GPU-accelerated password recovery for MediaTek-based LG devices

Passware Kit Mobile recovers lock passcodes for LG mobile devices with MediaTek chipsets (MT6735/MT6750/MT6753/MT6755), supporting Android versions 5-7. The recovery speed can be accelerated on NVIDIA and AMD GPUs reaching 80 — 200 passwords per second on NVIDIA 2080 Ti for smartphones with Secure startup option enabled.

The software detects the type of passcode used, i.e. regular password, numerical PIN, pattern, or knock code, and automatically adjusts the attack settings. There is no need to keep the device connected during the recovery process! For devices with Secure startup option disabled, Passware Kit Mobile instantly decrypts the data and performs the recovery of user password afterwards.

The decrypted device data is typically saved as EXT4 file system image in DD format, which is commonly supported by forensic applications for further analysis.

The full list of supported models and instructions how to start user data extraction process are available on our website.

Data extraction from applications on LG: Signal, Wickr, 1Password

After the passcode recovery on the MediaTek-based LG devices, Passware Kit Mobile extracts records from the following applications: Signal and Wickr messengers and 1Password manager. The extracted records are saved in the “applications” directory of the project folder.

iOS 15.5 support

The new version of Passware Kit Mobile now supports Apple devices with chipsets prior to A11 running iOS 15.5.

Support for Apple devices with A9X chip
