    You cannot access your phone unless you can input your Gmail credentials, period.
    No workarounds

    you can't command usb debugging thru adb. there is no command for it. have you tried a forget password with google? plus you should have been using goggle photos. i never have to worry about my photos as they are backed up on the cloud. i can even buy a new phone, sign in to my google account and all my photos will be on my phone.

    so i'm confused. can you boot the phone up? if the phone is in a bootloop then you will not even get a chance to log into your account. wasn this a random event?

    MTP drivers won't help as you have to boot into android and unlock the phone before you can use MTP, and you can't boot it.

    ADB can't enable USB debugging because ADB (Android Debug Bridge) is USB debugging: you can't use ADB for anything unless USB debugging has been enabled. Plus ADB requires a process running on the phone to handle the ADB commands, so you have to be able to boot the phone to use ADB.

    If you had a custom recovery you could run ADB from recovery mode, but the stock recovery won't have an adb daemon so unless the phone has been rooted this isn't an option either.

    So I'd say that attempting to recover your Google password would be the best bet, except that from what you say the phone doesn't boot (gets stuck on carrier logo) so I don't think that will help either. If you were trying to get the phone working again I'd say try a factory reset to see whether that fixes it or whether it's a hardware issue, but of course that would delete the data you are trying to recover (4.1.2 pre-dates encrypted storage being the default, but data recovery from an android phone is a dicey process even so, so I'd keep this as a last resort).

    What is the exact device, Carrier & Model? Because if there is a TWRP or CWM, you can possibly flash that with adb and boot the recovery.. go from there

    Too bad you didn't have Google photos and contacts running on your device.
    Nothing would be lost.
    Consider them moving forward....

    is the phone rooted? you would need to root the phone and install a custom recovery (twrp being one of them).....but to do all that you will need adb.

    Ok.. go here , you'll find the TWRP involved but you'll also need adb and the correlating ODIN program designed for your phone. I'm not really a Samsung guy so i just know some generalities involved with it. But basically ODIN program allows Windows PC interaction with Sammy devices, which is then used to install TWRP (or the whole stock FirmWares). When that's done, you can directly boot into TWRP and get 100% access to both internal and external storage, plus flash a newer custom OS if ya like.. hopefully you'll be able to access the stuff ya need from there and make whatever decisions needed. But by all means, retrieve all files needed from device before flashing any ROMs. :specsdroid:

    I do remember Philz Touch recoveries.. had some on my ZTE Warp Sequent & Warp 4g. They're pretty good. Shouldn't be a problem using the guide you linked, from what I can see. Even has the correct Odin version for your phone, good find! Yes, simply boot into the CWM/Philz Touch and you should certainly have access to everything. If ya don't like Philz Touch, you can use the same methods for TWRP. That info seems legit so far, certainly worth trying.

    Nah! Rooting is Totally your option and certainly not required (Root can also break banking apps and Snapchat stuff). ;) You can even run custom ROMs without Root and still be ok, nothing wrong with just using TWRP/CWM for your recovery purposes.

    • Yes, choose recovery.
    • You're just basically having trouble accessing recovery mode from device, might take some trial & error to just get the button combos correct they need all be pressed simultaneously and held, I think. All else fails, use same process for installing TWRP & try again..
    • Yes, you should/will have total access to all data partitions for everything. It's been soooooo long since I've dealt with JB Android OS but I think the pictures/vids will either be in an "Android" named folder or one named "DCIM".

    TBH, I wouldn't know for sure as I didn't venture into any Samsung devices. I'd think the guide would be correct..
