    Thank you for the wonderful video, great job. But doesn't work for me =(
    I think the problem is the encryption of my phone, I can't pass it if I've understand it correct...

    Try to press the space key a few times. I think that your phone vibrates (if it ist Set to loud). then you know you are there. Then enter the Password.

    After vibrating right enter pin?
    ok I'll check

    But are you shure to go up only 1 step with latest official Oxygen 5.0.1, after going back from activating developer options?

    Ok, I just gave up and sent it to the service for repair.

    I'll search where the problem was between your instructions and my phone as soon as I get it back...

    Do you need to have OTG activated for the keyboard connection to work?

    I have tried connecting a keyboard to oneplus device but nothing works. I tried this on a functioning OnePlus 5 (My brothers) and it only connected when we enabled the OTG setting.

    Just wanted to say thank you for all the input in this thread. My OnePlus 3 screen broke and I needed to activating the USB-debugging blind and restore my data with MTP. I used an OGT cable and a USB keyboard. The instructions here worked for me after a little trial and error. I would comment that I see some places in this thread then you need to hit TAB x 2 and some places TAB x 1 to get into the settings menu. For me it was TAB x 1.
    Thank you!!

    Hi! Really love the guide, but it cant seem to work for me. My phone broke down a couple of days ago, but I already have Developer Options unlocked, and cant seem to figure out the right path to activate USB-debugging. Could you please please please write it down for me?

    Hey :) Thanks for the video ! I have a question, my OP3 doesn't respond to my commands when I type on the keyboard. Do i need a "simple" keyboard who doesn't need electricity to work ? Because mine is from "SPIRIT OF GAMER", and when it's connected to my PC a red light is shining from inside, but that light doesn't glow when it's connected to the OP3 by OTG... Sorry for bad english ! @dom94023 pls answer

    Here's a question and a way to bump this thread - this is exactly what I need to do, and I know that it will work as my phone is working fine, I just can't see or touch the screen.

    Now the problem I have which I see you haven't had, is that the OTG feature on oneplus is disabled by default (well, at least since a previous update) so I can't even connect a keyboard to the phone without going in to settings and enabling it (which can't be done on the broken one as I can't see or touch the screen (seeing isn't the issue here)). Is there a way of OTG being enabled by default, before the phone is even logged in? Like maybe a rom to flash to it or a cmd or something?

    Every step closer I get to my files or being able to get the WiFi on to remote desktop to the phone, there is always another wall put up. Like how can it be useful for OTG to be off by default, when that is the final step to get it all sorted before wiping it and spending loads for them to service it?

    I think I have kinda answered my own question in my head, which is to buy a replacement screen/digitiser kit and replace that myself. Just wish there was an easier solution.

    I have connected my New OTG Cable to HP Laptop through Type C option and Used Oneplus 3 cable to connect to my phone.
    But My question is here, the Laptop keyboard is responding to laptop instead of my phone. When I press Windows Key, It is opening Windows in laptop. Tab means, it is going some where.

    What ever process said works only with External Keyboard? or Do I need to any settings before I Use OTG Cable to connect keyboard and Mobile.

    My Oneplus 3 is completely blank and I could able charge it but nothing can been seen.

    When the mobile is switched, am able to see Oneplus logo with F drive in laptop saying device connected. I am not sure whether it is coming while charging/switched off/ switched on.

    Your help is very important to me. Thanks in advance.

    Great video! Thank you for all your help!
    To enable the developer options it is required to enter the pin and press enter. But my phone is unlocked via a pattern lock, how do I do then? I just try to reproduce the pattern, after enabling the developer options?
    Thanks again for your help guys!
