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- 
downloading 'boot.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
After this
./adb devices
returns an empty list. I also tried
./fastboot reboot
./fastboot reboot-bootloader
after that, but both commands get stuck.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

are you positive that the screen doesnt work at all? you could try to navigate the menus "blind" and enable debugging?
