Does anyone have any ideas on how to bypass the lock screen without any use of the touchscreen? I have debugging mode on, and I have a access to view what is on the screen via hdmi cable or remote viewer.
Thanks in advance.
As long as your phone is rooted you should be able to do
If you've never given adb su priviledges before it may not work, in which case you should boot to recovery (if your rooted I'm assuming you have proper recover installed, and if you don't shame on you
Any recover based on TWRP (SafeStrap, ClockworkMod, etc.) should give you adb access, you might need to mount the system partition though.
