Default [Q] how to extract files without booting into the system

Hi all

I have an emergency matter,

I just updated my cynogenmod to the newest edition through the "in system" updater, then i reboot the phone, my phone stuck at the booting screen!!!! i didn't back up my files since its in the system update, i thought its relatively safe. I can just wipe everything and flash the mod, but I need all the files on the phone.

so is there any way i can explore the files on the phone like an SD directory so i can retrieve my files?

thank you

If they're Images/Video/Songs Then you can do a Restore to factory defaults and Wipe Cache from the recovery and boot it up. Though that'll get your applications removed. Try to do a wipe cache only ..

Have you looked into Aroma file manager? Works through recovery.
