How to Copy a app from an inaccessible android device

I purchased  a device with a app that I need, unfortunately, I think the manufacturer disabled the wifi and even when I try to access it on a desktop it's not working, and also  I don't have the system UI password.

I am not happy about the device specification, it's: 512mb ram, plus only 8gb flash.

I want to know my options on how to copy the contents. I do not mind to do a hardware copy, even if I have to remove the flash memory chip and find a way to copy it... into a larger flash.

I have done HDD backups for my server in the past so, I want to believe hardware copy is possible. Do advise.

This is a hard project.  Firstly, it will be nearly impossible to remove the flash memory chip from the phone because it is most likely hardwired into the system board.  Do not even attempt it.

If you can find a way to load apps on it, you should get ES File Manager.  It has a built in function that lets you backup applications by making a copy on your phone.  If the phone has a slot for a memory card, you can load the app onto the memory and install it from there.

What do you mean it doesn't work when you plug it into the computer?  or that you need the system UI password?  if it's not booting, then you might want to look up information on how to unbrick phones.  try turning off the device, removing the battery, re-inserting the battery, then holding down both the volume down button and the power button at the same time.  If it boots up into the system menu, you might have a chance with an unbricking utility.  You might also have some luck if you have the Android SDK installed on your computer, as it provides a means to connect to the Android device via a terminal/command prompt window.
