Desired outcome - I need to recover my 'Documents' folder from the SD Card. After I've done this, I can reset the device to the factory image on my own.
Device - 2012 Nexus 7 Wifi, currently running 4.4.2 after the push update (Build KOT49H), and I've installed WUGfresh's Nexus Root Toolkit 1.8 on my Win7 machine. - On the nexus, I had enabled developer mode and USB debugging. No clue, unfortunately, what the most recent MTP settings were. I assume they were set to "mount as disk drive" (if I'm thinking of the correct setting here).
This morning my Nexus began looping the four-circle loading screen (formerly the X) when I powered it on. I can boot into recovery mode and restart the bootloader/etc, but couldn't break the loading loop.
Here's something I seem to be stuck on - when using the toolkit, what screen should I be working from for which tool? For instance, should I leave the tablet at the loading screen, at the recovery mode ("no command") screen, the "input adb command" screen, etc - and for which utility? It seems the ones I should be making use of are either :
Backup Utilities -> Create Android Backup File
Backup Utilities -> Backup VirtualSD Card
Advanced Utilities -> Push/Pull Files*
*On this option, should my path be /system/sdcard/Documents ?
Here's what I think I'm failing to understand - I notice that, under advanced utilities -> list devices, if I check the radio box for "ADB Device on" at the basic bootloader screen (on the device), I get nothing, but checking the "Fastboot - Bootloader" box returns the proper serial #. [u]The only time I get a valid entry from "ADB Device on" -> List devices is when I'm at the command prompt line of the recovery mode screen (on the device).
Thanks for the help - II have tried browsing for similar issues, but after a night of struggling with it something's still not clicking in my brain. Pardon my exasperation and good on you all for being here.
