Phone Hack, iRecovery Stick
Usually, recovering deleted data from cell phones is only possible using special software designed for computer forensic investigations or for updating the firmware on the phone. There are many products that recover deleted text messages from SIM cards, however; iPhones do not store user data on SIM cards making such products useless for iPhone users.
The iRecovery Stick (iRS) uses the same computer forensic software produced by Paraben Corporation which is used by law enforcement and computer forensic investigators around the world to download as much data from the iPhone as possible without altering the phone in any way. The process is simple. Connect your iPhone to your Windows based computer (cancel the iTunes Sync if it starts) and connect the iRS to the same computer. Open the iRS drive and run the iRS.exe program. Once open, click the "Start" button and the recovery process will begin. Due to the deep level data recovery, the process can take from 15 minutes to several hours to complete. Once completed, you will immediately be able to see all the data recovered from the iPhone. The majority of the data will be normal user data that has never been deleted. You will also be able to easily view all deleted data that has been recovered.
Deleted data is a tricky thing. When data is deleted from the iPhone, the phone marks the data as deleted and no longer displays it on the phone. However, this data is still there until new data overwrites it. Sometimes, this data is overwritten very quickly. If new data is never added to the phone, this data will be recoverable indefinitely. With iPhones, new data is written over deleted space first so only the most recent data can be recovered.
Recovering Data From iTunes Backup Files
The iRecovery Stick can recover deleted data from iTunes backup files stored on your Windows based system. Simply select to recover from backup files, navigate to the manifest.plist file in the iTunes backup directory and start your recovery. You'll get the same information you would from the phone at the point the backup file was created.
How it Works
Plug the iRecovery Stick in
Next, plug your stick into a USB port on your computer.
Connect Your iPhone to the Computer
Using the cable that came with your iRS, connect the iPhone to the same computer the iRS is plugged into.
If iTunes automatically opens, close it before the next step.
If your computer does not automatically ask you to open the newly attached thumb drive, go to My Computer and open the drive manually. Double click iRS.exe.
Select Where to Search & Click Start
You'll see a list of available drives to search. By default, your C: drive is selected. You can chose to expand any drive and select specific folders to search.
View the Results
Once the data recovery is complete, you can view all the data from the phone in the special viewers within the iRS program.
Supported Operating Systems: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7
