Default [Q] Need help for my previous phone

My old phone's galaxy note broke...And I need some important data from the internal memory..Phone starts but the display isn't working. So I can't unlock the device to make my data read through the USB cable .Is there any way I can unlock it without replacing my display?

Odd that you would post a question about a Note phone in the S5 forum.

Anyway, numerous ways. The most obvious one would be to repair the display, then the point would be moot. But presumably you don't want to pay to do that.

I can think of half a dozen ways to do what you want, perhaps the easiest would be to boot to recovery mode, go to the command line (or ADB) and pull the files you want. Or even easier, use the dd utility to image the entire partition to your external SD card.
