Default 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!

Get a stock rom from Samfirmware, AndroidFirmwares.net or Samsung-Updates.com, flash it with Odin following instructions in thread stickied near top of Q&A titled 'Flash stock firmware...'. Clean slate. You shouldn't lose your stuff, but there are never guarantees with this or even that this will definitely fix your phone & enable it to boot normally (it shouldn't & it should though).
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Probably the best thread ever posted on XDA
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?
Donate to you ?? Bahahaaaaahahahahahahaaahahaha !!!

well loosing data is something that i've experienced alot of times (my case i9100g)
i guess flashing the clean stock rom will help out.. but recently when my friend messed up his s2 i9100 i flashed the stock through odin which made him all the data its uncertain whether you loose your data or not.. fingers crossed flash the stock you may or may not loose data
