HELP! Am I SOL? Please help recover my data! :(
So my unrooted, Jellybean SG2 decided to crap out on me. It's stuck in the dread boot loop! OH NOES! I got a new SG2, so I don't care if my SG2 what software is put on it. I just want my precious data (music, photos, videos). Some said it couldn't be done, but I found this thread on here that said otherwise
Making use of SiyahKernal, it should be possible to mount my SG2 to my laptop. I decided to Odin this puppy up. I wanted to go by the tutorial the other thread posted, so I tried using the Jellybean T-Mobile rom (which my SG2 was using). I used the ROM, for my device, from Samsung Updates
. I made sure to restart my PC, shut down any processes by Kies, etc, etc before starting Odin. When I went to flash the ROM, Odin froze for a good 15 minutes. I decided that nothing was going to happen and unplugged my S2.
So, here I am, stuck with the message, "firmware upgrade encountered an issue in Samsung Galaxy S2." I, somehow, made the problem worse. I just want my data. As you can see, I'm a total noob with this stuff. Please help!
