In-System Programming (ISP) Forensics

In this 5-day course students will gain the skills needed to perform ISP extractions from devices with eMMC and eMCP memory.


Students attending the Teel Tech In-System Programming (ISP) training will gain a comprehensive understanding and the skills to perform ISP extractions from devices with eMMC and eMCP memory.

Students learn how to determine if a cell phone supports the ISP process, locate the ISP connection points, then using a hardware / software combination of tools, connect to the phone and download its contents.

Students are provided with three sets of phones to perform chip-off extractions to understand tracing & connection points.

Students will remove chips from devices, locate ISP connection points using back tracing techniques, and then apply the ISP process to an identical phone to download the flash memory.

Students learn finer precision soldering skills as they solder to the resistors and capacitors of the PCB. And practice, practice, practice!


Students should have basic soldering skills and be comfortable working at the PCB level
