Re: How to copy files from a locked XperiaZ with broken screen

Hi all
Before I try all the tips I need to check one thing first, must the sim card and sd card be in the device before I try getting photo's etc off?

Connecting a mouse with OTG cable can work if you have a broken or unresponssive screen, but how about if you have a dead screen, where you can't see, and connecting via USB to computer goes directly to Charging mode and you can't change to MTP mode siince you can't see the screen?
