Default [Q] recover data - phone softbricked

My Note 2 froze on me yesterday while using it and then restarted. However, it stopped at the Samsung Logo and never proceeded to boot back up. I removed the battery several times and attempted to restart to no avail. Phone is still not proceeding past Samsung logo. Phone has been rooted with jedix16 using a perseus alpha kernel. Anyhow, the most recent nandroid backups I have are from several months ago. I did manage to take a backup after the phone became bricked but not sure if that will do me any good. Is there any way to extract data from the backup?

The files in the cwm folder are .dup and .img files. The only data file is data.ext4.dup. Am I hosed as far as grabbing any recent data is concerned?

Thanks in advance

You can use adb.exe to pull data if you can get into download mode
