[Q] S2 bricked? so noob :(
I have owned my samsung galaxy s2 for years now without a problem ( never rooted or anything like that)
As you can probably already tell im not very tech savy. Unfortunetly just recently my phone will not turn on, or to be more precise, it gets stuck on the samsung logo whilst trying to boot up, a quick google search has told me my phone is bricked? I Can access download mode and recovery mode by holding different buttons ( again google)
I dont even care about the phone because its so old now, all i care about is the 500 or so photos I have taken since last downloading the photos off the phone.
From what I have read I need to use ODIN3 or some type of software to basically reinstall the phones software and make it work again but there are a million different sites/videos/advice threads out there and im not sure which one to follow.
most of them start by trying to "wipe user data" from recovery mode? does this mean my photos will be lost?
any help (including just pointing me in the right direction) will be greatly appreciated!
