[Q] Photoalbum wiped and missing - restore?
As the topic says, somehow all my camera photos are missing from the internal memory of my Xperia Z (10.3.1.A.0.244). I don't know how this happened, either it happened spontaneously after video recording or I did it accidentally when I tried to remove a different folder when connected to a Mac (im not used to Macs).
I am trying to find a way to restore the deleted files, but it only appears in Win as a MTP device, which can not be detected by recovery softwares.
It seems like the only way out is rooting the phone before I can restore any file according to this
guide. However to root my Xperia Z I first have to flash it according to this
thread. If I flash it, will I still be able to recover any information from it, such as my lost photos?
Would be very grateful for any advice!!
