Default [Q] How to backup individual files on I9000 with broken ROM?


My Samsung Galaxy S I9000, which runs on the GamerzRom (can't specify the version, sorry for that) doesn't want to turn on properly anymore - it just stays on the blinking "X" screen, so I guess it has problems with running the system. Normally, I'd just wipe data and cache and reinstall the whole system, but now I have some important files on my phone and I can't lose them. I'd like to backup my files and reinstall the system, but I don't know how to do the proper backup (it would be easier if I was able to do it when the phone loads system properly, but it doesn't).

How to backup these things? For example, notes are important and I need to have them when I reinstall my system.
I can only run the phone on the ClockWorkMod or Download mode.

You can make a backup with CWM and later pull out files from the backup with 7-zip.

If you don't know; you can mount USB mass storage with CWM (Mount and storage = > Mount USB storage).
