Google Nexus, HTC and LG – Android Repair and Recovery
Installed on over half the mobile smartphones in the UK, Android is the world’s most popular mobile operating system, and is the software of choice for phones and tablets manufactured by Samsung, LG, Sony and HTC. Google’s own Nexus smartphones and tablets also use the Android operating system.
Note: We have a separate page for data recovery from Samsung phones running Android.
How is Data Lost On Android Phones and Tablets?
There are many different ways data can be lost on Android phones and tablets. For example files, pictures, emails and other data may be inadvertently deleted by pressing the wrong buttons, uninstalling an App or by completing a factory reset. It’s also easy to drop a tablet or phone onto a hard surface or have it fall into liquid such as a bath or sink. Both will cause damage and data loss.
Data Clinic’s Android Phone and Tablet Recovery
Data Clinic use sophisticated techniques and knowledge we’ve acquired and learnt over the years to safely recover the data from your Android mobile phone or tablet. Where as many providers of phone and tablet recovery services will only have a software solution available to retrieve your data, Data Clinic offer 2 additional hardware solutions: JTAG and Chip-Off, both of which we use successfully on Nexus, HTC and LG mobile devices.
The JTAG and Chip Off Advantage
JTAG and Chip Off are both hardware based data recovery solutions that can be used to extract the data from a mobile phone or tablet if software recovery fails. JTAG is a technique that allows us to bypass the Android operating system and read the data by using access ports on the phone’s motherboard to retrieve the data. Chip-Off involves us removing the memory chips on the phone or tablet and reading the data directly from them. Both JTAG and Chip Off are far more advanced and get better results than using simple software recovery applications.
In many instances, software applications are NOT able to recover lost data from Android phones and tablets, therefore using either JTAG or Chip Off techniques are the only options that will get the data back.

Forensic Recovery of Android Devices
Capable of storing enormous quantities of data, Android smartphones and tablets are usually a goldmine of information to forensic examiners, frequently including place data, pictures, videos, e-mails, web histories and chat logs unique to the owner of the phone. Mobile data can be extracted and used to build a timeline of how the phone was used, complete with events, whereabouts and actions at any particular data and time.
