Info 2 [Q] Smashed screen, save the data?

Hi,

So on mothers day I smashed my phone.. anyways, upon turning the phone on I cant see the screen, and the touch functions are broken.

I connected the phone to the pc, but it wont show up, I think I have to unlock the phone in order for my pc to access the contents of my phone. Is there anything I can do? I don't have a pin or screen lock, just the slider. My phone IS rooted, and I'm sure I can run adb, but I don't know what commands to do. If anyone can help that would be awesome, I'm open to ideas.

Clock CWM Mounting?

One thing you can attempt is, boot into recovery and mount your device as USB drive.
If you run CWM, you will find this in Mounts and Storage. If you mount as USB drive, you can access the SD card...
