    i dropped my OPO 3t at a gas station when on the way to smoky mountains national park for a few days of hiking. The crack was the only damage at first, then I lost use of the right side of the screen and a purple fringe started showing up.

    the purple spread and I slowly lost control of the rest of the screen.

    now im home and the service center says its standard procedure to wipe phones during repair which is terrible. I have tons of pictures I need to backup if I am to send it to them. I cannot access the storage from PC because I cannot unlock the phone using on screen pattern.

    Is there a way to enable usb debugging with adb, and then unlock the phone remotely using adb? I have no idea what else to do unless I want to try to replace the screen myself.... is it hard to do? UGH

    yes, but the phone was off when I dropped it. the first unlock after booting must be with lock pattern, not fingerprint :(

    misspoke. I acutally used it to take pictures but it eventually died while hiking for a few days. after charging and booting at home, one must unlock with pattern before fingerprint works...

    Sorry but there is no other option than spare screen. Use cloud backup next time

    Hi, I wonder if you could expand a bit on your explanation. I am not as tech savvy, but I have the same problem: broken screen going to purple and then going black, phone switches on, no debbug on, ...

    I am not familiar with the concepts and strategy you said you solved the problem. Would you/anyone be so kind to expand on that? thank you

    Hi, would you maybe be able to expand on the solution you found please? I'm in the same situation now ( broken screen, no display, phone restarted, pattern unlock, debugging not enabled) and slowly running out of options. I know this is an old thread but I'd be forever grateful if you could reply. Thank you
