My wife has/had a Sony Xperia which the screen smashed. It had a few months worth of photos of the kids on it, which I would very much like to recover, but I can't spend several hundred dollars sending it away for recovery.
I seem to remember it had some issues charging prior to getting smashed which makes me think it might be related to this. It shows up in thunar under Devices, as 'F8332', but it won't mount, I think it might drop in and out, so I hope it's not a hardware issue which will be a total road block. I can run
dmseg if anyone is interested. I can see it when I run
lsusb and when I run
$ adb shell I get "error: no devices/emulators found".
At this point I should note, I am not a smartphone person and I have never run adb before this fiasco and didn't even know what mtp was. Further, when I run `mtp-detect' I get:
libmtp version: 1.1.16 Listing raw device(s) Device 0 (VID=0fce and PID=01e7) is a SONY XPeria XZ MTP. Found 1 device(s): SONY: XPeria XZ MTP (0fce:01e7) @ bus 2, dev 4 Attempting to connect device(s) PTP_ERROR_IO: failed to open session, trying again after resetting USB interface LIBMTP libusb: Attempt to reset device LIBMTP PANIC: failed to open session on second attempt Unable to open raw device 0 OK.
Thanks in advance!
