Default adb without screen?

i bought a used sph-l720 with bad lcd a couple months ago
i finally got the money together and ordered a screen off ebay yesterday and with any luck it will be here by friday.

anyhow is there any way i can hook it up to adb with the screen disconnected and still pull off some information like what firmware and hboot it has?
i just want to mess around with it somehow.

thanks

You could try booting into recovery. Might get lucky and they installed twrp or cwm recoveries. I have no clue what the stock recovery would do. That's the first thing to get replaced when I get something new.

You could do a little poking around with adb shell possibly then.

thats true

might give that a try

the person i bought this phone from had 3 other sprint (not near as good) phones i also bought as a package
i think she worked at radio-shack or something because she said something about customer warranty stuff or something
anyhow each phone had something wrong with it
sold the other 3 which basically paid for the S4 for $100
so yea long story short. its some customers phone for sure which mean it could be custom.

need to check it out tonight probably
thanks
