SM-G986U Stuck at Verizon Logo

I have a Samsung Galaxy s20+ 5G Model SM-G968U VZW variant. The phone powers on, goes past the Samsung Logos and then gets stuck with the Verizon Logo on the screen with the dots moving beneath it. I have left the phone like that and it runs for hours until it eventually shuts off (it gets very hot while it's running.) I am able to boot into Recovery Mode and Download Mode. I have NOT been able to boot into Safe Mode no matter what I try.

What I have done so far:

Booted into Recovery Mode and Cleared Cache Partition
Booted into Recovery Mode and "Repaired Apps"
Flashed latest stock ROM using instructions from the following thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...e-links-and-flashing-discussion-here.4054629/

Most important to me is to get the data which is on the phone. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.
