My nexus 5's screen just went black :( ... In the past days I noticed a bit of flickering and was planning to do a full phone backup, but didn't get to it on time.
Luckily, I removed the passcode (just in case) and that allowed me to connect the phone to my mac and back up basically everything using Android File Transfer.
The only thing I haven't got to are the text messages and images stored in the Hangouts app. I know I could use something like this, bud sadly my phone's screen is completely black.
Is there a way to get all of the texts and images directly to my mac using Android File Transfer?
I found online a bunch of links (listed below), but they all seem to require to install a program on the mac (which I most definitively do not want to do):
