I smashed my display pretty good today and am unable to use the digitizer. The upper half of the screen is barely visible and the lower half is black. I have debugging enabled on the phone but I can't push the button to accept the key when the phone is connected to the computer. So, I am unable to gain access to my data/texts while I wait on my new phone. I found a blog post where the guy walks through a whole series of commands to permanently enable debug mode on his phone through use of adb in recovery.
Fortunately I am able to use the volume, home and power keys to boot into recover. I am also able to read enough of the screen to make the selection to "apply update from ADB". Once I select this I run...
...where my device is listed with a status of sideload. All seems good until I attempt to do anything else. Issuing...
... returns error:closed as does pretty much any other command.
Any thoughts as to what I may be doing wrong?
