Yesterday my noble Galaxy Nexus (maguro) sacrificed itself to save me when I fell from my mountain bike.
I would like to copy the data to my computer. What is good: the screen and the sim card is broken, but the rest of the phone seems to be still working.
When I plug in the phone on my Linux (Debian) computer, it is detected as multimedia device. However, I cannot access the data, as I would need to unlock the screen (which is broken).
Alternatively, I tried to access the phone using the adb-tools. However, the device is not listed:
$ ./adb devices List of devices attached $
I can see my phone in lsusb:
$ lsusb ... Bus 006 Device 002: ID 04e8:685c Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-I9250 Phone [Galaxy Nexus] ...
I tried some different stuff, like generating a
/etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules file, but this didn't help.
I also tried to boot the phone to the bootloader, but I didn't succeed - maybe the connection to the volume buttons is broken.
