Recover data from FP2 with dead screen

Hello all

My FP2 display is now dead.
The screen remains dark, I tried with a well functioning friends screen and it doesn’t even light up with my phone.
So I guess the display driver itself in the mainboard is dead…
The phone itelf seems to work well though, I can hear notifications.

I was wondering if I could retrieve the data from the phone without screen ? That is, only from USB.

Fastboot doesn’t allow pulling data, only pushing.

So I’m thinking of ADB. Can I connect to adb without the screen ?
I suppose it will ask permission from the touch screen.
Or does TWRP allow connecting to ADB without any touch ?

I would hope to be able to dump the data partition and mount it on my PC.


If you made ADB work before with the phone and the computer you would use now and told the phone to remember the authorisation for this computer, then it’s likely that ADB would work when Android is booted.

Else this here could help …

Thanks for the advice. I will try this !

For now on, I think it stayed off for too long, I can’t manage to charge it.

The LED is blinking red for few seconds, and it’s registering as a Qualcomm HID device. Then it shuts down.

I’ll keep trying.

He tried this already:

But as far as I remember, there was a Firmware/Screen hardware version incompatibility.

@gabs: Your withdrawal made my answer obsolete :wink:.

After many retries, i managed to have the phone charge a bit.

The OS did not give access to the files via MTP or ADB.
But by booting TWRP from fastboot, I could connect to ADB and dump my data partition to my PC.

Now my photos and files are safe :slight_smile:
