In the program LG PC Suite I used the option to recover upgrade errors. Now the phone (LG E975) is in Recovery mode. There are no options it only shows the following message:

Using this mode, service center can back up and recover your data. Press and hold the POWER key more than 8 seconds to reboot and continue using phone.

I searched after this software but it seems that only the LG service team has such one. I want to backup the data on my phone but I don't know what the LG PC Suite has already done.

How can I backup the data on the phone if I'm in Recovery mode?

EDIT: Solved my problem with the LG PC Suite. I don't need the backup option in recovery mode anymore. I tried a few things, but none of them worked.

  • Is the device detected by ADB (i.e. running adb devices)?

  • Yes it is detected: * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * List of devices attached LG-E975-45xxx321 recovery

  • OK, before I make it a full-fledged answer with some more details, could you try running adb backup -f dummy.ab -noapk com.foobar (replacing com.foobar with the package name of an app you know is installed on the device)? That should backup the apps data. I never tried that from recovery, hence you've got to do that :)

  • It doesn't work because the dialog isn't shown on the screen. I get the message Now unlock your device and confirm the backup operation.

  • Yuck. Was afraid of something like that. OK, next variant: Backup and restore Android Settings and Application through ADB (I love our tag-wikis: take a look at the backup tag-wiki, I should have done that earlier ;)
