My wife's Samsung Galaxy S5's LCD has broken.


I've already ordered her another phone.


What I would like to do, is to wipe the S5 and resell it (cheap, as someone might want to use the parts of even replace the LCD themselves).


I can't connect it to a computer, as I need to put it in USB debugging mode. This is not possible for me to do, as the screen is black (due to the LCD being broken).


The phone is still working (notification light flashing etc.).


If I buy one of these, will it work?


Can I really just connect one end to the phone and then the other end (via an HDMI cable) to the TV?


Or will the phone ask if I want to connect to another output (which I won't be able to answer, due to the screen being black)?
