I was attempting to root my phone so I unlocked the bootloader (using fastboot oem unlock) and flashed CWM recovery (using fastboot flash recovery <filename>.img using version 188.8.131.52). Now, that all worked but when I tried to boot into Android, it got stuck on the boot animation and when I try to mount /data in CWM. I can't do backups because of that problem (namely, it gives me "can't mount backup path") and I don't want to lose all my data. Is there any way of saving this/if I flash a custom ROM, will it erase that data?
