    Hi :)
    A friend of mine broke his screen some time ago and now he has a OnePlus 5, but he would like some pictures from the phone with the broken screen. And of course there is no backup of them anywhere....
    And I think "That doesn't sound too bad. I'm just gonna jump in ADB mode and pull them from the phone." Easy, right? Wrong. Turns out that he never enabled developer tools, meaning that USB debugging is disabled and OEM is locked. So here's the situation:
    • Screen is black and (probably) doesn't respond to and touch input.
    • Phone is on since it makes the lock sound every time I press the power button.
    • I am able to boot into the stock recovery and fastboot (power button + volume up/down).
    • ADB mode does NOT work.
    • Can't flash anything custom because of locked boot-loader.
    Any help is appreciated :)
