1.1. Disassemble the device, remove the battery and lift up the motherboard (remove the protective cover for the flash memory chip);

1.4. While holding the test points and pressing the power button, connect the mobile device to the computer via USB cable;
2. If everything is done correctly, the Exynos device will appear in the Windows Device Manager for approximately 5-6 seconds, disappear for a short time, and then re-appear for 5-6 seconds;
3. As soon as Passware Kit Mobile proceeds to the "Preparing device" step, disconnect the test points, but keep pressing the power button.
NOTE: A continuous operation (for example, userdata extraction) requires the battery to be connected on the Samsung S7/S7 Edge, but not on the Samsung S8/S8+/Note8.
