We retrieve personal data from a damaged / broken machine


Attached Image


It's no secret that with our "smart" devices anything can happen, including such an unpleasant breakdown as a broken touchscreen. What to do in this case? After all, it left all our data: contacts, messages, etc.

Of course, the simplest solution is to replace the damaged screen. But if it is not, and the data is needed yesterday? In this topic we will try to collect all possible ways to restore the data we need.

Solutions
Enable USB debugging
Connect USB mouse and USB keyboard at the same time.


1. The most obvious is changing the touchscreen. Where to get? Ask inaccessories themeyour device orhere.

2. If the device supportsMHL protocol, you can try to connect it via HDMI to a monitor or TV. We connect the mouse via Bluetooth or USB and in case of successful connection we try to save our data to the memory card.

3. If USB debugging was enabled, then try using the ADB command
adb pull /data/data/com.android.providers.contacts/databases/contacts2.db
or through the applicationQtADB. You can read more about ADB in this thread.ADB and all that can be done with it

4. We try to get contacts using the application.MyPhoneExplorer. We put and copy the contents to the computer. The telephone part of the program is installed without confirmation from the display.USB debugging must be enabled!

5. ThroughDroid Explorer (PC) - how to pull out the contacts (Post # 12272051)

6. Another way through the system menuRemoving personal data from damaged / broken machine (Post # 33349654)

7. Through the Wonershare MobileGo app:Extract private data from damaged / broken machine (Post # 37392987)

8. If Viber was installed on PCRemoving personal data from a damaged / broken machine (Post nic-flas_VRN36RU # 45351907)

9. Online contacts2.db to vCard converter

10. Enable USB debugging using screenshots(if the touch works, but the screen does not work)

11. Method for Samsung with disabled USB debugging

12. Access to a smartphone with a broken screen. Requires a PC with installed GNU / Linux (for example, Ubuntu)

13.
The method of obtaining contacts in the open form without root and without online converters.

14.
Experience in recovering data from dead or half-dead smartphones on an MTK processor

15.
ZTE Blade AF3 (Spreadtrum SC7731)

Help pull out contacts!

Fly iq440
OS and firmware: Android 4.0.4

Description of the problem:
Hello! :-)

there isstockFly IQ440 phone with broken screen glass. Glass removed. Touch, of course, does not work, but the screen and the image is in perfect order. All that remains of the sensor is a small train sticking up near the screen. When you touch the loop, the phone responds, but it is very unpredictable and it is almost impossible to do something sensible in this way.

The task is to pull out the contacts that are in the phone’s memory.

I did a couple of days was looking for information on the internet and in this forum, made attempts to re-establish contact, but all the solutions I have found require the inclusion of debugging via USB or plus it also of Ruth. Attempts to enable debugging by matsanya loop failed. Maximum, I was able to go into the settings and proskrolit to the point "to the upstream developer", but to get at him and failed. Thought about controlling the smart via Wi fi or bluetooth (to include them is not difficult), but all I found - requires prior installation of the application on the smart. Also tried to connect the mouse through the active power OTG cable - not determined.

In the end, I decided to ask you for advice. Perhaps in this particular situation there are some ways to restore contacts?
: thank_you:

You can also tryflash CWMusing SP FlashTool, boot into recovery, make a nandroid backup to a memory card andpull outcontacts2.db from the image.

There were thoughts to cloud with the firmware, but I still did not dare to try it. I'm afraid that all data will be erased. Is there any chance?

If the rest of the hardware is alive, the scatter is correct and flash recovery only in flashtool, then data corruption is unlikely

Thank you all, the question was decided by joint efforts of colleagues at work. At the same time he decided to ridiculously simple - without firmware, cables and left software. Describing!

There was an idea to try to enter the system menu of the phone. At first I tried to turn on with "power" and "volume-" clamped, but there is nothing sensible, and then I turned on "power" + "volume +" and there was an interesting menu item "backup user data". Control in the menu by using the volume keys and on. I forgot to say, before that I inserted a memory card into the phone.
Began copying backup weighing 144 mb. When finished, the flash drive removed, inserted into the computer and found the file with the extension .backup, unpacked using 7zip. The resulting file was unpacked again and saw a bunch of folders. On the way
/data/data/com.android.providers.contacts/databases/
lies the cherished contacts.db.
Further executed the first two points fromof thispost and request fromof this. The resulting file is opened by Excel.

Thank you all, I hope my experience will help someone: thank_you:

Hello. I describe the situation. Uranyl tablet (Asus ME301T), crashed touch, but the screen intact, does not respond to touch. I tried to push the buttons in different combinations and I got out what the menu 3-point, 1 load the OS, the second I do not know that, and the third was written Wipe data. in practice, I realized that it erases all data and settings. Now, when you turn the tablet в„–1 there is a window with a choice of language, and so many different items out there 7 or 8. So what I'm this, I want to connect the mouse to the tablet that would be at least something it could do. If I connect a mouse if it will work at once on the stage of the initial setup android? And it turns out I have a brick without control. Touch does not get replaced soon.

Tell me please.

USB debugging is not enabled.
Displays are not working.

No options?

I rummaged through many sites but did not find a solution. At the hands of HTC Desire 600 dual sim with a broken sensor (maybe working but not everywhere) and not working display, but the device itself turns on. All attempts to connect to the phone via adb, myphoneexplorer and other programs were unsuccessful (debugging is most likely not enabled). Internal memory and SD are highlighted on the computer. Tell me if there is a way to pull out sms or somehow enable debugging.

SileLence, Hi, are you sure you unpacked using 7-zip? Just the exact same situation, but 7-zip does not unpack, says that it is not its format.

Good afternoon, members of the forum. The problem is this: the screen is broken on Texet TM-4072. It is necessary to extract data (photos, contacts, etc.). The forum made a mess - but did not find a solution for myself. There is no rue, debugging is not enabled, no synchronization has been performed.
ADB can not be filled accordingly. Access to the phone is not stupid.
MyPhoneExplorer does not see the phone.
Is it really something to pull out or - just a replacement display or in the trash?



Rep: (1)
Good evening, I wanted to know if the Usb debugging is disabled and the display is broken on the phone and the touch, that is, an option to extract all the data from it yourself without a service center?
Samsung Galaxy S 4
Just in the center they want 4.5t. Rubles, and in the city where I live it is half the cost of repair and I just don’t see the repair of the Smysl as I’ve already hit repairing RAM
Who can that will advise efficient ?!
thank

The best option would be to find a donor. Take a screen from it, put and copy your information.



Rep: (18)
* Messir999,
same story, same phone. debugging is disabled, this is the biggest problem. At the moment, as I understand no versions.

1. The most obvious is changing the touchscreen. Where to get? We ask in the subject of accessories of your device or here.

For popular models of devices, and in large cities, sometimes you can do without replacing the screen as such.

It is necessary to “only” find a service in which a similar model of the device is often repaired, in such services often you can find just a worker, albeit not a new one, touchscreen (or screen module) for your model of device.
In this case, you can often agree for a modest fee to install a temporarily working touchscreen on your damaged device, and extract data from it, even without collecting the device, but "on weight".

Apparently this option and'll do ..

ps via ADB writes that device unauthorized. That's just it seems to me that I definitely turned on USB debugging when I did the root of the law ((There's nothing you can do about this?

debugging is disabled, this is the biggest problem
if still relevant, trySo.

Android contacts are stored in the /data/data/com.android.providers.contacts/databases/ directory in the contacts.db file or on some contacts2.db firmware.
This file is a sqlite database and can be read using the appropriate software.

Now, how did I get the contacts from the phone that the sensor refused. Contacts have never been exported, the USB debugging function has been disabled, and using the methodin a way, 7zip could not unpack .backup made by standard recovery, but adb for some reason did not see the required files in the folder
data.

Find onsavagemessiahzine.comClockworkMod recovery (CWM) installation informationClockworkMod FAQrecovery for your device and download the required files.
For this we usually need:
1. drivers for connecting the device to the computer
2. recovery.img - CWM image
3. fastboot or FlashTool - will be required to flash the CWM image in the device, choose a more understandable one for you
4. I need an archiver to unpack the backup file (I used 7zip)
5. and some program for working with databases (I usedsqlitestudio)

now move on to the actions of pulling out the necessary information:
1. I’ll not write much about downloading and installing drivers, images and programs. Most of them should be described in the instructions for your device onsavagemessiahzine.comand done almost everywhere the same
2. Installing CWM try to enter it (usually for this you need to hold down the power button and increase / decrease the volume)
3. there we select the item for creating backups 'buckup and restore' and make it to the 'Buckup' flash drive :)
4. Download the data.ext4.tar file from the flash drive to the computer, it should be in the clockworkmod / backup folder (the name will also appear in the name of its creation)
If there is no possibility to insert a flash drive into your device, perhaps this will help:
after installing CWM I managed to connect viaadb, and theoretically probably you can copy backup files to a computer.
the teams you need
adb devices- connection
adb shell- launch remote command line
ls- getting a list of folders and files
cd<path to android>- go to folder
adb pull<path to android><PC path>- copy the file from the device to the computer

5. open the archive and extract contacts.db or contacts2.db from /data/data/com.android.providers.contacts/databases/
6. run the program sqlitestudio, select the database file, which we got from the archive, in the dialog box to open the database ('Database' ->'Add Database')
7. Further we insert a similar query into the SQL query tab ('Service' ->'Open SQL Query Editor')
SELECT normalized_number, display_name
FROM phone_lookup, raw_contacts
WHERE phone_lookup.raw_contact_id = raw_contacts.contact_id


I will explain the meaning of the current request
create a table with columns normalized_number, display_name based on phone_lookup tables, raw_contacts
provided that the data from the phone_lookup table and the raw_contact_id column = the data from the raw_contacts table the contact_id column
from this code, I can assume that:
There are some tables in which there are columns, in each of which similar data is stored, in our case these are line numbers, name and phone number
phone_lookup
raw_contact_id | normalized_number
1 |+79001111111
2 |+79002222222
raw_contacts
contact_id | display_name
1 | Vasya
2 | Petya

those. we use our query to get a new label, the lines of which are formed from the two original lines by combining them
where data is raw in one line where raw_contact_id = contact_id
normalized_number | display_name
+79001111111 | Vasya
+79002222222 | Petya

A lot of requests, because data is duplicated in almost every table, you can retrieve the name and phone from different tables and columns, looking at all the signs and finding the necessary data.
Based on this request, you can make your
SELECT 'columns separated by commas' FROM 'tables separated by commas' WHERE 'condition'
“columns separated by commas” can be written in this form [table]. [column] square brackets can be omitted, but they can be saved from errors if the names of tables / columns suddenly have names of reserved commands. Here we specify a comma, what data we want to see in the new table

"tables separated by commas" can be written in the following form [table]. Here we specify the data from which tables we want to get.

'Condition' can be written in this form [TABLE1]. [Column1] = [table2]. [Column2], or the conditions may be several and they are written through logical operators and and or, and also may be grouped by using parentheses. Conditions need to integrate data from multiple tables, and they can be used to set filters. For example, if we add to the end of our query string of single quotes 'AND display_name = "Sasha"', then in our table might not have all of our contacts from the sheet, and only that phone numbers of people called "Sasha".

I also found deleted numbers in this database for a long time, maybe it will be interesting to someone.

in the same way you can get SMS from the file /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/mmssms.db
in the file data.ext4.tar are all user files that you may need to pick up from the device

Additional information to the post above:
SMS /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/mmssms.db is delivered in a similar way
also in the file data.ext4.tar is the rest of the user data that you may need to take from the device
