Hi there. I have a Nexus with a cracked screen. It's completely unusable and i'm trying to pull some data off it. It's running stock firmware so there is no custom recovery installed. Any help would be appreciated.

Can you plug it in USB to PC and just copy all the data you want? I replaced the screen on mine. Bought LCD+digitizer assembly for 75 bucks on eBay. It was actually pretty easy. And I've never done it before!

No, unfortunately. I can see the tablet in the file browser but it has nothing on it. I can't put the password in if that makes a difference.

Actually putting the password would mount the internal drive... Hence, your information would be accessible. A way to remove the password / disable lock screen would work and your information would show up.
