I have a samsung galaxy s1 rooted and using cyanogenmod, yesterday i broke my screen , I need help to remote access it, I got allot of things written down on my memopad allot of things that I need to retrive but I dont seem to make it work(i tried allot of things but mostly i need to find a way to press on that button and activate the debugg mode or smth to let me access the phone) because as far as I remember everytime I connected my phone on laptop I had to manually turn on debugging mode for access to the phone , even though I already activated it in dev tools. it shows me that I plugged in my device but I cant access it and I cant use any app to remote control it. Anyone can give me a solution? When I plug it in, on devices I can see the name of my phone, GT-I9000 but thats all I can get access to it... enter image description here


Suggestion 1:

  1. Run an ADB shell in ClockworkMod

  2. Remount /system in readwrite mode.

  3. Add this to /system/build.prop: persist.service.adb.enable=1

  4. Save the file.

Suggestion 2:

You said that you have installed CyanogenMod. So you probably have a custom recovery, right? You can boot into it, connect your phone to your computer and go to "mounts" -> "mount USB storage". Then you can access your internal storage.

Suggestion 3:

With a little bit of work you could flash a custom kernel with USB-OTG. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1450298

Please note that you need an external power source (USB-Y cable, powered USB hub; see the link).

Then you can use a mouse and a keyboard to control your phone and access your data.

  • i dont know where this "mounts" is on windows 8, can you be more specific? – Andrei Andrew Nov 6 '14 at 12:17
  • It's not in windows, it's in the CWM Recovery on your phone :) – Timo Schwarzer Nov 6 '14 at 12:18
  • I dont have a screen and to be sincere , I dont really know much about cwm recovery or how can I access it, I installed adb too but I dont know how to use it :) – Andrei Andrew Nov 6 '14 at 12:29
  • Is your screen black, or is only the touch affected? – Timo Schwarzer Nov 6 '14 at 12:31
  • black, I cant see anything, but I know its working because of the buttons and that my windows recognizes it as a device – Andrei Andrew Nov 6 '14 at 12:32
