Cant backup because need passcode but broken LCD
Ok so my screen broke. I tried to repair it myself with a LCD from ebay and think I screwed the motherboard somehow. Now nothing shows up on the screen, but i can hear noises etc when I play when the home and power buttons so it does still work. But the screen is black and totally unresponsive to touch.
Anyway took it to a technician. He tried 3 brand new lcds screens but none of them work. He told me the motherboard was damaged and wont output to the lcd screens.
Ive decided to switch to an S4 now and want to use the Smart Switch function which essentially takes all my messages and app data from the iphone to the S4 but this requires a backup of the iphone.
When I plug the iphone to my computer it's recognized but itunes wont let me create a backup without entering a passcode on the iphone. :(
What are my options here?
Thanks in advance!
Is this a good question?
