    Hi everyone, I really need your help! o_O

    A pair of months ago I bought my first smartphone, so I am quite the noob. Suddently last week it decided to restart every 12-13 seconds (literally), as long as I don't remove the battery, and I can't find a solution on the internet. Of course I could give it to the support, but they warned me that by this way I'll lose all my data, while I'd like to save at least some. On the internet I found a couple of people with my same problem and no answer (if we exclude the "I left it in its frenzy the whole night, when I woke it was resolved", which in my case mysteriously didn't work) can you help me?

    DETAILS - Samsung Galaxy mini 2 GT-S6500, no SD

    THE INCIDENT - I was playing a game when it freezed (no answer from any button short of the 8 seconds forced shut down), as it had already happened, so I pressed the "off" button and started waiting, since it usually worked; I fell asleep, and when I woke up the screen was on and black. When I restarted it manually it started the evil madness. I had not installed any new app, or so I remember.

    FAILED TREATMENTS
    - Can't enter recovery mode by holding Volume up (+), Volume down (-) and Home button and then power on the phone.

    Your device in bootloop and cant enter recovery mode.

    As you new to this, allow me to share some understand about bootloop: http://www.note2forum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=20381

    Not sure in this state how to save the data required

    Can it enter Download Mode? If yes, need flash (install) firmware.

    You need to find out:
    - Your phone model.
    - Firmware version base on your phone model.
    - Install correct driver at PC for your phone.
    - Download and install PC Odin (Odin is tool/utilize for Samsung devices).
    - From your phone go to Download Mode, connect to PC and flash firmware via PC Odin.

    Need to google and have some reading to understand. If difficult for you to understand as above, better to bring it to service center as it will cause more damage if you do it wrongly.

    Hope you can resolve and maybe someone experience will chip in for more assistance.
