So my mother in law used to have an Huawei ideos X3 (U8510) and due to an unfortunate event the screen of her smartphone got smashed. That wouln't be a big issue if it wasn't for the fact that she wasn't saving her contacts in the cloud on google servers, she was saving them only on the phone.
Since her screen is unresponsible to touches, I can't get her contacts into the google cloud.
I gave her my old Samsung Galaxy S with CyanogenMod but I can't get her contacts over there.
What I did so far is, root the Huawei phone through adk to gain access to all files and databases. So far so good. I extracted the database with the contacts (contacts2.db) and overwrote the contacts2.db from the Galaxy S, which resulted into major force closes when opening the contacts app.
Any other suggestions? She needs her contacts badly.
