My old iPhone is semi-bricked. It turns off after a few minutes and doesn't get past the load screen.
It has important data on it which wasn't backed up. I'm trying to access the hard-drive's contents without resorting to a hard-drive recovery company.
Someone mentioned to me that you can use a Linux machine and the program Amarok to access the drive's contents. However, my phone wasn't jailbroken nor had the usb tethering option enabled. Plus, it had a passcode on it, so I'm guessing this method wouldn't work.
Are there any other ways you can think of to access the drives contents using a Unix machine? Is there any way to take it apart and connect a cable directly to the hard-drive?
