In an accident I got my Samsung Galaxy S3 broken. Mobile is turn on but screen is not working. I want some very important data from internal storage. Is there anyway to recover that data?

  • You can simply connect it to PC and transfer files via USB (MTP mode)? – Jaskaranbir Singh Jun 15 '15 at 14:56
  • This won't work if the device is locked. – LJD200 Jun 15 '15 at 16:29
  • How can I connect to MTP mode when screen is not displaying? – Abdullah Jun 17 '15 at 11:49

If Developer Settings are enabled and the device is rooted, you can plug the device into your computer via USB and use androidscreencast to control the device and upload the files to an online storage service such as Google Drive before downloading the files on your computer.

  • Developer Setting ( Debugging Mode) ?? – Abdullah Jun 17 '15 at 11:51
  • Sorry, yes: by "Developer Settings" I meant USB Debugging. Even if the device is not rooted, you can still use the computer to see your device's display. – LJD200 Jun 17 '15 at 12:14
  • and what about if debugging mode is not enable but phone is rooted? – Abdullah Jun 18 '15 at 23:11
  • Then you're pretty much out of options, I'm afraid... – LJD200 Jun 19 '15 at 6:39

If your computer can still recognize your phone when you plug it in, you can use this android file manager to export the data from your phone to computer.
