Recovering internal memory on SGS2 (CWM, not root, boot to recovery only)

Recommended Posts

I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 (i9100), which stopped booting into the normal OS. I have no idea why - one morning it turned itself off, and when I started it, it went as far as the "Samsung" screen, and just hangs.

 

I have pictures on the "internal" SD card (flash memory), which I would like to recover.

 

I can boot into recovery, and have installed the latest version of CWM touch, which allows me to mount both the internal and external sdcard. I can do a "browse for update" on both internal and external sdcard, and all the files I want are there. However, even when internal sdcard is mounted, I cannot access it with adb, presumably because I don't have root.

 

Just to see what I can do without root, I used CWM allowed me to backup the system, but because the backup is written to the internal card, I cannot check whether it's worked. However, it is taking about 1.5GB of space on the internal card, so I assume it must have backed up something.

 

Any ideas? Could I write a script that would copy the contents of the internal sd card to the external sd card, without root?

If I rooted the phone, would I loose the content on the internal sd card? (I have looked into rooting, but only with heimdall so far, and I could not get it to recognise the phone on linux or OS X.)

 

Any thoughts and suggestions will be much appreciated! Thanks!

Any lost android phone data is not overwritten can be recovered. When data lost ,you need not to add some data on computer . Otherwise, the missing data could not be restored. In the case, you need to use some data recovery software. Samsung Data Recovery software can help recover Samsung Galaxy S2 internal memory deleted data quickly and safely.

I just use a Samsung data recovery software access lost files on the Samsung phone, I think you can try the solution to recover your internal memory files simply.

Firstly connect the device with computer via usb cable and detect the phone quickly, then you can preview the deleted files and choose the ones to recover on your S2 phone.
