How can I recover my iPhone 4 without restoring? It went into the recover mode while I was updating it.

I think part of the problem is my memory space had been exceeded. I own a 8 gb, but it had about 8.2 according to itunes. I was going to delete some pictures and videos after updating, but it never came back. Now it's just a screen with the usb pointing to itunes.


I've tried:

  • Holding the home button and power button for 10-15 seconds
  • iRecovery
  • TinyUmbrella
  • RecBoot
  • Crying
  • Pleaing


However, as soon as the "reboot" apple appears for a couple seconds, the recover screen comes back (usb->itunes).



Can anyone help me? I have family pictures that I don't want to delete.



iPhone 4, iOS 6.1.2, Verizon iPhone
