    Hello everyone, my iphone went out of battery last night and i only decided to charge it this morning, but now every time i try to turn it on i get stuck on the apple boot logo. And i have to push both power and home buttons for it to turn on.
    I havent used Itunes for a long time so i dont have any recent backup.
    Is there any ways to fix this without having to restore and lose all my holidays pictures and stuff ?
    I tried different things like using redsnow but without success so far.
    Thanks a lot :)

    I once had a similar problem, and the only way to recover them was to load a custom ramdisk on there which enabled AFC2, so that I could browse my iPhone from my computer. I, unfortunately, do not have the skills to do that so I contacted ih8sn0w, payed him $80 to do it via teamviewer and it worked. :)

    Thanks for your answer but im still stuck on this apple logo.
    I just dont dare to restore it and lose about 500 pics and my jailbreak :/
    Anyone else has a solution? Stupid me not to save my pics pfff.
    i read something about ifunbox, but it doesnt recognize my phone since it is not on.
    Thank you, im really annoyed :(

    When push comes to shove, you can restore back to 5.1.1 if you have the SHSH blobs, but as you said it would result in you losing holiday pictures (One of the reasons I like photostream)

    Download DiskAid and then plug your iPhone into computer. If your lucky it will give you access to the iPhone file system and you'll be able to get your pictures.
