[I apologize if this is the wrong place for this thread, or if this question has already been asked. I am new here and have not been able to find the an answer after my own research.]
I have recently lost my Nexus 5X to the bootloop problem that has been going around.
I have a two month old complete (including all partitions I could) TWRP backup. I also managed to get a complete FireFlash backup right before the phone started its bootloop. Seeing as I'm thinking of upgrading phones and would not like to buy another 5X, nor do I have access to another 5X, these are somewhat useless (as far as I know). I was wondering if one of the backups could be flashed to an android emulator / virtual machine in order to allow me to pull more data off the device. My thought process is that if you could emulate the hardware and partition set-up, then the emulation should be able to flash and boot the recovery, allowing me to have a digital copy of my phone and get everything I want off of it.
If this is not possible, what are my other options to make use of these backups?
