    Hello All

    So I dropped my phone today and as I have insurance a new one gets delivered tomorrow but they collect the old one.
    My issue is as standard debugging isn't turned on, I have tried various tips and tricks from online sources to access the phone using adb, however even in fastboot which i'm certain it is in I can't get the server to list it as an active device so I can't get a full backup and restore to factory settings.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on how to do either of the following (bearing in mind the screen is dead and only partially visible:

    1. retrieve backup (with a magic piece of software ) you know the kind, the one they use in all those csi/hacker tv shows
    2 just absolutely brick it

    It's so annoying that i can't even metasploit my way in as i can't touch it to receive an apk, i cant remote in as it still requires some user interface.

    look forward to responses if any, if not thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Joe
