I am currently trying to repair a soft bricked(stuck in boot loop) Samsung Galaxy S2. I am trying to save the info (contacts,sms,pictures..etc).
Would using Odin to flash CWM Recovery and doing a nandroid backup and then restoring the phone to factory settings.
Would it somehow save everything in the internal memory and fix the phone?
Please, If you can Update me with some info, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

Might be possible, if you backup, reinstall a rom based the same update you're on and then do an advanced restore of just /data, Really depends on what made it soft brick in the first place though. You're pictures won't be touched either way, but contacts, messages, etc are a different story. Hopefully you had your phone synced to Google to backup the contacts at least...

Try This.
on CWM , you can do a backup.. then flash your previous rom before you get softbricked.
reboot.
cwm again,
Backup and restore >> andvance restore >> restore data

this usually works with me..
