My S2 cannot boot up and keeps showing "Samsung" every time I restart the phone. Tried to wipe all cache partition but didn't work. I wonder if I can get back the data before I try to wipe data/factory default. Thanks?

The last but one trick is to take the phone battery out along with the microSD card. Then, press and hold the power button for at least a minute. This should completely discharge your phone and erase the cache memory of the phone. Insert only the battery back. Turn on your phone. If it works, put the microSD card back. If it does not, then you will need to factory reset your phone.

My Galaxy S4 is frozen and I can't turn it on. I was told to back up the data before I hand the phone back to the provider for a Factory Reset as that will wipe everything. I have been trying to do that but nothing is working because the phone cannot be turned on. I have just returned from overseas last week and have more than a thousand photos on my phone I desperately do not want to lose. HELP? If you can?

My Samsung S2 has lost its OS, can I install a new one using SD card?

I was trying to do a factory reset on the phone I bought second hand and it did not work. I know the phone had been updated by the previous owner. Now it gets to first icon and freezes. The PC will no longer see it and I was wondering if I could replace the OS using the Ext. SD card?

My Samsung Note2 will not reboot and it is stuck on the Verizon logo. I tried removing battery, SIM card, and SD card --replaced, waited and rebooted. And again rebooted to Verizon logo and stays stuck?

Not sure what else to add - need phone to reboot to OS and not lose data.
