    So I'm looking to sell my s4 with a broken LCD screen but first I want to be able to factory reset the phone before someone else has it.
    I've looked online for a while but cant figure it out.
    does anybody know how I could reset my phone without the screen?
    please and thanks!

    Connect it to a monitor or TV via an HDMI adaptor and lead. Turn phone off and reboot to recovery (volume up+home+power). That's the only way to be sure. You could get hold of a working SGS4 and go through all the stages of factory resetting that and only do the last stage in your broken one.
