Hello everyone!

I have a nexus 7 (the first one) and I have used it for the longest time I can remember.

Recently, while I was in the hospital, a nurse dropped it and bam, the screen shattered. The touchscreen works but the glass is gone.

I can use the bottom left corner of the screen but about 60% of the upper screen is non-responsive to touch thanks to the glass. I have a lot of photos, memos, etc, on the nexus that I would like to recover but thanks to the notorious problem of the MTP not being detectable, I simply cannot extract any of the valuable data. I used to use wifi transfer but since I cannot connect to wifi (Upper part of screen is non-responsive), I simply cannot transfer any data either.

I have tried to look for replacement glass panels but here in Korea, it seems nobody really uses Nexus' brand devices and I simply could not find an Asus center that could fix this.

Is there any other method that I can use to extract the data? Seems recovery is useless because I am simply shown a "No Command" with a dead android on top whenever I try. I would love to simply let my tablet die in peace but the memories on this device is simply too valuable to give up on. Any method is welcome.

Try a USB keyboard or mouse.

Or use Adb to transfer the files. That could work too hopefully.

Or Dropbox or similar. Tho, you need WiFi obviously.
