Re: erase option?

Cops nowadays have specially shielded bags to put evidence phones into, to prevent remote access and wiping. Then the search/download is usually done inside a protective faraday cage room/case/bag to prevent the phone from receiving external wipe commands.

And how are you going to send the wipe command stripped of all your possessions and clothes, stuck in an unelasticated tyvex coverall and thrown into a holding cell?
