Recover deleted files with mac

Hello,

yes this has probably been a problem to many people, but I couldn't find a solution for my case.
I flashed a ROM and forgot to backup my files before, so now my whole photos and files I need are gone.

I am looking for a solution to restore deleted photos on my nexus 5. I obviously can't use generic recovery methods because, well, I don't have a sd card to pull out and plug into my computer.

is there a app / method to recover deleted files directly on the nexus (over adb?)?
Paid solutions are welcome too!

Check this thread, has a topic on OTG, which happens to allow mounting as usb storage. Might do the trick.

Hmm the OTG part is about mounting devices on the nexus. I want it the other way around, mount it on my mac and run recovery software on it.
Any ideas on that?

Yes, I am currently trying a option cross linked in that guide.
I'm taking a raw image of my data partition to my mac and will try to restore data there.

Steps taken from here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...y-yes-t1994705. Although for windows, but finding the needed tools for mac is not that big of a task.

Will report if I have any success on this
