I'm one of the lucky few that had internal sd wiped during the process of upgrading from NB4 to NE6.
Yes, totally my fault, as I should have backed up my internal. But I didn't.
To compound it, my nandroid backed up to internal rather than external sd (DOHHH).
Needless to say, I haven't written over the wiped internal, and I know there's a way to recover the deleted files (and nandroid)-- I just haven't done it on the Note 3 yet.
There are multiple guides out there on recovering internal storage by using cygwin, creating a raw image of the internal, mounting it as a drive, and using software like recuva. This is the guide I'm loosely following, however, our data block is in a different location. I believe 25, from what I can tell. This is the guide I'm using right now.
My Desperate Questions
- Has anyone been able to recover their wiped internal storage on the Note 3, specifically?
- Is our data partition at dev/block/mmcblk0p25 ?
- Does anyone recommend any other methods of doing this?
Any help totally appreciated.
Where I am now:
I've been running Recuva for the past 4 hours which apparently doesn't recognize a drive connected through MTP. I tried something tricky and it appears to be running. But, given the status it reports (pretty much nothing), it could just be scanning my computer.
Concurrently, I'm trying the guide I linked up there. I have root, and busybox installed (to system/bin), but adb keeps disconnecting when I get to the "adb forward tcp:5555 tcp:5555" step, and device keeps going offline.
