What is USB Debugging?

USB Debugging is a way to enable connection between your Android device and computer, so that you manage and transfer data from Android device to PC and vice versa. For example you have to enable USB debugging mode when you have to transfer data like pictures, video recording and other personal data from your Android device to PC.

By default, in all the brand new device, the USB debugging mode is disabled in order to avoid accidental modifications on your device. But sometimes things happen and it happens unexpectedly and without any notice. If your phone gets locked due to forgotten screen lock PIN, password or pattern lock or phone screen gets broken with USB debugging off, on responding to any touch. Of course, USB debugging cannot be enabled. Just like the practical scenario mentioned-below:

[Q] Broken Screen, Recovering Files without USB Debugging turned on

My S3 I9300 screen is completely broken (blank) and I want to recover my photos. I can turn on the phone and it makes all the usual noises therefore indicating that it is working.

I have downloaded the Unified Toolkit from here:

But it seems that I need USB Debugging turned on for me to do anything with the phone – but this is impossible without a working screen…

I can blindly boot the handset into recovery mode – this results in Windows recognising the device (a device with no folders appears in explorer), and so does the Unified Toolkit (serial number is displayed).

Does anyone have any suggestions about how I can proceed? Are there any other tools that I can use? Is it possible to turn on USB debugging some other way?
