Recover Mobile Data Using The Chip-Off Technique
The “chip-off” method is used in mobile phone data recovery when the information cannot be accessed through the user interface.
Thanks to this advanced technique, data can be recovered from mobile phones that have suffered physical or electrical damage -whether due to external causes or manufacturing faults-, as well as firmware problems (microcode that controls the device’s electronic circuits).
The chip-off also allows you to recover data from flash memories such as SD cameras and recover data from pen drives and tablets.
To perform a chip-off operation, it is necessary to desolder the memory chip from the motherboard with an infrared machine. Next, the chip will be connected to a flash memory reader to copy its content.
The objective is to obtain a complete image of the information in its raw state and finally analyze and reconstruct it using specialized software. This procedure to recover mobile data is delicate and laborious, so it is usually used as a last resort when other less invasive solutions are not applicable.
Recover Data From LG G4 Mobile
For example, in the On data laboratory, we have used chip-off to recover data from the LG G4 model (in the header image), which had become unusable due to a known manufacturing fault.
Since last year, many LG G4 users have found that their terminal suffers from unexpected restarts and overheating.
The origin of the problem: the welds of some motherboard components deteriorate, and its overheating causes the phone to continually reset itself.
The symptoms: the mobile enters a loop of reboots when turned on, becomes unusable, and it is impossible to access the data.
The solution: In this case, the chip-off has been used to recover the mobile data.
Data Recovery For Broken Phones
It’s no surprise that mobile phones end up vast housing amounts of our most valuable information, given their unstoppable rate of penetration and usage. Contact books, phone numbers, emails, music, photos… irreplaceable content if the device fails and we don’t have it, or the backup doesn’t work.
When phones break down, manufacturers’ technical services are often only available to repair device failures, and data is lost. If you want to recover data from a broken mobile, do not hesitate to contact our data recovery laboratory. On data has the most advanced technology and a team of technicians specialized in recovering data from mobile phones, tablets, and any other digital device.
