Those cambridge researchers are testing 2 or 3 years old android phones. Come on, invest and test at least latest flagships with android 4.4.2, and 5.x
Dext, 23 May 2015I just reminded you that conducting a study with those android version is still relevant since... moreIt's 50-50, which is still a major thing. But speaking of logic, being this a software issue and *if* it may already be fixed in the latest versions of the software... do I really need to spell it out? (What's keeping manufacturers to solve it for everyone?)
This is one of the many reasons Androids will never be taken seriously by business or government users. No default FDE and now this.
i still love apple, because you can eat apple, but android, YOU CANT! hahahaha :D
I Would still take any Android phone over an iPhone. Any iPhone.
Prish, 23 May 2015Nice very NICE feature of Android but i am not Android user & never beYour lost.
Anonym, 23 May 2015I will take a wild guess and say reading isn't your "forte"I just reminded you that conducting a study with those android version is still relevant since phones running those versions account largest chunk of android distribution percentage. Ill take a wild guess also, logic is not your forte
RaZ1, 23 May 2015Cool story, bro! So, I suppose that all those dev's from XDA had NO CLUE about this "ongo... moreYes, most likely a lot of people had a clue about it... the thing is, when recoveries are made achieving that kind of security is never in mind. TWRP always gave fair warning about it, even if not as bluntly as this paper.
Fin, 23 May 2015Well just overwrite after reset...oh! make sure that u use an second acount.It's not the "silver bullet", as flash memories have wear leveling and over-provisioning for the memory controller. A part of your personal data may be in a newly reserved memory block for the controller and thus, no matter how much you write to the memory, that data will be outside your abilities to overwrite until the controller releases it. -- A motivated and knowledgeable individual will be able to retrieve that data (by removing the memory from the phone and using specialized equipment).

Igiiiiiii, 23 May 2015get an iphone!Ahahahaha!
An iPhone that, after being stolen, you'll get miscellaneous pics of some China man in your iOS cloud account.
Way to go... LOLZ!
The Apple's propaganda must do whatever dirty tricks , to do the "thermonuclear". Spending up to the last cent.
Georgio, 23 May 2015Still prefer apple than androidI prefer my Nokia 808PV.
So, wtf cares? They're bloody phones.
The only thing we do is making some rich Korean, Chinese, American, Indian whatever bloke, getting richer! After that we're making the bloodsucking telecoms and their stupid decadent CEO's or other business execs, getting richer (and more decadent).
We should try to enforce what WE want from devices onto these companies instead of the other way around. They break stuff, they remove features, they concentrate on things that we don't give a damn about (like an anorexic phone with lame battery-life and a ridiculous screen resolution). It should be different... no matter what logo that phone has!
