Let’s start with real user practical scenarios!
Practical Scenario 1: A User OnePlus Phone Screen Is Cracked. Want To Unlock Device By Entering Startup Pin
I’ve had a slightly cracked screen for some time with a working phone. Yesterday something must have happened and the phone screen went black but seemed to be still working as I got vibration feedback on buttons etc.
So I did the massage/pressure technique and the screen came back but very distorted. Only problem is the crack is over the bottom part of the screen and it goes over the keypad where you enter the pin. So it the touch screen work except over half the pin keyboard that pops up on startup. My phone was off and now it asks for the pin before starting up.
Have a USB C OTG cable but it doesn’t seem to activate the mouse or external keyboard on that screen. Any thoughts on getting access to the device?

Practical Scenario 2: A User OnePlus Touch Screen Not Working. Want To Unlock Pattern Lock To Access Device
My phone fell and the touch screen doesn’t work. Like a stupid, the first thing I thought was to restart the phone, but then I realized that there was no way to make the touch screen work again in order to draw the pattern sequence to unlock the phone. After 7 hours, even when the phone is switched on, the display is almost completely black. I need to find a way to access my files (videos and pictures).
For me, it would be ok to send the phone to the assistance for repairing, but at the phone call, they told me that even if they repair the phone, the files would be completely erased, so I would not achieve my objective anyway.
Please, somebody helps me!
