I am in the middle of trying to understand the correct procedure to recover my data from a phone that went into a bootloop.
- I installed android sdk, with adb tools.
- Also installed ODIN (although I don't know how to use it for now)
- Following commands I managed to perform and stuck on the last one, mounting sdcard
As I feel, that my phone data can be retrieved. Because I can still go into recovery mode, odin mode, can see the battery charging. Also able to detect the phone as MTP device in device manager although it doesn't show up under my computer as a portable device...
What are the steps should I follow to get rid of this bootloop and recover my data? If adb command can mount my sdcard, doesn't it mean there's a way to recover the data?
In recovery mode I can see two options: 1. update from adb 2. update from external storage I have already taken out my external sdcard, so I won't lose data in it along the built in sdcard. Here update from sdcard means built in card or external? When I chose the 2nd option, I get the following error
E: failed to mount /sdcard <No such file or directory>
