I have problem with my Samsung, I've bee using it for some time with CM 11 - currentlly there is latest snapshot installed.
Anyway phone started showing some issues few days ago - but today it is just stuck on the boot.
I can get either into download mode and ClockWorkMod Recovery, but can't get ADB to connect to pull files I need.
I didn't also find my photos in CWM backup files (although I cannot extract all of them).
In CWM I can mount USB Storage - but this is external card, where there are no photos. They are in /sdcard/0/, but I can't force it to mount this as USB Storage.
What can I do? Any help and hints appreciated.

@Delwing: you can try to replace CWM by TWRP and access sdcard0 by its built-in filemanager. But probably your system or partitions are gone, then it won't work either.

When I go to install zip in CWM I can browse the directories I need, so I will give it a shot. Thanks for suggestion.
