Question advise and info needed

A friend of mine recently had her S3 screen just go out. Well actually she was probably a little rough with it and I'm thinking its the data cable in the back just needs to be reattached. Well she ended up getting a new LG so i got her old S3 for free, but no working screen. Anyway to pull the files on there or even maybe turn on mirroring to my S4 and be able to see whats there? no sim card, memory card (8 gb lol) and not rooted, but probably a little on internal memory. she didnt know what build she was on (4.1.2 4.3 or what jellybean even was) so i would need that info as well if i can run it through odin for root. I can use adb on my laptop just am not in any way familiar with Sammy. Do any Devs need cherry stock files for anything? Just kinda need to know where to start and what to do. Thanx y'all for the time.

I'm not sure, I've never used the toolkit myself I only remembered that it had that option.
