This presentation I will be focusing on what is typically referred to as destructive methods for data acquisition from embedded devices. Focusing on the process of removing embedded Multimedia Media Controller (eMMC) devices from circuit boards to gain access to their contents. But we will take it a step further by covering how to restore the device back to operation including methods and technics on altering the devices firmware prior to rebuilding, to allow for full root level access to functional system after recovery. Topics covered will include, Device removal, eMMC firmware extraction and modification methods. Hot air and infrared reflow methods, BGA re-balling manually and with re-ball kit.
