My Sony Xperia V touch screen is broken in the right corner. The rest of the screen doesn't respond, but the LCD works fine.

I need to make a full backup, but I can't activate debug mode. Also, Windows can't see the internal or external memory.

Do I have any other options on retrieving my data?

UPDATE: This problem is SOLVED. I got debug mode turned on by using a USB (Female) to Micro USB cable (Male). I connected a regular wireless mouse, and moused it through the settings.

  • Close, but not really, me touchscreen dont work, the LCD dos, but i got debug mode turned on by using a USB to Micro USB cabel, and connected a Wireless Mouse, and Moused it through the settings, never tried that before, but it worked perfectly. Aug 8, 2013 at 19:30

There are several options available for you.

  • Given you have enabled USB debugging, you can use Droid@Screen to view the android screen on your PC and control it. (So you can get backups through the PC)

  • You can use an adaptor to control your device using a USB mouse. (So that you can use whatever the app you want to back up your device)

    Seems you have got the otg option working.
