Broken phone

Recommended Posts

Oops. I broke my phone. It just slipped out of my hand (see below)

The touchscreen doesn't work, but I have rebooted into recovery and done a backup. When my replacement arrives, I can just root it, then copy the backup over and do a restore, right? Any issues with that?

Can someone please advise where the backup file is stored, so I can pull it from adb (this is the biggest problem with no removable storage!)

Thanks

You can use adb command to copy the backup to your laptop.

You have already know about adb...

Hi

Thanks all, sorry for not replying sooner.

I got the backup off OK. I then had a problem where some permissions would not let me copy the backup onto the sdcard on my replacement phone.

I decided that in any case I would flash the CWM version of MCR, and as I already have automatic backups of my apps and data, it was easy to restore my Angry Birds progress! (and SMS)

So it's all good, and I think I prefer the CWM version anyway.
