Default [Q] Stuck on Boot Animation and can't mount /data

Hey guys,

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 6.0.4.3). 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?

Thanks,
Ninja!

Yes wipe /data /cache is required to flash custom roms.
Try to fastboot boot recovery.img and see if it loads /data, and remember to check your bootloader version (not z20i)

Ok, I tried that using the CWM touch recovery image that I had but it still didn't work. My bootloader version is Z30d.

Fixed it by flashing stock ROM.
