Exclamation [Q] Can't get past Recovery Mode - Need Help!

After rebooting for a cyanogenmod update which failed to install, my phone will not boot into Cyanogenmod - only clockwork.

I have precious data on the phone that I need to extract, mainly pictures.

ADB only recognizes the phone as "offline" and I cannot pull any files from it.

Any suggestions? Thanks a lot guys.

did you cleared cache?

When you are trying to use adb your phone is in cwm recovery?

Yes I've cleared the cache and rebooted with the same results - just boots back into Recovery Mode.

And yes, when I am using ADB I am in Recovery Mode. I can't get past that.

Do you have a nandroid backup on your phone?

Also is all your drivers properly set and updated on your cumputer? Can you post a screenshot of Windows devices manager with the phone info?
Are you using the original usb cable? Some usb cables only have GND and 5V pins (no data). Also be sure to use usb 2.0 and a usb port directly from your motherboard (not in front of your computer) and don't use any usb hub.

Well I got it recognized by ADB now.

What is the file structure like in order to pull files from the phone?

What commands can I use in ADB to pull the main sd directory?

oh and when you are in bootloader, is fastboot working?

Code:
fastboot devices
does it says fastboot usb or only fastboot (in red)

I nerver used adb to pull files so idk. Maybe somthing like ''adb pull /sdcard/ C:\something'' ?

maybe you can find here

or use twrp to make a backup of your data, then pull the backup to your computer

Thanks man. That helped.

If anyone ever finds themselves in this situation, make sure your SDK packages are updated to the latest Android OS version. This is why ADB was recognizing my device as offline.
Also, running the command adb pull /sdcard/ C:<somewhereonyourPC> will pull all the data from your HTC one.

oh nice to see adb pull /sdcard/ C:<somewhereonyourPC> was the right syntax

For the sdk packages you should always make sure it is updated before doing anything to the phone. Same for drivers. An ''adb devices'' and ''fastboot devices'' won't hurt before messing with the phone to make sure everything set correctly.

Now I presume you'll be ok to flash your rom again?1
