I broke the screen on my S4 to the point that it is not usable. I work in a hospital and urgently need to access my phone and the texts on it. The phone is rooted. Is there any way I can access my texts and unlock my phone so I can access the data on it.

Can you plug it into a PC and access KIES?

Other than that, I do not know. I use MightyText and that keeps everything sync'ed to the cloud. Maybe installing that after the fact.

Or, second thought, look towards AndroidLost, I think you can install that without seeing the screen.

If you can get into recovery, you could make a nandroid backup of your current setup, then restore data (I'd advise against system) onto the new phone, assuming it's still a Galaxy S4 (and it's not the Triband).

Alternatively, still do the nandroid but use an app such as Nandroid Explorer to get the pieces you need out of it.
