So I have a client (I give advice/fix phones for my friends/family...) that has broken his screen of his Motorola Droid 1. I have not gotten a hold of the phone, but I am betting that he never rooted the phone let alone did much Syncing to Google so I will need to back up his SMS's, MMS's, Contacts, and what ever else he wants to the SD Card or computer without any screen touching (or the ability to be able to see the screen on the computer without the requirement of rooting). Heck I am not even sure if the screen's lcd is out and the touch still works (if that is the case, I should be able to get intto Debugging mode...)
But on the chance it isn't, I am wondering if:
- there is a way to ADB Push (or something) the phone into Debugging Mode
- there is a way to make the phone dump/copy the memory tot he computer/sd card
- there is a way to push and install an application that will allow the phone to just run the app and be fit and ready to go? (but this brings back hwo to get debugging mode on the phone without touching the screen...)
- I would be able to push z4root to the phone, run it, push Android VNC Server tot he phone and then run a VNC Client on the computer to do commands (but then again, there is no debugging mode to connect the phone to the computer...)
I Have used z4root before on the Droid 2...
I know I am asking a lot of information for not even having the phone on hand, but I was willing to test any way possible on my MotoDroid 2, Eris, or Ally and see if I can't get something to work to be able to help him out.
Thank You Very Much For Taking The Time To Read This Post,
