How to Unlock an Android Device with a Broken/Cracked Screen?

Method One: Using Android Debug Bridge

Android Debug Bridge is a command line tool, which lets you communicate with your phone through a computer. It’s commonly used by developers. You need a computer, micro USB cable and Android SDK to proceed with this. Most importantly, USB Debugging option on your phone should already be turned on. This method will not work with this option turned off.

Step 1 : At first, visit this link to download Android ADB files. Make sure to download the correct file that is compatible with your computer. Install Android ADB file on your computer.When you finish installation you see this screen on your computer.

Step 4: Again, enter the following two commands to the window. You have to type the second immediately after the first one. And, replace 6789 with the phone password (if you use password as a locking option).

adb shell input text 6789
shell input keyevent 66
If this process gets succeeded, your phone will be unlocked at once. Hurray! You can start taking backups now.
