Hello, need some help here!

I unlocked the bootloader without backing up any of my files... I know I'm stupid... I was too carried away by the 4.4.2 improvements to think properly...

I tried this recovery method from this thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4705&nocache=1
and another similar one

But in both cases I am stucked at the first step: adb saying device is offline in cygwin.

Adb in the android sdk works fine. I'm on 4.4.2 ota from stock 4.2.2 (rogers), managed to flash twrp and got root.

I've tried revoking usb authorization but no go.

Is there any mighty guru who can help me out? Is there some way of mounting the internal storage in windows so that i can image the whole internal storage?

Any help greatly appreciate! Don't want to lose precious photos of my family...

i have no idea what you are trying to do or what you have done.

so far this is what i have understood

you have unlocked your bootloader and install TWRP and SuperSU
so you have root access

now you are wanting to back you device up.

if this is what you are trying to do then just boot to TWRP and click on backup and make a nandroid back and move on.

with a nandroid back up if you ever install anything that stops your device from booting or cause FC all you do is boot back into TWRP and click restore and click on your nandroid back up and it will restore your phone just like it was when you created the backup.

Sorry for bad focus in writing, it was 5am+ and I was very desperate...

I had unlocked the bootloader without first doing a backup, thus the unlocking process wiped my data.
I had it unlocked so that I could flash twrp and root, which I then succeeded in doing so.

Now, I hope to recover the wiped data. As Moto X only has internal storage, I can't mount it as a drive in windows and do recovery that way.

The thread I found had a particular method of imaging the whole internal storage so that recovery could be done by loading the image in windows.
But by using that method, I can't get adb (of cygwin) to connect to my phone properly. It lists the phone but says device is offline.

Does anyone know how I can get adb (cygwin) to connect to my phone properly?

Or is there another method of recovering wiped data in internal storage?

Thanks for any help!

ok i understand what you are trying to do but your not understanding how the moto x storage system works

there is 2 storage locations on are phone. Internal and emulated external(virtual SD card)

so when you do a factory reset or go into TWRP and click Wipe it wipes the internal storage only leaving the SD card files there

but the virtual sd card only contains your Pics/Downloads/and Some App Data but it dose not have your actual phone data like installed apps and setting so forth. so when you wipe your data there is no way to recovery your system you have to start over. the only thing left is going to be downloads some app data pics and other things you moved to your phone via your PC.

What i would do is rebuild your phone the way you want it and then do a nandroid backup via TWRP and then you wont have to deal with this issue again i normally make a new nandroid backup every week and delete the old one and then i make another backup via Titanium Backup.

Thanks dray_jr, for your detailed explanation.

I just found out the adb version in cygwin is outdated. I'll try to update it and see if it could work.

I don't want to give up hope yet
