    Yesterday i tryed to copy 1 file trough MTP and windows explorer crashed , later found out mi2 virtual sdcard had become empty after using MTP but all other partitions data like apps setting remain.
    I belive it could be allocation table failure?
    Today tryed many tools for 3-4 hours and found no way to use usb mass storage with latest rom.

    If i flash older rom that suported mass storage what version i need?
    Or can i use mass storage with android OS off and usb connected, as i remember it was possible?

    I need it to recover trough pc as i dont want to lose data by overwriting and diskdigger for android only seeks photo/video.

    How to mount usb storage to recover or is there other way to restore file allocation table like on pc using commander?

    MTP seems very unreliable overall , even with mp3 players both on win 7 and 8, specialy when folders contain many files.

    backup seems to be possible even over wifi...

    commands are bit different from samsung.
    mmcblk0p27 is sdcard on 32gb xiaomi

    adb forward tcp:5555 tcp:5555
    adb shell
    su
    /system/xbin/busybox nc -l -p 5555 -e /system/xbin/busybox dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p27
    -----------------------------------------------new terminal
    adb forward tcp:5555 tcp:5555
    cd /nexus
    nc 127.0.0.1 5555 | pv -i 0.5 > mmcblk0p27.raw
