Hi, as mention on subject matter.

My iPhone4s situation is completely same with
http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1309575
but there is no help on that topic.

My situation is:-
iPhone4s, jailbreak 5.0.1, tried to download cydia material by insanely repo, frozen half way, and now my phone died... after apple logo is the circle loading, forever.... if i charge my phone even thou shutdown, this circle will be there and every 2min the phone will have the "teet" sound (charging sound)

BUT MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS MY FILES
Is there any way to backup files without using itunes? I just format my pc yesterday and did not do any backup (very unlucky for me)

I tried DFU (failed), 10sec home button then plug in (failed), direct back up in itunes (failed), tried charge my phone 2 hour and turn back on (failed) & i do not have tiny umbrella installed.

Thank you very much in advance if you could give me a little advise to solve my problem.
Thank you!

You could try TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery, but in all likelihood, you won't be able to backup your info. Just DFU restore as new.

And yes, you can get it into DFU. Just make sure you hold down the buttons for the proper amount of time. It's not that hard.

Also, you need to make sure you have a fresh download of the latest IPSW (5.1.1 for now) ready to restore to.
