You are not eligible for an EAD with only an I-130 pending. However, if you are out of status & not being petitioned by an immediate relative, you will not be eligible to adjust status in the United States, except with 245i grandfatheing. If you are an immediate relative, you should have filed your I485 pkg with your I130. I suggest that you speak with an immigration attorney on your case.
