Smile How to recover deleted Pictures and files off your INTERNAL memory on SG3

This is a Tutorial for recovering unwanted deletion of files in the INTERNAL MEMORY of your Samsung Galaxy S3
I have finally finished the video to tribute War Tickler's thread!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HomqBx0J0e8

DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR A BRICKED S3. IF YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THE TUTORIAL PROPERLY YOU SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM. ROOT AND RECOVER MEMORY FROM YOUR PHONE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Make sure your Computer Hard Drive has Sufficient Space:
If your Galaxy S3 is 16GB have at least 20GB of space on your Computer HARDDRIVE.
If your Galaxy S3 is 32GB have at least 50GB of space on your Computer HARDDRIVE.

It might have something to do with the mmcblk0p12 code. Try using 15 or 16 at the end of the code to let your computer find the right user memory block because different phones have different placement of code.

Thumbs up New recovery software

Deleted or lost files are not necessarily gone forever. If you have accidently deleted some files or cannot access your files because of a hard drive issue, File Recovery can help you. This file recovery software can easily recover deleted files and restore lost files if they have not been written over. Most files that appear to be lost actually still exist; only the pathway to their locations on the hard drive have been lost.

The newest version supports RW2 file types and has an enhanced gallery view. File Recovery has also added text filtering, validation checks, a customizable interface and a new preview window. Perhaps the most valuable addition is the ability to create disk images at the sector level. Using this tool, you can create a copy of a damaged sector to work with, which is much safer than working directly with the damaged sector on the physical disk.

You can download this software here: hetmanrecovery.com

File Recovery Features:
• Recover files even if emptied from the Recycle Bin
• File recovery after accidental format, even if you have reinstalled Windows.
• Disk recovery after a hard disk crash
• Get back files after a partitioning error
• Get data back from RAW hard drives
• Recover documents, photos, video music and email.
• Recover from hard drive, camera card, USB, Zip, floppy disk or other media

The apps mentioned in the previous couple of posts are all 'paid for apps' and don't mention being able to recover files from the phones internal memory. They only seem to be capable of working on drives can be mounted such as the MicroSD cards in the mentioned devices. Jelly bean phones connect via MTP so pretty sure they won't work on the internal memory of the likes of the S3 or S4.
The only tried and tested method (for the internal memory) seems to be the one in the OP.
Thanks OP for the video, makes it easier to follow Wartickler's instructions.

Default Re: How to recover deleted pictures

I notice that there are many free tools can be used to recovering deleted pictures and files, such as PhotoRec, TestDisk and Recuva. They are 100% free that works for such use.
Here is a tutorial which tells the details how to undelete photo files.
