Hi all,

I accidentally del two storage folder (yes, same name) in my phone and now all my media and personal files are gone,

is that just a link or it's actually all the files and I know I can't mount as UMS, would it be possible to recover the files?

ok... now I just noticed that I dont have proper root after the OTA 4.4.4,

does sideload still work with unlocked bootloader still? with the least tempering the memory?

Flashing the OTA will replace recovery and lose root but if your bootloader is still unlocked, just flash a recovery and root.

Diskdigger sort of works, many thanks on the issue, at least I don't have to do everything from the beginning


Cheers
