iPhone blocked for 24milion minutes, screen totally broken, need data!
Hi, my iPhone 6 screen got totally cracked. I can't enter the code anymore.
(I do have the code.)
I really need the pictures on the phone.
Unfortunately haven't done a iTunes backup for a while.. The photo's i so desperately need are only stored on the device.
What i've tried so far:
- fixed the screen: after the fix, the screen said 'locked for 24million minutes' (they also replaced the battery...). so no option there. I asked the repair-man to put the phone back to the old broken-state, as i have an insurance to fix the screen, but that company will wipe all data in doing so... After i have recovered the photo's, i will send the phone to repair.
- Connected device to the main iMac-device, where i've done a backup in the past. But using iTunes to look for the photo's and synch from there, i get the prompt 'phone locked, enter code on phone'.
- Have tried several 'recovery software tools. tried the trial versions, but most of them didn't offer a backup from device, of if they did, they prompt me for entering the code on the device. Which i can't.
- One version did seem to work (Tenorshare) but after i bought the paid version, the software keeps crashing.. Am in the middle of claiming my money back... They keep saying the issue will be resolved in a week... Very disappointing.
I can connect the phone to a computer, it shows up on iTunes and on the Trial versions of the software, so if only i can get an actual program that can enter my phone without entering the code on the device (isn't there a tool that let's you enter the code on the computer in stead of the device??)
What else can i try??
Thanks a Million for all assistance!
Is this a good question?
