Default Factory reset without losing data on phone sd card.

Hello, many people flash custom roms lately and then want to downgrade or change and sometimes get stuck in bootloops without having a backup, and still want their data back (after flashing a normal firmware via odin)
I have tried this a couple times after being stuck in a bootloop and it worked, and it is to flash CWM6.0.2.8 and factory reset from cwm. No files on the sd card were erased. Hope this will be helpful to anyone.
