OK So long story short G2's digitizer is dead, glass shattered, i can still see the screen and i'm getting a USB OTG cable tomorrow, that will make all of this completely null and void(maybe wednesday). (ALSO Caps is being used for things i think are important, i'm going to be posting this in a few places so i need it to be universal, i hope you all understand)
BUT i still want to try my damndest to get into this phone and backup files, JUST BECAUSE I BELIEVE I SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO.(or at the very least "able")
So for those as adventurous as i am, I'd like to hear any suggestions on how to get access to the device (MOUNT STORAGE) in its current state. Details below:
-Digitizer is shattered
-lcd is completely fine
-all buttons work (theres only three lol)
-i have sound and vibration
-wireless storage is off(turned it off right before it fell from my hands to the douchebag floor below)
-USB DEBUGGING(although i distinctly remember enabling it many times) Is NOT ON. (Or at least adb will not recognize the device.)
-adb WILL recognize the device in SIDELOAD MODE
-no custom recovery
-no custom roms
-literally purely stock
-And of course USB Connection is set to CHARGE ONLY(i didnt do this, but apparently it remembers your LAST choice and uses that as default, stupid lg, why let me chose the option to "ask every time", if you're going to default to my last choice anyway?)
Now i really just want to access my pictures(there's a pic of my mom that i took and she REALLY wants it and bugs me daily about it)(You can blame the G2's amazing camera)
Now here's what i HAVE TRIED:
-moborobo sp? (some program)(and a few others like it)
-tried making my own OTG cable....failed miserably (i'd upload a pic...but yea...)
-adb via wifi
-tried flashing a custom recovery, but USB debugging wasnt enabled so it failed
-had the idea of using chrome Remote desktop, but i cant connect to it in its current state lol
-thought about bluetooth, but my lame laptop doesnt have bluetooth (i'd be willing to explore this option tho, sounds fun)
-nothing "illegal"......yet.....totally kidding, i want to be able to do this as legally as possible
So brothers and sisters, does anyone have any options they'd like to try out?
If we try anything CRAZY is there a way to force the phone to make a backup?
Is there a way to disassemble the phone and connect it straight to the onboard storage?
i'm just throwing ideas out there.
Thanks in advance!!
