Hey there, thanks for your reply. So I went to TWRP, connected the phone to the computer, adb sees the device, I ran the commands without the extra " in the end (I assume that was a typo right? because otherwise it doesnt work) and I assume that USB debugging is now ON because I can access my phone from the computer when it is booted normally (not in recovery)
However I cannot get your program to work, it doesn't detect the device for some reason? I ran with admin rights too, and I chose for adb executable the correct location (c:/adb/adb.exe)
Do I actually need to download the whole android SDK thing for this to work?

Galaxy S6 Egde
Hi there guys

I have a Galaxy S6 Edge with a broken screen (no image and no inputs). Phone is stock ROM and USB debugging not enabled.
How do I boot into recovery if I cannot see what is happening on the screen when I press the required button combination, in order to use ADB to set the phone to USB debugging enabled. I have seen some refer to method of downloading firmware (would this be from the net or somehow extract the firmware from the phone) and then change the build.prop to enable USB debugging and then flash the firmware to the phone (how do you flash if USB debugging is not enabled?)
Sorry I am a total noob. I once or twice rooted a Samsung Note 1 and Motorola Zoom tablet, but only by following the steps given.
Please help

now i have full control over the device.
thanks for the tool mate! i hope to see it cross compiled for linux soon aswell

Hi there
I have a Galaxy S6 Egde with broken screen. Black and unresponsive. Where can I get hold of a developer to enable USB in the default.prop and where can i get details on how to sideload the kernel if I am unable to see if the phone is actually going into the boot recovery.
Please help

Well i absolutely wrecked my screen and already disconnected it from the phone so there's no way i can insert anything. Problem is that apparently ADB doesn't connect in system mode without the pin (idk but it did in recovery mode) so i can't do anything except mashing the hardware buttons.

Any tips and tricks? I reinstalled the drivers already when i was in recovery mode because the device didn't show up in ADB.

BTW i'm talking about a Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) with the newest Resurrection Remix 9.0 ROM and USB Debugging should be enabled.
