*more or less directly copy-pasted from a log in Skype XD;*
So in other news, my cellphone died in an unceremonious blaze of glory last night as a 10lb dog caused it and a coffee mug with some leftover mocha from the previous morning to plummet to the floor and caused the screen to go perma-black because the dog decided it was a GREAT IDEA to leap off of my lap by jumping straight into my headphone cord and thusly caused the headphones and everything even near the cord to rip violently off of my desk and onto the hard wood floor o__o;
In better news, while the screen is more or less dead, it still works when hooked up to the PC via USB.
In bad news, I didn't enable USB debugging so I am locked out of being able to root the phone so I can get my data off of it. (namely I'm trying to find all of the files my note-taking app saves because it's where I store a LOT of my game design notes >___________>; )
In better news, I MAY be able to make a full data recovery 'cause I found a guide for enabling USB debugging when your screen's dead.
But, too tired to do it at the moment. Didn't get much sleep 'cause the dog got me up early o__o; (and she didn't even have the decency to pee when I let her out =3=; )
Just gotta turn on USB debugging, then I can root the phone to get my data off of it, and then I guess follow the other guides I saw that give tips for other ways to make use of a busted phone screen ^__^; (there's even ways to like, operate your phone from your PC, which is pretty awesome)
