My beloved fell this morning and now the screen is completely black - no display at all.

Got a new one coming tomorrow but I can't figure out how to wipe it. I'm rooted running Hyperdrive. I have a swipe unlock.

I've tried Kies and it can't seem to connect. Does the SIM card need to be in for Kies to work?

Do I have any other options?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Have you tried ODIN yet? That's the most common way to do a full wipe to stock.

And these can both be used with a non-functional display?

I'm unable to even get into download mode or recovery.

This seems to be for Xperia only?

I'd think you could still pull the battery then try to get into download mode Vol Down + Power then wait a second after you hold that combo to hit Volume Up to continue into download mode.

Then have Odin already up and running and plug your phone in and look to see that Odin sees your phone connected. Then flash away.

That's at least how I'd try it. May take a couple times just to get your timing down.
