- The USB debugging is not activated on device before
I have rebooted into recovery mode, and entered the option

I’m able to see the device by

- What else can I do with
adb sideloadto clear the screen lock?
- What else can be done with
adb sideloadto back up the phone camera images and videos without wiping the data?
