Pixel 4a froze and bricked two days ago. Did not modify it in any way, had it for 2 days. Under warranty, so replacement is on the way. I just want to get the files off of it, no need to actually recover the phone. Is this possible?

I can see it is in EDL mode, I downloaded the Qualcomm Drivers and QPST. I am a total n00b, so I don't have any idea of what to do.

None of the button combinations worked, I have tried them all. Draining the battery hasn't worked. Charging it hasn't worked. It is not in USB debugging mode (if that matters).

Any help or advice?

Thanks in advance

No way to get those, that I know of.
