    After upgrading an iPhone 4 to iOS 7.1.2 (from iOS 6) the iPhone enters (looping) recovery mode asking for iTunes. iTunes only offers to recover to factory settings - this is not an option (no backup).

    I have tried TinyUmbrella, EaseUs MobiSaver and RecBoot (and probably others), but none of these is either able to put it out of recovery mode or recover the data. When using e.g. TinyUmbrella to exit recovery mode, the iPhone simply reboots and reenters recovery mode. When using EaseUs MobiSaver and putting the iPhone into DFU, the iPhone reboots when MobiSaver tries to access the data (scan) and reenter recovery mode.

    Any suggestions?
