    Hello everyone,

    Recently, my phone took a turn for the worse and my screen stopped working completely. I can't swipe to enter my phone password. I can plug it into USB, but I need to enter a password for it to be recognized by my PC. I can boot into advanced boot options (and recovery mode) if necessary. I already wiped the cache partition, but had no luck with it.

    Is there any way for me to save the data off of the phone (besides replacing the screen)?

    I heard that a magnet could help me unlock the screen, but I am not entirely sure I want to try that.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
