My friend has an SM-G900A and it is stuck in download mode. While I am sure I can reinstall stock using ODIN to make the phone usable again, he never backed up his contacts...

Is there any way to recover them while stuck in download mode?

I can't access recovery to attempt a cache wipe either, as when it goes into recovery it defaults right back to download mode. He says he wasn't downloading anything, update or otherwise, he just rebooted his phone and then the issue started.

I have tried scouring the webs, but most direct me to software that requires $$, or has a free trial, or the remove battery trick, some have pointed to the S7 and removing the charging jack...This is merely an older s5 for the love of god lol
