I have physically broken my SGS3's (i9300) display, and thought the phone was now just trash. But as I came home with it in my pocket, to my surprise, it connected to my Wifi, synced my files with my desktop, connected to WhatsApp web, and even rang when someone called. In short, it seems to be in working order other than the display not working at all (not accepting any touch inputs either).
Now, replacing the display is not economically feasible, but it would be nice if I could use the working phone for something - I was thinking microserver, IP camera, Wifi repeater, there are all kinds of things I could think of.
If only I could find a way to remotely control it.
Here is what I have, exactly:
- Samsung Galaxy SIII i9300
- Running CyanogenMod version 11
- TWRP probably around version 2.7
- Root is enabled
- USB debugging is enabled (but not root via USB)
- 3rd party apps are enabled
- Tasker is installed and running
I also have an SD card I could put in the phone and a working USB cable connecting it to my PC.
Can anyone think of a way to McGuyver together a way for me to gain control over the phone ?
