My S3 I9300 screen is completely broken (blank) and I want to recover my photos. I can turn on the phone and it makes all the usual noises therefore indicating that it is working.

I have downloaded the Unified Toolkit from here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1703488

But it seems that I need USB Debugging turned on for me to do anything with the phone - but this is impossible without a working screen...

I can blindly boot the handset into recovery mode - this results in Windows recognising the device (a device with no folders appears in explorer), and so does the Unified Toolkit (serial number is displayed).

Does anyone have any suggestions about how I can proceed? Are there any other tools that I can use? Is it possible to turn on USB debugging some other way?

Cheers

The unified toolkit will handle adb pull files. Option 11 in main menu if I'm not mistaken

Well, maybe you can try pull out the memory card from you S3 I9300 phone, and then recover files from memory card.

The whole point is that they're on the internal memory.

If your phone has a broken screen, you may try to recover data from phone with this tutorial: Recover data from phone whose screen is broken
