I am running android KitKat stock ROM with a broken display and touchscreen. I have USB debugging enabled. My pattern is 3214789 (3*3 pattern top-right to top-left then to down-left to down-right).

I want my phone to be unlocked so that i could use backup command using adb -s device backup -noapk test.app

  • It would be more easy if you use an OTG cable with a mouse. Does your device not support OTG? – Firelord Nov 26 '18 at 7:15
  • On Kitkat, I don't think there is a separate package that manages lock screen. I had tried this up to Marshmallow and disabling/hiding com.android.systemui disables lock screen as well. – Firelord Nov 26 '18 at 21:01
  • OTG not supported and above all display is completely gone so in my case a single mouse can't do a trick. – Sathish Kanna Nov 27 '18 at 13:22
