Can anybody help me please? I am able to connect to my Samsung Galaxy S7 and the phone is discovered in [email protected] However, under "State" I always get the "rejected" message. I have tried to re-connect to my phone several times without any luck. My LCD is damaged and not working (= black) so I can't respond to any pop-ups on my phone's screen. Any help is appreciated

State: rejected
Well done and thank you for this great work.

I have successfully connected my note 4, it's listed in the [email protected] but I can't get to see my screen (state: rejected).

I can't get to check and allow the "allow connection to my computer" option on my phone as the screen is broken.

What can i do please?

Thank you for your assistance.

Thank you for your assistance.

Did you have USB debugging enabled before the screen broke? If not, this tool is not going to work for you and there is no way to enable that setting now that your device is broken.

Many people do not have USB debugging enabled because they don't know how vital that setting is if their device encounters issues. One of the first things I do when I get a new device is enable the USB debugging setting and then I leave it enabled as long as I own the device, so I can fix it if it has issues. I want to ensure that I don't get stuck in a position that I can't make a connection with PC, if it is needed in order to repair the device or retrieve data from it.

Buy a complete LCD+digitizer+glass combination and then replace the screen.

In fact I have USB debugging enabled and when I type the command "adb shell",
I get "error: device unauthorized. Please check the confirmation dialog on your device."

Which means that i should allow the connection from my phone which I can't as the screen is broken.

I know someone suggested to connect an OTG mouse and try to click on the "ok" option but this is a little hectic (tried many times).
Do you know a command that would bypass this authorization?

Try reading this and try the things they did to see if it works for you.

Using the mouse should work for you, with a little time, trial and error and patience.
