Hey there,

today my girlfriends Nexus 5 fell on the floor and the display was damaged badly. There is no way to unlock the phone (pattern lock) or use it at all via touch-display as it is completely destroyed.

Is there any chance to backup all data from the phone ? It is unlocked and rooted running the latest PA with a custom recovery.

As far as I remember the phone accepts her laptop via 1-click-root-tool-kit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks !

Do you have a custom recovery? You could use adb pull if you do. Boot into recovery and from you pc use
adb pull /sdcard c:\nexus5

Can also backup /system and /data like this.

You may need to start "adb root" first though

Ensure phone is off.
Hold vol down + Power until it vibrates
Press VOL up twice and press power (Vibrates again)
adb root
adb shell
mount /system
mount /data
exit
abd pull /data c:\nexus\data
adb pull /system c\:nexus\system

Hmm alright, is there any way to do this without re-starting the phone ?

For example right now she can see who is calling her on her phone and then re-call that person from another phone. If I once turn the phone off then there is no chance of starting it again as you cannot enter the pin code on the damaged display.

Thanks again !

Not if it's PIN protected, no. Have you considered plugging a mouse in?

You can plug a mouse into the Nexus 5 ? Seriously? :P How exactly does that work?

With a mouse I might be able to do a full titanium backup pro - backup and then transfer if on my laptop.
