My Nexus 4 is recognized by ./adb devices when connected via USB. Also USB debugging is enabled. Unfortunately the device isn't rooted so pulling the contacts db file doesn't work as I don't have access to the appropriate directories (I think). How can I retrieve my contacts in this situation?

Note I never synced my contacts with Google.

if you got airdroid working you can use your pc screen.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sand.airdroid

you can get the app installed through google play online.

is your screen broken meaning you cant see it, or it also doesnt accept input?

  • Thanks for the info. My screen was broken and would not respond to touch events. However the display still works. The solution I went w/ was issuing adb commands to open the contacts app, scroll up/down, view contact etc and just wrote down the info for each contact. Dec 8, 2013 at 23:08
