Hi I really need help on this one, my Samsung j1 has a broken screen, it's just blank and gives no visual. When I connect it via USB my laptop recognizes it, but I can't access the data because I have a pattern lock on the screen (which is needed to unlock the phone before the computer allows access), and the screen is non-responsive to touch. Can anyone suggest any software or anything that'll help me recover my previous data? Please help. USB debugging isn't activated.

  • Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! Looks like you've found the perfect tags for your question -- but might have missed the fact that our tags often also have wikis attached to them. Have you already checked with the "Data Recovery" section of our broken-screen tag-wiki? Or with our data-recovery tag-wiki? I bet you'll find your answer in the former.
