I have an YU Yuphoria (5010) running on stock rom cm12 which it came with and was working perfectly until yesterday I rebooted the device. Now when it powers up it goes on a boot loop.

I have some photos of my newborn cousin in it which i really need.

My problems are as follows:

  1. USB debugging not enabled. Which means my phone is not detected by adb and I can't mount or pull data from my phone through adb commands.
  2. No custom recovery has been installed and the phone is not rooted. So no way to mount internal storage through CWM or TWRP as the don't exist.
  3. Fastboot works fine but no option to access internal storage from it and unlocking bootloader will wipe all my data.

I tried all sorts of solutions but nothing worked because of problem 1 and 2. I really need those photos. Please help me out

Thanks

  • Raw idea: There seems to be TWRP for this device. Extract the .img file and boot (not flash!) it: fastboot boot twrp.img. That doesn't install it on the device, but uses the image as kind of "live disk" (it's gone when you reboot the device). TWRP comes with built-in ADB enabled, so while it's booted you'd have full root access to the device – if it works. Worth a try. Please report back whether you succeeded with that. – Izzy Aug 2 '16 at 12:43

  • I do have an option of adb sideload will that work? – hxri Aug 2 '16 at 13:33

    @Izzy Thanks for your support but a miracle happened which I cannot figure out how. I decided to press wipe phone data from the stock recovery and it successfully booted up. Then i checked gallery and there was no photos in it which was obvious. then i plugged the phone to my computer and selected the file transfer mode on my phone. Then the internal memory shows up on my PC and I opened it up and saw the unexpected. All the files and folders including the app data was there as it is. I couldn't believe what i was seeing. It had all the photos that i wanted and some that i deleted long back. – hxri Aug 3 '16 at 15:02

    Glad to read that, Hari! May I suggest you post that as answer (and accept that answer afterwards) – so other folks with a similar issue see there's a possible solution? Thanks! – Izzy Aug 3 '16 at 15:11
