    Hey guys I need some help. I dropped my phone a few days ago and my screen started slowly turning blue until it stopped showing anything at all. I have Tmobile sending me a refurbished replacement but I hadn't backed up my apps for quite a while.

    I have a mhl adapter but it sucks,I guess buying a $10 adapter from Amazon was a bad idea, it works on occasion but it only mirrors for about a minute before it loses connection.

    I have debugging and unknown sources on so I can try to use ******** but it won't recognize the phone, I was able to download the file it requires to my phone while the mhl adapter was working but for some reason it still won't recognize it, any advice is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance and happy new year everyone.

    Hi SVECobraR. Is your phone completely dead or is the screen just not working? If the digitizer still works, something you might try is Droid@Screen. It will allow you to see your phone's screen on your computer. Then maybe you could use whatever app for backup and save it to your sd card.

    I haven't tried this but you can use adb commands to backup your apps. Here is a guide on how to.

    I'm reading the how to right now but it says I would need ICS on my phone, while I have the stock ROM.

    I have SDK recognizing my phone but it won't do a backup.

    What is it you are talking about that is starred out?



    I guess it needs ICS to work.

    I tried kies, and it updated to ICS, most everything works ok but it didn't save my passwords for aol, gmail and some other programs.

    ******** was the same, any advice?

    I think you would need a specific app to save passwords like that. You can use Kies to backup contacts and media like pictures.
