I broke the screen on my Nexus 4 and it has a passcode for the lock screen. Is there any way I can unlock it without fixing the screen, e.g. buying some sort plug & play keyboard for the micro-USB port?

  • not for nexus 4. but you can enter fastboot and boot into twrp from where you have full adb access (if bootloader was previously unlocked already) – alecxs Jun 25 '19 at 4:09

  • with locked bootloader, maybe you can inject modified ROM (only system partition) with LG Flash Tool or LGUP, where adb root is enabled in /system/build.prop – alecxs Jun 27 '19 at 7:11

    Please also check LG Bridge software, it has backup option. Maybe you can restore backup after unlocking bootloader – alecxs Jun 27 '19 at 7:28
