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

I have tried the OTG cable and a mouse.  It does not work. Even my other working Sony Xperia do not pick up the OTG cable.

 

I have tried is on a SAMSUNG and it is working so it is not the cable or mouse that is the problem

I have a Sony ZX1.  It does not pick up the OTG able and mouse.  I have tried it on a SAMSUNG phone and it is working fine.

Re: How to copy files from a locked XperiaZ,Z1 And all Other Xperia's with broken screen

I tried this and it was successful on first attempt. When I disconnected the mouse from OTG and again connected back in, the cursor didn't show up. I've tried force shutdown leaving the mouse plugged into my phone through OTG, when I did this, mouse cursor showed when the device started and when i tried to navigate, cursor didn't move and the cursor faded and disappeared.

 

PLEASE HELP!!!!!

I desparately need the files I have in my phone.

Hi, did this work for anybody?
Nothing happens when I connect a mouse to my Sony Xperia Z5 compact (that has a broken screen but otherwise functions).
