I'm experiencing a Restart Loop problem so I cannot turn my phone on. Can I still use ADB Tool to PULL all my Phone Memory data from my phone and paste it into a folder on my PC?

Post Cannot access adb in command terminal

I am facing an issue. I cannot access adb through the android terminal and Command prompt. My OS in tablet has blown off. I cannot access tablet content in my laptop. When I tried to write "adb shell" and then I wrote "su", I get this error:

/sbin/sh su: not found

I tried using adb push command and it gave me error:
/sbin/sh adb: not found

I don't have external micro sd card but I heard that it is possible to push files through adb.

Any idea what could be the problem?
Any sort of help would be appreciated.

To install Nook Tablet USB and ADB drivers correctly please watch the following video:
1. Windows
2. Ubuntu Linux

SECOND: In order to use "adb remount" you need to install [App]: ADB Root Hijack [ADB Runs as Root now] by Indirect


*All the examples refers to /data/app path you can change to /system/app or any other path you need in your NOOK tablet

- Plug your Nook tablet to your computer
- Open a CMD terminal on Windows:
Start>>run>> type cmd>> click OK (WinXP)
Start>> in search box type cmd>> right click Run as Administrator (Win7)
- Once opened type:

*Let's say your adb tools are in C:\nookroot folder

Installing an Aplication .apk

Put the .apk file into C:\nookroot folder and type

Select Code
adb install appname.apk

Uninstalling an Aplication

There is an uninstall adb commans that always shows failure!!!
So we are going to use Adb Shell:

Select Code
adb shell
# cd data/app
# ls
# rm -r appname.apk
# ls                  (You will not find this application, you just removed it!)
Ctrl+c to exit shell mode

Push & Pull commands


Select Code
adb pull /data/app/appname.apk

If you want to PULL all the files located in a folder then:

Select Code
adb pull /data/app test
to pull all the .apk's located /data/app and save them into a folder that it will create in C:\nookroot named test


Select Code
adb push appname.apk /data/app
If you want to PUSH all the files located in a folder then:

Select Code
adb push test /data/app
to push all the .apk's located in C:\nookroot\test folder to /data/app

Close ADB

Select Code
adb reboot    (to reboot your Nook Tablet)
adb kill-server     (to stop adb server)
adb, shell, tools
