I just did this with my 3 year old LG P970 Optimus Black. I also had no idea this function existed and found out by accident after already resigning myself to the fact that all my data was lost. Touchscreen connector broken so can't open the phone past the lock screen and can't replace the touch screen because the connector on the motherboard itself is broken. Installed the OSP program on my PC and connected the phone with USB and it immediately found the phone and connected to it. After having tried numerous methods to do this and failing every time, I was understandably ecstatic. It wanted a password, which I knew for a fact that I had never set up on the phone, but I tried a few and 0000 worked and my phone connected. I was able to go into the phone and save all the data that was not on the SD card and change a few settings on the phone etc, including backing up Navier Line chats etc. I never needed to set up or confirm anything on the phone itself, it was all done remotely from the PC which makes it ideal for accessing a phone with a broken screen. This is awesome function that I am surprised LG don't shout about from the rooftops because I am sure this functionality alone would sell phones.
