Can I hook one phone up to another screen with a digitizer test cable?

hello,
I made a previous post about accessing a broken S7 phone. My GF and I both have the same S7s and I saw a digitizer test cable on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EVO5ULO/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1.
I was going to
1. Hook one end up to digitizer on her mother board
2. Detach digitizer ribbon from my mother board
3. Hook other end up to the detached digitizer from my phone.

Would this work? I am not sure what connections are on both ends of the ribbon?

I got it sorted out. I ended up asking a repair shop if I could hook up a new digitizer to the phone to turn on debugging and what not. I also borrowed my neighbors laptop took a so I could allow the phone when the key came up. The guy at the place was cool and said I could take as long as I needed. He did charge me $30 which I though was reasonable and definitely worth it to get the pictures back.
