Abstract: The increasing amount of information from damage mobile phones deemed useful for investigative lead to high demand for the timely identification, scrutiny and clarification of digital facts is becoming more crucial. In countless investigations critical data is needed as at the scene or inside a short time of period which is measured in hours as challenged to days. Most of mobile forensic triage tools were able to handle damaged mobile phones due to the significant difficulties in the field of mobile forensics. Both academic researchers around the world and the manufacturers of mobile forensics software are trying to see they came up with a solution to deal with issues regading damaged mobile. And it is evident that from 2006-2015 many mobile forensics triage framework have been proposed and developed to handle different kind of mobile phones but yet none of the tool consider handling damaged mobile phones. In this research, M_Triage framework is introduced to address the issue regarding triage examination on damaged Android-based mobile phones, with the ability to backup evidence in case of any error or loss of data.
