When you connect your phone with debugging on for the first time to your pc, you need to authorize it, but with a broken screen it's not that easy. If you can see anything on the phone, you should see a prompt like in the screenshot in the link below and you have to somehow confirm it.

Nice app.

Sadly I can see my screen but the touch doesnt work at all (digitizer broken). Is there a way? I can get into downloader mode and recovery mode. Ive installed the SDK and 5.0 and 4.4. I cant install a new rom due to using a touch recovery.

If you can get into download mode, then you can flash a non-touch recovery and do whatever you want from there.

Nexus 4 kernel with USB Debugging ?
Hi,
Did anybody find a kernel for Nexus 4 with USB Debugging pre-enabled ?
I couldn't get it worked using the adb shell commands the developer suggested.

Hi all,

Thanks for this thread this helped me a lot.
Device is a samsung S4 t-mobile variant.

The only trick is that on recovery, i'm using latest twrp, i needed to mount system in order to see the build.prop file.

notice. Device screen is totally broken, doesnt turn on. i was able to accomplish this without it.

HTML Code:
adb shell
mount system
after this then i proceeded with whats on the OP.

Thanks again.

Update: it works but i get the Unauthorized device on adb shell, not i need to find out how to enable this since i can use the touch screen.
Update2: I was able to get an rsa key from another samsung s4 that was connected to the same computer, "adb_keys" is located in /data/misc/adb/
1. you must be rooted to take the adb_keys file from the phone that works. With es explorer "enabled root explorer" and i was able to see this file.
2. once you get a copy of adb_keys, reboot the phone with broken screen into recovery, adb recovery should work. im using twrp.
3.adb push <location of file>rsa_keys /data/misc/adb/
4. adb reboot and once the phone bots up voila! adb shell should be able to see the phone now.

i hope this helps someone like it did to me.

Thank you for the great tool!

It partially works on my shattered OnePlus One:
I can click Home and such, but Tapping on the screen is not working, nor does swipe action (since mine is vertical swipe not horizontal).
I can tap and unlock vertically via adb shell manually, and I can also tap x, y cordinates - but taps dont do anything in the app.

Any ideas how to make taps work?
I am using the Linux Binary...
