  1. This, but replace dd with dd_rescue. It uses a variable block size and will get done faster.

    Pretty cool, I used a pre-made plastic case for USB Drive that it was designed to fit. Just had to cut a hole for the antenna with a round file. Enclosure Options YARD Stick One ships without an enclosure. It is designed to fit 3A-260906U from New Age Enclosures, but you will need to drill a hole for the SMA connector. Another good option to protect YARD Stick One is 5/8" clear heat shrink tubing. via: Pretty sure it fits the Ubertooth One as well.
  3. I think it may be because they dove head first into the corporate end of site surveying, inspections, etc. They used to be more hobbyist.
  4. I'd suggest finding someone with a Cellebrite UFED/4PC. Maybe local PD if they would be willing to let you use it. It automates the process of backing up the original recovery partition, flashing the custom one, and replacing with the original after extraction.
  5. I just saw a HUGE price drop in 3DR Solo. It used to be ~$1300 and now it is ~$300. It does not come with the gimbal or GoPro (camera).
  6. If you don't backup and replace your original recovery partition, the phone will no longer be able to get OTA updates.
  7. Unlock codes vary depending on manufacture. Especially with the lockout times and so on. You may need someone with cellular forensics to take a look. If you can find someone with a Cellebrite UFED or Cellebrite 4PC, they may be able to bypass the pin lock. Otherwise your options are possibly JTAG, which will semi-take apart your phone, hook it up to a firmware flasher box, and pull the storage data off that way. The next option would be either Direct eMMC (similar to JTAG but connects to the chip directly) or chip-off (physically removes the storage chip to read externally).
  8. Bumping is basically "Thread Necro". This thread hasn't had activity since July 22, 2016. Please try the suggestions listed here:!
  9. Yes, this has gotten way out of hand. Thank you for locking. If anyone has questions/issues with it, direct message me.
  10. I found the picture. Took a while haha. But this is a picture I took with my smartphone camera through the lens of a microscope. The centered USB pin is broken and you can see how it's broke on the top part of the soldering. Also the darker blue area that is next to the crack is a lifted trace. Fun times. With this one, my co-worker and I were able to fiberglass brush and remove the blue coating to expose the trace and solder a small jumper wire and read from the device.
  11. The photo is kind of fuzzy to see the real damage on the board. If the pad and trace was pulled up from the board it's going to be a bit of a mess. You can, in theory, use a jumper wire as mentioned above to jumper the connections to the proper trace. You will need some good quality soldering iron and solder, possibly a form of magnification, and small gauge wire. You most likely will need a fiberglass brush to expose the copper trace you need to solder to. I have done fixing on USB thumb drives where the ports were ripped off. The hard part is the unknown potential damage that you cannot see. I have a picture of one I repaired where I took a picture through a microscope to see the damage. I need to find it again :-/.
  12. The pre-installing crap in the Windows ISO would be more for mass installs using the answer file. I don't even know if you can do that anymore to be honest, and it's a TON of BS configuration in my opinion. What I use is a ghost bootable USB. What I have is a really old version of Ghost, but it still works. You may need to disable UEFI boot settings in the BIOS to boot from USB. Instead of ghosting the whole drive, you can backup just the partition. Then you can re-image that image file to the partition. Saves writing out the entire disk that way. You can also look into clonezilla which only images the allocated files. This means the backup image would be smaller. I try to avoid installing applications that constantly get updates, like Chrome, Firefox, etc. Mostly I do it to have my local user account setup. Removed all those stupid tiles from the Windows 10 start menu. Setup my security and power settings. Killed most of the "phone home" stuff with Spybot's anti-beacon. Setup the desktop wallpaper, etc.
  13. There are many suppliers listed on there. Hope that helps.
  14. Oh, Happy Days. I'm actually shocked the remote uses RF instead of IR. Good find.
  15. I made a post somewhere with pictures if you need it.
