    Arrow Android-Android backup with cygwin (Nexus 4)

    Following a OTA update that failed, I had to factory reset my Nexus 4 and I am now trying to recover some pics and files.
    I am completely new to this android thing, even if I used to be on Linux for a long time. I followed this guide to recover my data:
    It seems to work well until I reach the second part:

    nc 5555 | pv -i 0.5 > mmcblk0.raw Whichever I use the mmcblk0 block or the user data block (mmcblk0p23 on Nexus), I am still getting no output (a 0 Byte file, no transfer rate).
    No errors appears. BusyBox is correctly installed and nc is present in the applet list. I even tried with other blocks without any success.
    It seems that other people got the same issue on the previously mentioned forum, however nothing helped me much. Does anyone here had the same issue and solved it?
    Thanks for any help or expert advices!
