Hi!
My screen just broke and i want to view my phone somehow- is that possible?
I don't just want to backup or restore files but to actually see the screen like it looks on the phone (so i could go through apps\files and decide what i want to restore etc)
7 edge,full root and adb
Thank you!

    Thank you so much! Are there simple instructions for someone who does not know what all these things mean?
    On the GitHub page linked to scroll down to section "Get the app" -> Windows, download the .ZIP-file provided onto PC, extract .ZIP-file to any location of your preference on PC, then when .ZIP-file got unpacked connect phone with PC via USB-cable - preferredly the one that came with phone - and finally run the "scrcpy.exe" located in unpacked SCRCPY folder.

    Example screenshot:

    There is a hardware solution. If you have Micro USB, get a MHL cable and connect your phone to a monitor.
    If you have USB-C get a Typ-C to HDMI Dock and connect your phone to a monitor, you cann attach mousse an Keyboard, too.
