Let me play around with it a little more and see if I can figure it out.

Edit, let's backup a little bit. Do you have a custom recovery or are you on stock? If it's custom which one?

Edit, sorry man, the best I can do is use adb pull. But that requires you to know specifically where and what the file name is. And you have to do that for every file you want. Seems adb backup only works if you're booted normally and not in recovery.

Thanks for trying to help man!

I'm on cwm recovery.

I tried adb pull to copy all the stuff on my phone using the command "adb pull /" but the files copied did not include my pics or any personal media etc.

What would be the exact location of my pics inside the phone?? Also maybe it's not working because the sdcard is not mounted?

Have you tried adb pull /sdcard

That should get you everything on it. It'll take a long time

You're using cwm aren't you? Try adb pull /data/media. Or adb pull /data/media/0. Cwm is messed up on how it handles the file structure

Neither work! It would be massively helpful if you could go to a camera picture on your phone and lookup where it is actually stored? Then hopefully it will be the same on mine.

We tried that already. It's in /sdcard/DCIM/Camera

I'm making progress! managed to get all my app data off the phone.

Originally when I did adb pull /data, it returned "0 files pulled, 0 files skipped".

Then I went into adb shell and mounted /data, exited adb shell, did the pull again and it worked!

So I'm close... all I need to know is the specific location of my pictures in the file system and I can do it.
