Touchscreen broken, need to backup files.
Hi, I'm really hoping someone can please help.
I accidentally dropped my 2012 Nexus 7 and now the touchscreen won't work. I am trying to backup the data. The tablet turns on and my PC recognizes it when I plug it in via USB. However because I have a passcode on the lockscreen Windows won't show the files on the tablet until I unlock the screen. This is no doubt a security feature. Is there any way possible to either bypass the lockscreen or access my data another way?
I tried using SkipSoft Android Toolkit but for every option I select it says "Waiting for USB debugging to be enabled".
2012 Nexus 7
Android 4.4.x (Can't remember if it was running 4.4.1 or 4.4.2).
Everything is stock, no root.
Bootloader version: 4.23
The problem is that USB debugging is not enabled on the device, so I cannot use adb. Is there any way around this?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
