Long story short, i got water damage on phone and screen is completely black. The phone still seems to turn on and off and work besides that. My dillema is that I am sending this phone back to the company I got it from, but I really need data on the device. The phone is rooted with Magisk, and bootloader unlocked. I would like to recover data without having to fix the screen. The phone is detected as 'MTP USB device'. Is my only option to fix the screen to access my data? Or is there some super geeky tech stuff I can do.

If phone supports USB-OTG then you should be able to access user-data stored on phone: requires an USB-C OTG cable.
