Video giving details of how to detect the passcode and perform a dump and decryption of the iPhone together with new support levels for Android devices.

Technology available to law enforcement officials by Swedish firm Micro Systemation can be used by to hack into the handset and bypass the four-digit passcode in less than two minutes.

Here’s a video of the tool, called XRY, in action against a passcode-protected iPhone 4S.

Once the iPhone has been jailbroken, the tool then goes on to ‘brute-force’ the passcode, trying every possible four digit combination until the correct password has been found. Given the limited number of possible combinations for a four-digit passcode — 10,000, ranging from 0000 to 9999 — this doesn’t take long.
