    Hello. I have a SE WT19i (ICS 4.0.4., rooted, bootloader - unlocked, adb enabled) phone with a broken digitizer (I accidentally tore the connector off from the main printed board while trying to clean out dust from cameras due to a bad design).

    I would very much like to use this phone as a webcam for a PC as I did until I ruined it when I tried to clean the dust from inside.

    Since my digitizer is not responding I wanted to use USB ADB to adjust some settings in the webcam app so that it would automatically turn on with the phone. But I haven't been able to do this. I've tried a couple of programs I found on the google and the best I've come up with is a program being able to make and fetch screenshots from the phone but the feature of simulating tapping in the phone would not work. This seems correct as 4.0 does not support adb input tap x y, but even when I'm trying to do adb input keyevent 3 or 26 or 82 the phone does not react at all.

    adb device shows my device (usually) and adb help spews out a lot of stuff I don't find useful.
    Code (Text):
    1. Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.31
    3. -a                            - directs adb to listen on all interfaces for a connection
    4. -d                            - directs command to the only connected USB device
    5.                                  returns an error if more than one USB device is present.
    6. -e                            - directs command to the only running emulator.
    7.                                  returns an error if more than one emulator is running.
    8. -s <specific device>          - directs command to the device or emulator with the given
    9.                                  serial number or qualifier. Overrides ANDROID_SERIAL
    10.                                  environment variable.
    11. -p <product name or path>     - simple product name like 'sooner', or a relative/absolute path to a product
    12.                                  out directory like 'out/target/product/sooner'.
    13.                                  If -p is not specified, the ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT
    14.                                  environment variable is used, which must
    15.                                  be an absolute path.
    16. -H                            - Name of adb server host (default: localhost)
    17. -P                            - Port of adb server (default: 5037)
    18. devices [-l]               - list all connected devices ('-l' will also list device qualifiers)
    19. connect <host>[:<port>]       - connect to a device via TCP/IP
    20.                                  Port 5555 is used by default if no port number is specified.
    21. disconnect [<host>[:<port>]]  - disconnect from a TCP/IP device.
    22.                                  Port 5555 is used by default if no port number is specified.
    23.                                  Using this command with no additional arguments
    24.                                  will disconnect from all connected TCP/IP devices.
