“Generic Profile” is a feature built into Cellebrite UFED which helps users get past certain service pack issues they are experiencing.

Under “Mobile Device” and “Browse Devices,”, there is the option of “Generic Profiles”. Here there are many choices, but we will focus on MTX Live and Qualcomm Live.

You have the option to choose either “Physical” and “File System.” When in doubt, click on the small “i” for more information before proceeding. Listed is more information about the extraction type, what to expect from the extraction, and what needs to be done to the device.

By providing this information, generic profiles can be helpful, impactful, and informative to you during your investigations.
