transfer data from broken android to pc

Recommended Posts

my android Huawei phone is broken and i want to transfer all its data to

my laptop . When I connected my broken phone in the laptop USB port and

executed the adb devices command , I got empty devices . Moreover , My

phone is not shown in the device manager . There is no trace of yellow

mark . my OS is windows 7 64 bit . I do not know if the USB debugging

option is enabled in my broken phone as I cannot look at it because my

phone is broken and therefore , I cannot enable it if it is disabled

This is what I did :

1- I put my broken phone in "BOOT AND RESCUE MODE "

2- I connected it to my laptop

the result is that I could see it in the device manager with such a name :

"Android Bootloader Interface" . However , when I executed the command

adb device again I got again empty device . So what I did is using one

of the solutions in this page which is :

Quick guide: Connect your device with Android Debugging enabled to your PC

Open Device Manager of Windows from System Properties.

Your device should appear under 'Other devices' listed as something like 'Android ADB Interface' or 'Android Phone' or similar. Right click that and click on 'Update Driver Software...'

Select 'Browse my computer for driver software'

Select 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'

Double-click 'Show all devices'

Press the 'Have disk' button

Browse and navigate to [wherever your SDK has been installed]\google-usb_driver and select android_winusb.inf

Select 'Android ADB Interface' from the list of device types.

Press the 'Yes' button

Press the 'Install' button

Press the 'Close' button

Now you've got the ADB driver set up correctly. Reconnect your device if it doesn't recognize it already.

However , my phone was not found on my laptop , not in the device manager

too . So I guess the USB DEBUGGING option on my broken phone is disabled

I looked at the solutions suggested in those pages too :

Android device does not show up in adb list

"adb devices" shows empty list

ADB No Devices Found


and other pages in google from other websites but unfortunately , none of

them helped me . . I am very stuck and have no idea what to do .

This is not really a tech support forum, most of us just write code, so I'm not sure if you will find answers here.
