A patch yesterday has broken my Nexus 9 tablet pretty bad. When it starts up, it gives some message about it being corrupt. Then it shows the Google logo followed by the phrase "No Command" under a picture of a little dead Android logo guy. After showing that for a bit, it restarts and does it all again. I don't need help fixing that, I figure a factory reset will do it and if not, well it's still under warranty and has a dead pixel anyways. Two birds, one stone. Problem is I have a bunch of files I wrote in AK Notepad that I'd really hate to lose.

 

I can boot into Recovery Mode. I've read on Google that some Droids have a Backup option in this menu, but I do not. Is there any way I could pull my files off of the tablet? Note that, to make matters worse, the Nexus 9 has no SD card slot. The SD card is simulated on the internal hard drive. I also do not wish to root the thing, as that would void the warranty. I could maybe ask HTC, but their policy is to wipe everything that comes in for security reasons, so I have my doubts that they'd do a data recovery for me.

 

I know that all wildly narrows down the possibilities, but any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I have no experience with it but you can try Easeus Data Recovery for Android.

 

The PC version allows 2GB for free but I am not sue about the Android version.

Seems EaseUS needs me to make the tablet discoverable first, putting it into a USB data connection instead of just USB charge connection. If I can do that in Recovery Mode, I'm not sure how.
