Cellebrite just recently announced the release of their solution for performing dumping and analysis of mobile devices – Physical Analyser Pro 2.0.
Physical Analyser Pro is sporting a slick new UI, enhanced searching functionality, plugin chaining , enhanced decoding for iPhones and promises to be a huge leap forward in taking cell phone examinations to deeper level. Of particular interest to the community is bound to be support for working with chip off dumps.
When Cellebrite announced the release, there was a rumor that the update was only available as a new purchase. Chris Shin and Jason Rogers of Cellebrite quickly set the record straight – Physical Pro Analyser 2.0 is available as a firmware update with a current subscription.
