I have Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc LT15a and suddenly the phone started to reboot itself. I'm assuming it's the memory is too low to load the OS main screen. Now, I have important data on the phone internal memory under the app called NoteEverything and I'm desperately trying to retrieve it somehow. Is there a way to start up the Xperia Arc in safe mode and delete some apps to free up memory? OR should I open the phone and disconnect some hardware maybe this will free up memory? How can I copy the ROM info which is the internal memory of the phone to another device or extra storage?

What should I do, what do you suggest? I am willing to do the impossible to have it up and running so at least I get my data backup!

p.s., I don't want to use the PC companion and delete my internal ROM coz it will delete everything and I don’t want this in the first place.

I'm a little shocked that the app doesn't have a built-in way to back up its data. –  Al E. Jul 26 '12 at 14:34
I'm not familiar with this device. Does it have an SD card? Were you storing your data there? If so, you can probably drop that into a SD card reader (or another phone) and pull the data off that way. –  Al E. Jul 26 '12 at 14:35
@user267 NoteEverything has backup functionality included, and does backups to SDCard. At least with the Pro version. As I went straight to buy it, I cannot speak for the free version. –  Izzy Feb 13 '13 at 19:11
@Sam Did you try the safe-mode? It is available for your device (just google it: hard to find how to enter it, most people are concerned to get out again): when booting, simply hold the left and right button below the screen and press on until it loaded. (source) –  Izzy Feb 13 '13 at 19:17
