My touchscreen just crapped out on me a couple weeks back. I've bought a new phone and was able to retrieve all my documents/pictures from my One XL as it functions perfectly in all other aspects other than the touchscreen.

I was hoping to turn this into just a not so portable PMP having it permanently sit in the dock so I can watch movies and youtube while on my PC and control the phone via the usb port with my mouse. I tried my OTG cable with a usb mouse but that doesn't seem to work.

I also tried android screencast which while it mirrors the device's screen onto the PC doesn't actually grant any control over the device.

I was wondering if you guys knew of a way I can bypass my lockscreen via using the ADB as that's the first hurdle I need to get through.
