Devices: Most Android devices
Source Image: Physical DD "userdata" image


  1. Import a physical DD image of an Android "userdata" partition by clicking the "Import Image" button on the Main toolbar.
  2. Select the parser for "Android" in the Tools toolbar.
  3. Select the data types you wish to parse out and click "Extract".


  • MPE+ will name an Android device's physical images in the format [partition_name].[sector_size].[file_system] or [partition_name].[file_system]. Changing these file names may result in not being able to correctly read the images.
