Recently, I dropped my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and busted the glass, lcd, digitizer, and maybe the speaker. Before, I try anything with replacing the broken parts, I would like to get the SMS database and my photos off via usb cable. Unfortunately, I can't unlocked the screen and the adb devices shows nothing on both a Mac and Linux machines for me to send a command to simulate an unlock gesture. Also, I don't have usb debugging turned on and have no way to turn it on. As a last ditch attempt, I have tried to modify the ~/.android/adb_usb.ini and /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android-rules to try to get adb working. Adb still couldn't find my phone. I also have thought of going the OTG route but nobody that has a Verizon GalaxyNote5 has had any luck with that. What else can I try to get my data off of my phone? Fastboot?
My problem is similar to this except I don't have a Nexus phone: Broken screen while debug mode was disabled. How can I re-enable adb?
