It's one of the most useful programs ever. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with my PC. I don't really understand the reason.

Hi Guys!
Last week I broke screen in my old OP6. In general, the device is working, the screen is black but the touchscreen works almost well. What I did at first is I turned Google Talkback on and checked if the USB debugging was enabled. Here's the thing, theoretically everything should work perfectly, USB debugging is enabled, Java is installed, drivers for my device is installed, I can also confirm debugging after pluging USB cable which I did many times. But still, the state of the device in [email protected] is offline or rejected. I'll be greatful for any help!

    I would like to present you my little program written in Visual Basic.
    This tool lets you use your device through your Windows pc even if your touchscreen doesn't work or you can't see anything.
    It uses [email protected], which wasn't made by me.

    UPDATE!!! Full touchscreen support!
    You need to have usb debugging enabled.
    Enable usb debugging via recovery:
    Code:
    Adb shell
    echo "persist.service.adb.enable=1" >>/system/build.prop
    echo "persist.service.debuggable=1" >>/system/build.prop
    echo "persist.sys.usb.config=mass_storage,adb" >>/system/build.prop"
    reboot

    for people who dont have adb enabled, i suggest you contact a kernel developer to automatically enable it in the default.prop and sideload the kernel in recovery!
    i broke my S3 on stock so nothing was enabled.
    i enabled adb via the default.prop and compiled the kernel and flashed in recovery(sideload).
    now i have full control over the device.

    This is a quote from @Msmtx who has accomplished, what seemed impossible for some, however he's not allowed to post here yet, I'm posting it so more people can profit from this.

    Msmtx said:
    To activate USB debugging AND workaround Secure ADB on Android versions 4.2+:
    1. Boot to recovery through hardware buttons
    2. Run adb shell
    3. Mount system and data partitions (in my case, on TWRP: twrp mount system && twrp mount data)
    4. Input into adb shell:
      Code:
      echo "persist.service.adb.enable=1" >> default.prop 
      echo "persist.service.debuggable=1" >> default.prop
      echo "persist.sys.usb.config=mtp,adb" >> default.prop
      echo "persist.service.adb.enable=1" >> /system/build.prop 
      echo "persist.service.debuggable=1" >> /system/build.prop
      echo "persist.sys.usb.config=mtp,adb" >> /system/build.prop
    5. On Windows, go to "%USERPROFILE%/.android", open adbkey.pub with Notepad or your text editor of preference and copy all of the file's content (CTRL+A and CTRL+C from Notepad and standard editors)
    6. Back to adb shell:
      Code:
      echo "<paste key here>" >> /data/misc/adb/adb_keys
      reboot
      -- on standard CMD you can paste by right-clicking the title bar> Edit> Paste, or just right-clicking if you have "Quick Edit mode" enabled in CMD's properties.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for this thread this helped me a lot.
    Device is a samsung S4 t-mobile variant.

    The only trick is that on recovery, i'm using latest twrp, i needed to mount system in order to see the build.prop file.

    notice. Device screen is totally broken, doesnt turn on. i was able to accomplish this without it.

    HTML:
    adb shell
    mount system

    after this then i proceeded with whats on the OP.

    Thanks again.

    Update: it works but i get the Unauthorized device on adb shell, not i need to find out how to enable this since i can use the touch screen.
    Update2: I was able to get an rsa key from another samsung s4 that was connected to the same computer, "adb_keys" is located in /data/misc/adb/
    1. you must be rooted to take the adb_keys file from the phone that works. With es explorer "enabled root explorer" and i was able to see this file.
    2. once you get a copy of adb_keys, reboot the phone with broken screen into recovery, adb recovery should work. im using twrp.
    3.adb push <location of file>rsa_keys /data/misc/adb/
    4. adb reboot and once the phone bots up voila! adb shell should be able to see the phone now.

    i hope this helps someone like it did to me.
