  • It is not so useful because most of the people doesn’t know about debugging mode and rightfully it is not turned on most of the time in almost all smartphones, so tell us the way without debugging mode turned on and as we all know that after the phone being locked we cannot turn on debugging mode

    • Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. Though it is a good thought, I will still try to look into it, and check whether there can be something of this sort or not. It is simply difficult cause the ADB access needs to be granted to the SD card access, which might be tricky again, specially when you don’t have the password to unlock the phone in the first place.
