    Help is greatly appreciated, thank you in advance for your time.

    My situation:
    • I have no custom mods, apps, et cetera.
    • I am stuck in a boot loop.
    • I entered recovery mode, cleared the cache, but did not do a factory reset.
    • I get the "OMAP4440 Device Unplugged" error message.

    As well, I have spoken to a few techies, and have essentially be told that this error happens with the S3, and that there is nothing I can do.

    What I want: to retrieve my data files, media files, pictures, app data, app file, et cetera.

    There might be a way to reflash just the stock parts of the phone to get your device to work again! This requires a fair amount of knowledge of odin flashing and image files! If the problem Is actually Hardware, then there is not going to be a way to recover your files! :( If you wish to try and complete this, I would be willing to help you out!

    I hope this helps answer your question.

    Thank you, but I would rather just hold onto the brick until I can recover the flashdrive :/
