    Hey guys...

    So I have a lot of photos and videos and such on this iPhone. today, I was unlocking (ie, slide to unlock, not carrier unlock) my phone when it restarted and got stuck at the Apple screen. It won't mount when I connect it to my computer, not even when it's in recovery mode. I've tried to use irecovery and while I've done the commands about 10 times, it still won't boot up.

    I have so many photos on that device that I'd like to not lose... something like 1,000 photos. I thought that the iTunes backup included the camera roll, but it doesn't...

    My question: is there any way to get my files of of my iPhone? I just really want to access the DCIM directory and backup my photos to my laptop. If I can't, I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and restore. :(

    Thanks all!
    Mark

    OpenSSH. Depending on when during the boot sequence it's having problems, SSH might still be working.

    Do you have an iP4?

    you said you were unlocking, so I am guessing that you were already JBed.

    Did you installed SSH?

    SSH server can start even if the UI hasn't, I've connected to many iphone while on stuck on the Apple's logo when SSH was installed. You can try that.

    Also try to put the device on DFU mode and them use TinyUmbrella and use the "Kick device out recovery" botom.

    OpenSSH is installed but it's not connected to a network here.

    Hey, thank you. I do have an iPhone 4. I'm not unlocking (I'm on AT&T) but I am already JB'd, yes. I do have SSH installed, but there's no wifi network around here it's connected to. I'll try TinyUmbrella, thank you!

    To be honest, when this happened to me, this was the best advice ever given after searching for hours on Google. Lol.

    I tried using my Windows computer too, and it didn't work.

    Did you put the phone in DFU mode and then restored?

    Well, I don't want to restore yet, since I want to get my photos off of it.

    Once you hopefully get this sorted out, backing up regularly will alleviate this from happening again.

    With iTunes 10, syncs are very quick.

    Not sure if it will work on a phone that's stuck, but PhoneView has saved my rear more than once when it comes to retrieving files that iTunes can't seem to find:

    Hopefully one of the suggestions from here will work to get the phone up without a restore.
