    Ok guys, I have a little situation here. I have the apk's for 3.11 and 3.65, not yet 3.73. However, my phone was dropped in water and the touch screen doesn't work anymore. I have a replacement phone but I want to back up my phone the way it is before I swap phones. Unfortunately, I was able to get into SS using 3.65 but that is mostly a touch screen app now. I believe 3.11 was still able to be navigated via the arrow keys? However, there's no way of rebooting into SS in 3.11.

    You guys have any way of me getting into a recovery that will allow me to back up my phone now using only the arrow keys on the physical keyboard? Or any other solution?

    Thanks!
