I'm very stuck in solving this problem (from more that one year!).

I started accidentally the hard reset of my Huawei P8 lite. Luckily I've saved all my photos and document on my SD. The problem is that I had important informations on my memos. I didn't use that phone more to not overwrite data. I explore the features of many software recovey in the market, but nobody has the memos recovery functionality.

I would like to know if it could be possible to recover my memos (only that!) in a safe way, without using external softwares, using Windows or Linux environment (and, if is possible, what is in your opinion the best method to unlock the bootloader before, because I was not even able to do that).

[I am a new one in the community, so tell me kindly if I'm not respecting some rule]

Thank you very much

  • Please explain “run the bootloader before”. – Irfan Latif May 8 '20 at 14:30
  • Usually all recent Android devices come with enabled device encryption by default. Performing a factory reset deletes the used encryption key and hence data recovery is usually impossible. – Robert May 8 '20 at 14:56
  • @IrfanLatif Sorry, I'd mean to unlock the bootloader – AndreaL May 8 '20 at 17:42
  • @Robert But why can I recover photos from the internal memory of the device? (I tried with Wondershare doc. phone" and with "Android data recovery") – AndreaL May 8 '20 at 17:46
  • I was talking about recent devices. Did not notice that we are talking about an ancient device here, released 2015 Android 5 or 6 installed). Your phone is very old and I assume has multiple vulnerabilities. Those data recovery tools use one of the vulnerabilities to gain root access (any other app could do the same) and to search for recoverable files. – Robert May 8 '20 at 17:54
