[Q] Problems with adb sideload
I'm trying to fix my brothers Verizon Galaxy Nexus. He tried to downgrade from CM 10.2 back to CM 10.1 and royally messed up his phone (he didn't know about the change in OS versions and how bad it would be). I've been trying to fix it all day.
1) Restoring from a back-up (which is back from February because he doesn't make back-ups UGH) doesn't work
2) Reflashing the 9/4 CM 10.2 nightly doesn't work
I'm trying to sideload the most recent 10.2 nightly just in case that may work, but I am running into issues. When I try to sideload the zip, I am getting the following error message:
failed to write data 'protocol fault (no status)'
When I try to just push the zip to the phone, I get an error message of "error: closed"
I really just want to be able to copy some files off of the internal memory (photos, etc.) before flashing the stock image and starting over from fresh.
Does anyone have any suggestions for what to try?
