    i know my phone is working but only the screen is not working i can play music through the earpiece by pressing the earpiece volume control.(this clarify that my phone is still working) able to receive calls but only vibarations. my phone is locked by pattern. and i cant see the screen. so when i connect the phone to my pc i can detect my S4 but i cant access the folders as i need to unlock my phone. is there any way through cmd or through the pc to bypass the hidden folders without buying any OTG cables etc..
    thanks in advance

    If USB debugging is enabled, and you've previously used adb from the PC to the phone, and told the phone to always allow that PC to connect, yes. (Otherwise you'll need the screen to enable USB debugging or authorize that PC to connect to the phone - and if you could do that you wouldn't need to.)

    If not, find a friendly repair shop with a working S4 screen pulled from a "doesn't pay to repair" S4, and see if they'll plug their screen into your phone long enough for you to copy everything to an SD card.
