Ensure device is off
  • Hold vol down + Power until you feel vibration
  • Press vol up twice
  • Press power (Will feel another vibration)
  • Connect USB
  • run adb devices should see something like:

Code:
H:\>adb devices
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
03105ef70935976465        recovery

Maybe, ROM settings / USB debugging / Root dependent potentially though

How do you know whether the phone is turned on or not? Notification sounds work? Try what @kunaltyagii suggested.

Yes it will. That's an excellent idea as long he has USB debugging enabled.

OP, after you get the drivers and/or sdk set up simply type:

Code:
adb devices
If you see a serial number your good. Proceed to pull the entire sdcard.

If you don't see the serial number look up everything you can related to your OS and adb.
Yep, still around. You still have the rocket?

Thanks a bunch! I dont think my hardware keys are working properly. I turned my phone off by disconencting the battery conenctions. I tried booting into recovery but my phone turned on normally instead. I tried "adb devices" and luckily it showed my serial number followed by "device". I just randomly tried "adb pull sdcard/music" and it worked! So now I have access to all my files. Could you guys post some links to advanced push and pull commands? I dont want to pull everything, I want my folder trees so that I can only take out the important stuff.

Thanks again! I wouldn't have gotten anywhere without this!


New problem: I did all that on my friends pc which has windows 7 and all the Nexus 5 drivers installed. I myself have a windows 8.1 laptop and after one of the recent updates my phone stopped showing. I tried Wugfresh's Nexus root toolkit but I didn't get anywhere. Help? XP

There aren't really any advanced adb push or pull commands.

Regards to new problem see link in signature. Read section 1b.

On windows 8.1 I had to do 1b1 and 1b2 today

I just uninstalled my previous drivers, updated windows and then reconnected my phone. Surprisingly the phone started showing! I had already done 1B1 earlier today. Thanks a lot guys. Everything has been solved.

EDIT: I tried "adb pull sdcard/folder" and only the subfolders of that folder got copied, the files inside that folder didn't. Also, it said "no such directory exists" halfway through.
