Default Iconia A500 Ran Over what to retrieve files if possible..

So doing a favor for a friend that ran over his tablet by accident. (Dont ask)

Screen is smashed to bits of course however tablet can turn on and gets into APEX mode when plugged up to a PC. Can I retrieve pics off of internal memory or is everything all lost.

Any input is helpful thanks!!

You can maybe use read/rawdeviceread to extract the data in APX mode, and then loopback mount the filesystem on a Linux system.

If it will boot normally but the screen is smashed, then just hook it up to and HDMI monitor. Then you can move stuff to an SD card. If it also boots, you can just hook it up to a PC.

Is that a program. Where can I read more information on this?

These are arguments for nvflash.
You should be able to find some examples of how to use nvflash here on the forum.
