Default [Q] Getting data off the phone

So my phone is in a bootloop. I flashed CWM recovery via Odin to try to mount the internal storage since i have some things i need to recover before flashing new rom. in CWM under "mounts and storage" i tried everything, but nothing would show up in a computer. Also, mounting system says "Error mounting system" and adb devices doesn't recognize my device now with CWM. it did with stock recovery though, when put in adb mode

edit: flashed original revocery, got adb working, found some adbfileexplorer.jar file from the forums, that shows my device and some files/folders, eg /efs, /preload , cache etc. so they are not the files i'm looking for.
And when writing adb shell in cmd, i get "- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -" error

Try philz recovery and aroma file manager to access the data partition.

A sudden boot loop in normal use usually means one or more of the partitions are corrupt, so you may not be able to access data.
Note: This quote doesn't automatically apply to everyone, decide for yourself if it might apply to you.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Ok well now i got to use adb and via command "adb pull /" i pulled everything there was (This is the right command to do it, right?)
but only two folders, sys and tmp were pulled, none of which contain any relevant data, it would appear
