My sister broke her white I9300 Samsung Galaxy S3. She didn't had her contacts backed up on drive, and I want to recover them.
The screen is busted, so is the digitizer and glass.
I can't see anything, she has a pattern lockscreen and USB debugging is not activated. The phone is not rooted.
I can't access it in any way.
I think about installing an app from appstore on it that allows me to acces it's screen so I can enter it and activate USB debugging but I don't have any luck.
Is there any way to get it rooted so I can get off the data from it? I really need those contacts, rest of the stuff was on SD Card.
Thanks in advance

Surely contacts backed up on google?

That's hard.

Rooting and a custom recovery to support adb commands can be flashed with odin but you need blind powers to guess if the phone is entering download mode.
