[Q] bootlooping - any way to recover without wipe/reset?
Would appreciate any advice, please.
My daughter's Nexus 7 Wifi (grouper/nakasi) is bootlooping.
[Yesterday, an app wouldn't install from Play Store (error code -24); went to go to Settings, to clear Play Store cache, but Settings wouldn't open. Rebooted, now it's bootlooping]
The device is still locked, so I'm obviously very limited in what I can do. Is there any way at all I can recover things, without having to do a wipe?
Failing that, I'd like to at least save her app data, and SD contents, before a wipe.
I've tried clearing /cache from (stock) Recovery, no change.
I can connect with adb, but only when in Recovery sideload. I can't connect with adb when it's bootlooping.
I can't flash a factory image, with wipe disabled, since it's still locked.
I tried to sideload an update, but the update fails, since they're all from->to, and it is already on the latest 4.4.2.
I tried mtpfs, but it won't mount.
Anything else I can try, please, before resorting to wiping, and losing all her app data and any pics she may have taken?
