I have a note 3 (SD version) and after a few reboots it got stuck on boot at the samsung logo. Because at that time I didnt to that much with the phone, I just wiped from recovery and everything was fine again.
I installed apps and even tried rebooting several times, which was fine.
Just now, I rebooted because there was a strange problem with the wifi and now the phone is stuck again on samsung logo - after I spent hours reinstalling and reconfiguring stuff.
I can enter download mode, I can enter recovery, for now I didnt manage to boot in safe mode, but maybe I am doing it wrong (I tried this).
Is there _any_ way I can get at my data (apps, settings, blabla) without just wiping again. Why is this happening!
