[Q] Yet another boot looped N4, tried all, need expert help to recover user files..
I have been using the stock 4.4.4 for a while with some occasional crashes and reboots in Skype. Then one day, when I turned on my device, the boot loop struck out of the blue! I had only installed some apps, nothing ROM related was changed.
I need some expert help with recovering my user files (some images in non standard folders, game saves etc..)
*The device is stuck at the circle logo and won't boot up.
*The boot loader is unlocked, USB debugging is enabled and the device was rooted before with version 4.2, upgraded to stock after that at least twice and lost root.
*When connected to PC, auto driver loading fails with MTP but I hear a USB connection sound when I turn on and off the phone. Although, the device is not recognized in "My computer". I see an "Android Device" and/or "android bootloader interface" in Device Manager.
What I tried:
*Tried wugfresh's toolkit and re-installed all google drivers but when I run adb/fasboot commands from within the toolkit, my device is not listed in either list. I get a blank list of devices.
* I can get to the recovery mode in stock boot loader after the "No data" screen and tried wiping user cache, did no good.
What I would like to achieve:
* Ideally I would like to be able to boot into the system without losing any user data and run my backup app and/or connect via USB to backup files on PC.
* If above wouldn't be possible, accessing files externally would also do as a last resort.
Any help is appreciated!
