The screen on my phone is broken, and there are a few files I'd like to get off of it. I don't care about the phone at all, just the files. I know the password, I just can't enter it on the broken screen.

I can plug the device into my computer, and it recognizes it, but I can't unlock it, so my computer cannot copy files off of it.

lsusb lists it as Bus 001 Device 097: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd Galaxy (MTP).

adb devices unfortunately doesn't recognize my phone, presumably since it's locked.

It's possible there's more damage to my phone than just the screen, not sure though since it won't turn on.

Any advice would be appreciated, I don't even really know where to start.
