Physical Extraction (LG Hack)
The "LG Hack" feature works on all LG smartphones with the new version of LG LAF protocol (this is a service download mode similar to Samsung Odin download mode) One of the first devices to feature this version was the first LG G flagship.
Every LG smartphone from the year 2013 and newer should therefore support our LG hack.
With some of them - LG G4 for example - you are even able to browse the phone's filesystem via the "Browse Phone" option in Forensic Express.
There is a way that you may be able to extract a physical image from LG phones without root access (rooting the phone).
