Help finding hidden folders on GS3 using ubuntu
My screen is completely out on my old Galaxy S3 and I have several folders that are hidden on its internal storage using a '.' at the beginning of the folder's name. I made a bootable usb drive with ubuntu on it (I natively run Windows 8), but I knew that only ubuntu or the like would let me find folders that are hidden this way.
However, despite booting up ubuntu, and connecting the phone to the computer, I cannot find the folders. Any help?
I'm not able to see anything on the GS3 screen, btw.

Re: Help finding hidden folders on GS3 using ubuntu
Just realized that I wasn't logged in when I posted that; the phone is on, and there is no password/pin/security on the screen. The capacitive touch doesn't work, either, so it's no big deal. I can find all the regular files and folders, but any folder starting with '.' (for ex: .abc) can't be found, and that's with having selected to see hidden files.
