ANDROID PHONE: SMASHED (SCREEN, LCD, DIGITIZER)
Posted on 2014-12-07
After it falls from a height of 2 meters, the ground facing its glass screen, I found out after a while that not only the screen was broken but the phone lost its LCD and digitizer as well!
Among more than SIX GSM phones I owned, this one was one of my favorites.
What does matter to me now is to regain the use of the “4G Modem” of the device.
I looked for 3 days over the net to find an application whereby I can gain full access to my smart phone using my Win-7-based laptop (to fully control it and mirror its screen). By the way, I’m not sure, but I think the phone is Android 4.2.x version.
Unfortunately, either I found too sophisticated (coding solutions), or solutions requiring pre-requisites (for e.g. the phone should be rooted already), or solutions that are missing some essential steps to be comprehensive (for example, there is an application that works if you can overcome the problem of “USB Debugging” or “Find a way to unlock the screen” first!
So far, I can turn ON the phone (without seeing anything – no screen), turn it off (by removing and returning the battery), connecting it through a cable to my laptop (where it behaves like an external hard disk or flash memory – I could import all multimedia contents from the phone memories (internal and external “micro-SD card”), and of course charging it.
Does anybody has a sweet plan for a REGULAR Smart Phone End User (not a geek developer), whereby s/he can enlist a sequence of simple, well explained and detailed steps, including all what’s needed in every step – application(s) and tool(s), to have all the control needed from my laptop over my phone, so ideally, I can work on the laptop screen as if I’m working on the phone simultaneously (complete mirroring and control), reaching all necessary menus, keys, functions, etc. which would enable me to “Unlock Screen”, “Do USB Debugging –if necessary”, “Turn on Data Mobile Network”, “USB Tethering”, etc. and ultimately regain the functionality of the 4G modem?
Thanks & Regards…
