Looking for a way to get my files off my phone, the touch screen doesn't work so I can't get past the lock screen to access my files, and CWM won't usb mount.

Is there any other ways I could retrieve my files?

use ''adb pull'' from custom recovery

i.e

Code:
adb pull /sdcard C:\some_folder

So the display stills work but the digitizer is broken? What ROM are you on? CM11 supports a USB mouse connected via a USB-OTG cable; that will allow you to navigate the lock screen, etc. I'm not sure if stock ROMs support it.

This is probably the only method I could do. But thanks.

Yeah the display still works so I can see what I'm doing, also I'm using ARHD 51.0, if all fails If it don't work on ARHD I can sideload CM11 and try.

Have read that miss matched firmware can give digitizer issues. Were you flashing something when it quit?

Oh no it's not a software issue, the screen got damaged and I messed up something whilst replacing it.
