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.

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)

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

Hello. I just want to ask without creating a topic: is it possible to pull contacts from a Sony Xperia V phone with a broken screen? The debugging mode seems to be not enabled, different software does not see the phone through the PC, because I can't even unlock the screen.

Rep: (2303)
it seems not included

If not sure, then check. Because, for example, if enabled, you can pull out with:MyPhoneExplorer- installation confirmation is not necessary.

Or go to the SC, they will connect another screen and pull out everything. It is a cheap procedure ....

I can not check, because sensor is not working. This program does not see my phone. So off.

Samsung Galaxy S3
OS and firmware: CyanogenMod Android 4.4 KitKat

Description of the problem:
The phone fell from what the screen broke, after buying a new problem, I can’t transfer files to my PC. When you connect the cable, the phone connects as a camera, therefore I can only throw off the pictures. Phone rutovany with neof. firmware.

I tried to transfer files through adb and unified android toolkit, in both the same problem - mnt / sdcard no such file or directory

Rep: (0)
Of all the options, only the 6th is suitable. But one problem, when I turn on the phone in this way, an android with an open stomach appears, and there is an exclamation mark in the red triangle. It lights for 5 minutes, then it reboots and turns on as usual. and that cherished menu was opened. What should I do?

Died screen. The computer sees the phone.
You need to extract the application with all the data. More precisely, make a backup or folder to pull out, because There are security keys that are needed for installation on a new phone. Those that backed up before this were damaged (yes, no luck).

Help guys!
In my reellax tab 97b-01, the touch is broken, usb - flew away.
How to copy everything that is ...

Rep: (3)
I will add my five drops, as I once took out the contacts from the firmware backup that did not load. Or how to convert the file contacts2.db to .vcf

We have:
1) Backup firmware that does not boot into the OS
2) a file from this contacts2.db backup (someone may have contacts.db, it does not matter)

What do we need:
1) Ubuntu OS not lower than 12.04
2) Internet access from ubunt
3) file for conversion (found on the Internet)Attached filedb1.rar(3.17 KB)

The process itself:
1) Run ubuntu
2) Open the terminal and write sudo apt-get install sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev (inet required) =>do not need to close the terminal
3) Copy the db1.sh file to the home folder (computer / home / username)
4) Copy the file contacts2.db to the home folder (computer / home / username)
5) Return to the terminal and make the db1.sh file with an executable command: chmod + x db1.sh
6) Execute the format conversion command: ./db1.sh contacts2.db>contacts2.vcf
7) Pick up the file with the .vcf extension with contacts from the home directory
8) We are happy :)

Duplicate here!
Smashed display ZOPO ZP980, decided to restore at least pictures. I went here on the forum, found instructions on how to put the ADB driver set, but MyPhoneExplorer program did not work - did not see phone. A couple of hours tinkering in search of other programs - downloaded Android control, Android commander, they did not work. Next was Wonershare MobileGo. Immediately she also could not see the phone, offered to scan the barcode on the screen to install the application on the phone, I was again disappointed that once again past a couple ponazhimat the Welcome button, then clicked the photo tab, and lo and behold, I saw the pictures !!! !!
Then I successfully downloaded them, then at the same time I threw music and video, just in case I did the unloading of contacts, although I have them in my Google Account.
So if with other programs problems try it! Good luck!
