    I broke my screen few weeks back. I did not have Google drive sync on hence was going to loose all my data.
    I followed the following steps, posting here hopefully it will be useful to someone.

    I connected my phone to a monitor using a USB-C adapter. I could see the lock screen. But I would not see anything else until this lock was open. Since I had fingerprint lock on and it was broken I was not able to get the keypad to type the code. So I used the side button on the phone to open the camera and clicked at the bottom right side where we usually see the last clicked pictures. When I touched on the last clicked pic, it popped up the keypad and I was able to unlock my phone by approximating the keys on my phone after multiple attempts (I couldn't see the keypad on monitor). Once unlocked (Now I see everything on monitor) I was using the broken screen of my phone to type (it was luckily working with no display). For display I used the monitor. I then enabled USB debugging, started Google drive sync on and other stuff to make sure I can copy the data from the phone to my hard drive.

    I then sent the phone for fix to One plus and they fixed my screen and sent me back my phone in 1 week.

    Did you ever figure this out? I also have a pattern lock on my OP6T and can't seem to find any answers

    This doesnt work with an OnePlus 3T though, ord oes it?
    Because the OnePlus 3T doesn't have MHL.

    Today my OTG Adapter arrived, but my Keyboard isnt recognised/accepted by my OnePlus 3T with my OnePlus Nord it works instantly without any Interaction. Does anyone know why that is?
