So I acquired a Nexus 6 with a completely dead screen. (Dead as in I cannot see anything)
The phone powers on (and off) and is detected by my computer.
I want to be able to see the phone's display on my computer. I believe the process will be straight forward if I mange to get ADB enabled
The phone is presumably locked (I do know the unlock pattern) and USB debugging is disabled.
adb devices gives no output
When I boot into recovery mode,
fastboot devices recognizes my device.
The phone is probably unrooted and has a locked bootloader. I do not need to preserve any data.
If I manage to get ADB working, I known of tools that will allow me to view my phone screen, which is my end goal.
I looked at Broken screen while debug mode was disabled. How can I re-enable adb? but when I tried booting CWM recovery rom, I got the message "FAILED (remote failure)" because the bootloader is locked? Similar problem with Android toolkit.
Anyone know of a way to enable ADB through fastboot when USB debugging is not enabled
Thanks in advance
EDIT: I followed this guide to not avail
