I've just FR my phone and am selling it. My screen is broken so I can't get past the activation page. So I'm unable to confirm.

I ask this because for some of reason, my Nexus 4(rooted ) did not erase the photos. I wiped my nexus thru the settings menu. Is this a root feature? Not deleting photos?

My g2 was wiped from hardware buttons. I tried to connect to my computer but it will only download charge only driver and I manually downloaded drivers but it will not show up on my computer under lg g2.

This is a rooted phone and currently on startup screen.

If the digitizer is damaged as it sounds since you can't get past activation. You won't be able to change the phone to mtp as it is initially on charge only.

If you're just trying to get your photos gone, and it's rooted. Perhaps you have a custom recovery, and you can use the buttons on the back to put it into usb mode and proceed to delete your files from your pc? Maybe I just misinterpreted.

I actually always connect my phone with TeamViewer, in case my digitizer ever breaks.
