I got it to work :) NOTE: This also requires your device to be rooted. (Thankfully, mine was rooted) Connect the device to Mac or PC in recovery mode. (I had to map the process in my mind as the screen was broken). Now open terminal/CMD in computer and go to platform-tools/. type and enter ./adb devices to check if the device is connected in recovery ...

To my knowledge if you do not have USB debugging ADB is not running and any tools that rely on ADB will fail to work.

Try the 15-seconds ADB/drivers all-in-one installer. You could also install the Samsung drivers rather than conventional OnePlus drivers. I installed these drivers and I've had mine working since the upgrade. You could also try following this guide on how to set it up.

Could try downloading a custom recovery, such as Clockworkmod for the device and flash it via odin. I think Clockwork mod has adb shell built into it. Then you can run the commands that way. And as far as I know, odin doesn't require USB debugging. It doesn't need it when the phone is in download mode.

15 seconds minimal ADB, fastboot and drivers installer. No need to navigate to the installation folder in CMD. It can be installed system-wide. No need to check for manufacturer specific drivers. Everything included in 9MB.

Hint, Google repository. Ah here you go a better example from the past Find your Sdk folder then locate both tools and platform-tools subfolders. Check the Google repository find what version you want to downgrade to and download the .ZIP for both. Unpack the the .ZIP's you just downloaded move the Tools subfolder over to your Android Sdk folder. Then ...

If you have ADB debugging turned on, you can give Vysor a try: http://www.vysor.io/ PS: If you can't get to it because the phone is locked, attach a computer keyboard to the phone and unlock it.

For the RSA verification that you asked to bypass, I don't know whether it would work in your device, but it worked in my little experiment. In Lollipop, the ADB keys (after authorization) are saved in /data/misc/adb/adb_keys. Your private key is saved in computer. In Linux the directory location is $HOME/.android/. On Windows that usually translates to ...

In your command line example, you are running the ADB command from the Android terminal with / as current directory. So Android tries to write the output to /logcat.txt, which fails. Keep in mind that after you execute adb shell everything you type happens on the phone. The command adb logcat then runs on your phone, and the creation of the text file also ...

adb logcat on your phone launches an ADB server on your phone (which is also running on your PC) and connects to itself. Then you try to write everything to /logcat.txt (/ is the the root of your filesystem; you can't write there). Try routing your output to something like /sdcard/logcat.txt or run it directly on your PC, where it gets saved in the ...

I Removed my Path Variable as I was getting nowhere, and instead I put the contents of the platforms-tools folder at the root directory of where my CMD opens in, which is my user folder. I am now able to run ADB from the default CMD location, although this isn't an ideal and thorough solution that can be used were every I open the CMD prompt on my computer, ...

since i'm not able to comment, i'll make an answer. i've been in this exact spot with this device before. you won't be able to flash the recovery w/o triggering knox and voiding the warranty. if that's not a concern, you should be in the clear. keep in mind, you could lose the data at any point in the process. samsung has notoriously unreliable USB ...

No, it would not backup Contacts. Yes, it would backup Contacts. Confused, eh! Yes, it would backup Contacts. See this question: Backup/Restore SMS/MMS via ADB on a non-rooted device? The author of it was able to backup contacts. It was later revealed that the device on which the backup was performed ran Android 4.1.2. It was a bizarre revelation for ...
