Hi guys,

I've got a problem. My Nexus 4 fall on the ground, and the touchscreen is broken. The phone works, I can got to the lock screen, but then I cannot selection anything to unlock it. I know the schema to do. Is it possible to change my finger for anything else, like mouse? Or find another solution?
Then I could unlock and try to get something from it.

Thanks

Do you have debugging enabled? You can use adb to pull whatever you need to get from it

I don't think USB debugging is on, and I can't verify directly on the phone. is there a way to look that with the computer?

The lock screen is a scheme with 9 dots

, and I have to unlock it with a Z scheme from the top left corner to the low right corner. there's only a little part of the touchscreen working, which include the two down dot at the left.

Just type
adb devices
Into cmd/terminal, if you see your serial number than good, if you see a blank line than try again from recovery. If you get an error than adb is not functioning on PC and this needs to be fixed
