[Q] [Help] Broken screen - need to recover pictures
Can some please help me to recover photos from my broken S3? I want to download them to PC and then delete before I give it to repair.
My Galaxy S3 dropped, there is a small crack visible in the corner and the screen is completely black. Phone turns on/off (leds do flash), also when I press main button the 'menu' and 'back' buttons flash. Screen does not display anything and I'm not able to tell if the touch input works.
What I've already tried:
1. Connecting to PC - device is visible but I can't enter internal storage
2. Samsung Kies - does not work as the device is locked and can't unlock it (possible because touch input is broken). Also I can't use 'unlock' option on Samsung page as I can't activate sim card.
3. GALAXY S3 UNIFIED TOOLKIT skipsoft.net/?page_id=213 - does not work, probably because the sdk option is not enabled on S3
I can't tell if it's connecting to wifi - on router there is one device identifying as unknown, probably it's S3.
I've found something about recovery/download mode but don't know how to use it to recover photos (if possible at all).
I would really appreciate any help as I have a lot of photos on my S3.
