Recovering deleted files from unrooted Galaxy Nexus Reviewed by Members Rating: 11 Vote(s) - 3 Average 100 1

In my infinite buffoonery earlier today I deleted the entire camera pictures folder from my GSM Galaxy Nexus. I had last copied images from my phone in August and have lost all pictures since then Sad

I've been looking around quite a bit to see if there's any way possible to recover those files. The two options that I've come across so far - using an Undelete app available in the Play store or using dd to take a block-level dump, both require the phone to be rooted. However my GNex is not and the official rooting process requires unlocking the bootloader which wipes the device. There was a thread on xda-developers that documented an exploit that could be used to root the GNex without unlocking the bootloader, however that exploit has been patched by Google.

Do any of you have any bright ideas on what I can do?

What's the nature of device wipe like that happens while rooting? Is recovery still possible after that making rooting still an option?

Hi,
Not going to happen, sorry. Hopefully you took advantage of google's services so everything you listed should be backed up.

thanks

If your lost photos were saved to external memory card, you can recover them by Android Data Recovery tool without unrootting. You can try to use it, know more here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/topics/mobile-devices/recover-deleted-photos-from-samsung-galaxy.html
