I'm trying to recover data (contacts mostly) from an old phone (Xperia Neo V) that was running Android 2.3.4 and so far I managed to dd the data partition via adb. The partition is YAFFS one. I would like to mount it to be able to run Recuva or testdisk over it and see if I can rescue anything that way.
Honestly, I'm not even too sure if it was possible to properly create the YAFFS partition with dd. But assuming that the process went well, how do I mount the image? I can't seem to be able to do that nor have a clue how to verify if the 420 MB file I got is a proper partition image.
Did you try something similar in the past, or maybe you have experience with this sort of stuff to guide me into the right direction?
I will greatly appreciate your help, I'm sort of desperate here, and very tired so far.
