Hoping you can help as you're my last hope really.

Nexus 4
CM 11

I dropped my Nexus 4 and smashed the screen. Everything works as normal except the screen lower half (where the keyboard is..)
So I can boot into TWRP but cannot enter my decryption password to mount the storage, I can however open an adb shell and work from there.

Im trying to determine if its possible to mount the sdcard and enter the decryption password via the shell so i can retrieve important files. So far it doesn't look like busybox has the functionality to do it but maybe im wrong and just need guidance.

pls halp

I have the same problem. Were you able to provide the password via adb?

"adb shell input" seems not to work as the binary is missing
