    Hello,

    I had my LG Nexus 4 8G for about 25 days when I dropped it and cracked the front screen. I cannot operate or get into it now. It works as a phone, but the screen is not functional.
    I want to get my texts backed up. Any method to remote into so I can do a back-up?
    I have already tried the Androidscreencast and SDK method, but it never seems to see my phone. I am on a WIN8 laptop.

    Please help!

    Thanks,
    Lisa

    Were you rooted or stock? Any custom recovery installed?

    It would be almost impossible without function of the screen, sorry to say that particularly if you have a lock on it.

    Hi Lisa.

    Am I correct in interpreting this to mean that the screen is not simply failing to display, but also does not accept touch control? If so, I'm afraid I have no solution to proffer. If not, and if it does take touch gestures, a SlimPort adapter should do the trick.

    You are correct Jeremy, it does not allow touch control. Thanks for trying. I'll get it fixed, and sell it or keep as a spare. lol!
