Question [Q] Gnex stucks on Nexus logo

Hello guys, I need your help with the Gnex.

My friend gave me the phone hoping that I can do something. It stucks on nexus logo while booting. USB debugging is turned off, cwm or twrp is not installed. All I can is to enter Android system recovery with the following options: apply update from adb; apply update from usb drive; wipe data factory reset; wipe cache partition.

I've tried wiping cache partition but is doesn't help. Please advice whether wiping data/factory reset will delete the data from internal SD card - I am afraid to lose the photos.

Please advice what should I do to extract data (photos) in my situation?

Thanks in advance to everyone.

Can you please explain - I'm new in this. I can enter fasrboot mode, the status is FAILBootloader locked. What should I do next?

Default wiping

I don't think that anything can help you except that tool because as you are saying that USB debugging is not enabled

before using device too much, quick go to galaxy nexus general section here, and find thread "internal data recovery, yes we can"
you might be able to recover deleted photos.
the way it works when you delete things, is it just tells os that the space isnt being used, so the actual data might still be there and some may still be recoverable.
it is quite a process though. good luck
