Hi

I was given a Xiaomi Mi4 with a broken screen by a friend, and I want to use it as part of a robotics project. (I need this phone in particular because it features hardware scheduled shutdown & restart).

I can boot in recovery (mi recovery 2.01) & fastboot. 'fastboot devices' lists a device but 'adb devices' does not.

Is there a way I can remotely install something like JuiceSSH? Or otherwise remotely control it?

I think I need USB Debugging enabled to do this?

any help appreciated.

I can get into the internal storage, and I can boot into recovery and select 'install update.zip', so it should be possible to install a different rom on it.

Is there a rom for the mi4 that has USB Debugging turned on? Or has Vysor or something similar installed by default?

some custom ROMs come with USB debugging enabled .
I can't try for you cuz I don't have this phone model :(.
But I think you can turn on adb via recovery mode .
Are you using custom recovery.
