    Hi guys I am new here but hope some one can help I have a galaxy s2 and i dropped it last week smashing the screen the phone seems to work apart from the screen is dead It rings if called and makes noise of a text received but with no screen nothing works.
    And stupidly did not have it insured and the screen is very expensive to replace.......
    But my main problem is I can't access my photos which is the most important thing it is running ics and when i connect it to pc I can't acess any files can anybody help?
    I was wondering if it is possible to connect a mhl adapter with a mains powered usb hub and otg lead with usb mouse would I be able to use my tv with a mouse to control the phone? Or does the otg lead and usb mouse only work if the device is rooted?
    Can any one please help answer my questions my thanks mark.

    Buy the insurance, wait a week then file a claim maybe? And have u tried taking SD card out and plugging directly into computer via adapter?

    Committing a felony is never a good solution to any problem. Plus, many don't realize that beyond the cost of the insurance, there is a replacement fee of around $150.

    I would take responsibility for the break and replace the screen. The SGS2 sells the digitizer and screen as an assembly for around $200.

    And while it's a little involved, you can probably do it yourself.

    And, think of the bragging rights! Successfully accomplish this and you'd immediately be promoted from ensign to commander at any Star Trek convention. ;)

    Sorry guys bad advice on my part, didn't really think about the fact that that was illegal. Having a pretty bad time right now and head isn't where it should be. Or it is where it should be and its causing me to not really focus on anything else

    While we are kind of on the topic, and not to hijack the thread, but my wife just got a replacement from assurion and totally mailed her phone back rooted and running cyanogen. The phone is operational just wouldn't charge cuz that part of phone broke. My aunt has lung cancer I've been no where but work and hospital for 2 months and out of my mind so I didn't think about it at all til it was already sent off. What can I expect?

    Don't worry about it. You've got a lot on your plate. I think the OP will do the right thing. Good luck and God bless. :)

    Hi guys thanks for your input so far the problem I have I can't afford to buy a screen at the moment if i could then I would buy the screen and fit it my self problem is I can't but really want the pics off the phone there is pics of my 11 month old baby and my 5 year old daughter who I don't see much so the photos are very important to me so i need to no if the idea of the mhl lead and otg cable and mouse would work as I have an otg lead and a usb mouse and also a mains powered usb hub but i don't have the mhl cable and don't want to waste money buying one if it does not work........
    So does any one have these leads that could try it on a stock ics galaxy s2 and let me no please.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Are you sure you have the right drivers installed. Instal kies and it does it for you. I know it won't fix your screen but if i connect my gs2 to my pc i get a window pop up asking to open it as a hard drive to see, or something like that. I've never needed to turn mtp on on my phone to be able to transfer.

    Seeing how galaxy s2 sreen easily breaks just in one drop i fell lucky, cuz few days back i fell over my bike, directly in position where the phone was. Thoughts when i fell was like : Oh shi... THE PHONE! Luckily nothing hapenned, no dead pixels, no cracks, everything is just like before. Well i was carrying it in pocket, in protective leather case, but if you weight over 100kg and you fall on solid concreate, the chanses things like those being still in one piece are slim.
