JTAG 2.0 Forensic Training

with Certification

Home » Digital Forensic Training » JTAG 2.0 Forensics with Certification

In the NEW 5-Day JTAG 2.0 Forensics Course, students learn the latest techniques for:

  • accessing mobile devices using the JTAG technique for data recovery and device unlocking,
  • the latest about today’s memory,
  • where JTAG is useful for data recovery from mobile phones and other devices.

This comprehensive course enables investigators to learn and build on the required soldering skills and JTAG access options through practice and many practical exercises.Students leave class with a full skill set to continue on and performing JTAG back at the lab.

The newly designed course incorporates the new Teel Tech JTAG Forensic Certification “TJFC” test, as an option for students. All students receive a Certificate of Attendance, and those who pass the practical examination successfully will earn their TJFC.

Please Note: Due to current chip shortages and global shipping issues, we will do our best to provide the giveaways shown above. Should these products be unavailable, students will receive products of roughly equal value.

The instructor explained and walked us through the processes in a very understandable way. He took us through the powerpoints and the labs and insured we had a good working knowledge of the material.

Why Do We Need JTAG?

JTAG can help us get into these phones:

  • Locked Android cell phones with USB Debugging turned off.
  • Locked Windows phones.
  • Locked proprietary OS phones.
  • Physical memory acquisition when commercial tools come do not
  • Damaged or broken phones.


What Will I Learn?

  • Disassembly and assembly of devices.
  • Extensive soldering lessons, as well as using Molex Adapters.
  • Identify the test access points (TAPs) using various means, as well as the supplied Z3X Box
  • eMMC Reads – Working directly with eMMC partitions on live phones to save only the data you need.
  • Production of a physical dump of a locked / disabled USB Android phone, identification of the password and then restore user data by using your forensics tools.
  • Utilizing Python scripts for recovering pattern/pin locks. Introductory information using open source scripts.
  • Learn how to use commercial tools with JTAG dumps, such as UFED PA, Magnet IEF, Oxygen Detective
  • Students are provided with multiple devices to perform JTAG examinations.
  • All students receive Certificate of Participation
  • Students Receive the complimentary TeelTech JTAG RIFF Kit (see page 2), as well as UFED PA, Magnet IEF, Belkasoft and Oxygen demo licenses.
  • Final Practical Exam to Earn the Teel JTAG Forensic Certification “TJFC” consists of a fully assembled locked device that students disassemble, perform the JTAG acquisition to acquire the raw data, and retrieve pattern lock. Students reassemble device, power up and unlock the device with acquired pattern lock code.
  1. New Molex adapter connections – Some phones allow connection without soldering, these techniques are addressed.
  2. eMMC Reads – Working directly with eMMC partitions on live phones to save only the data you need.
  3. Identify the test access points (TAPs) using various techniques and tools.
  4. Utilizing Python scripts for recovering pattern/pin locks. Introductory information using open source scripts.
  5. Advanced HashCat processing for pattern/PIN password lock the new style Android OS phones.
  6. Implementation of JTAG support in Cellebrite to RAW – to decode dumps.

Teel Tech JTAG Chip-off Student Training 2In the class, students use today’s tools with features for assisting in analzying JTAG data, including UFED Physical Analyzer and IEF Forensics. Trial versions of each software are provided to students at class, along with the Riff Box and Molex connectors.
