    Hello everyone,
    i was installing a new wallpaper on my iphone 4. I was restarting. The apple logo showed up, but wouldnt go away for about 2 minutes. It took me about 1-2 minutes anyway to get to my unlock screen anyways, so i wasnt worried...then i came back after 10 minutes...still the same apple logo. Its been like this for over an hour. When i plug it into itunes, it says my phone is in recovery mode and i need to restore it.

    my last backup was a month ago...i have many pictures that i cannot loose since then:

    1. how to do i get out of this loop, without having to restore my phone?
    2. is there a way where i can save all my pictures to my desktop from my iphone 4, so i will have everything since the backup, restore my phone with 1 month old backup, then upload the new pictures from my desktop?

    Please help. I cannot afford to lose those pictures.

    If you can't kick out of recovery, you screwed yourself over.

    BTW, if the pics were important, then why didn't you back them up the first chance you had? :confused:
