but i need to know is it possible to access the device with it stuck in a boot loop to pull off and to back up externally some needed files and or folder.
and if so how is it done???? i do know that linux and android dont play well together and this must be done from Windows. machine ..
thanks .. and cheers
The locked bootloader is going to prevent most of what you want to do.
You could try booting stock recovery, wipe cache and reboot.
