you will now find “Developer Options.”
- Enable or disable any settings as detailed by UFED. (Turn on “Stay Awake” and “USD Debugging”, turn off “Verify apps over USB”)
- Connect to your computer and UFED to complete the data collection.
If you cannot pair with a certain device, you may have to revoke USB debugging authorizations from prior systems.
