In order to prepare an Android device for data collection, follow the following steps: 

  1. Under Settings –> About Phone –> Software Information, you will see “Build Number”. Tap the build number seven times to enable developer mode.

  2. Go back one screen and scroll down to where you will now find “Developer Options.”

  3. Enable or disable any settings as detailed by UFED. (Turn on “Stay Awake” and “USD Debugging”, turn off “Verify apps over USB”)

  4. 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.
