[Q] Xperia Go: backup with broken screen.
I broke the screen of my Xperia Go completely. My problem is that I have some very important pictures on my phone, which I would like to back up.
Unfortunately I did not activate usb-debugging before, so pulling the files with adb will not work.
I managed to unlock the bootloader over command-line and booting the phone into fastboot mode.
I read somewhere that you can boot a recovery image(with adb enabled) in fastboot mode and connect to your device this way.
Unfortunately this did not work out for me. After I load clockworkmod recovery into the bootloader I'm not able to connect via adb.
The output is:
./fastboot boot ~/Downloads/recovery-clockwork-22.214.171.124-u8951-R3.img
(bootloader) USB download speed was 17900kB/s
OKAY [ 0.467s]
(bootloader) Download buffer format: boot IMG
OKAY [ 0.022s]
finished. total time: 0.489s
returns an empty list. I also tried
after that, but both commands get stuck.
Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
