Sometimes analysis is required on a phone that has a broken screen or dead battery. Minor repairs can be carried out in order to allow data to be acquired from the device and the investigation to go ahead.
If you have a USB device or SD card that's showing as recently formatted, or you've accidentally deleted some files on your computer, stop using the device immediately and get in touch; we may may be able to.... recover
I love teaching students the areas we currently understand, and paving the way for them to go away, pick up those research pieces and dig deeper into the lesser-known aspects of the OS and applications. I am not one to be constrained by the live demo curse and love to break out into tools to show how things work in real life. I have always learned much more by doing than watching, and this is very much my teaching style too.
