I would like to present you my little program written in Visual Basic.
This tool lets you use your device through your Windows pc even if your touchscreen doesn't work or you can't see anything.
It uses droid@Screen, which wasn't made by me.

UPDATE!!! Full touchscreen support!
You need to have usb debugging enabled.
Enable usb debugging via recovery:
Code:
Adb shell
echo "persist.service.adb.enable=1" >>/system/build.prop
echo "persist.service.debuggable=1" >>/system/build.prop
echo "persist.sys.usb.config=mass_storage,adb" >>/system/build.prop"
reboot

i broke my S3 on stock so nothing was enabled.
i enabled adb via the default.prop and compiled the kernel and flashed in recovery(sideload).
now i have full control over the device.

If you have usb debugging enabled, just connect your phone to your pc and start the program, it should find it automatically

Thanks!

try to connect/disconnect or restart the adb server again and click on your phone if a window comes up with something like trust this comuter then just click yes.

Its really an usefull app! i just used it to try it but its really usefull if you have a broken screen.
