    Default Can someone point me in the right direction please?

    I have an iPhone 3gs (IOS6) which for one reason or another, too boring to go into, has not been backed up.. ever. (yes I now know it is a mistake!)
    It has now crashed and is stuck in the infinite reboot loop.
    I can now stop this loop and put it into recovery mode but nothing else.
    When it is plugged into iTunes it tells me that it needs to RESTORE the phone and that I will lose all my data
    I have a lot of photos and information on the phone which I need to keep and do not want to lose.
    The phone is not Jailbroken.

    Is there any way of restoring the phone WITHOUT losing any of my data?
    I am more than happy and competent in downloading/using third party programs but I have searched the net and can only find fixes for Jailbroken phones.

    Any help would be gratefully received.

    regards

    Martin

    Hi Martin,

    even if your phone is not jailbroken, if you can enter DFU mode, you can also boot a ramdisk that allows you do download a disk image from the phone (see for example Working iPhone recovery ramdisk with SSH). If it's a 3gs, then it's not even encrypted, and you can hopefully find your photos after mounting the image file. If you need help doing it, you can contact me directly.

    Thanks for getting back to me, Unfortunately I didn't see your reply till today. I tried several other things from the web and eventually found the phone to have a hardware fault. I got it to go into DFU mode and it still did the continuous boot, then in restore it gave me an error 9 code. Further investigation said it was beyond feasible repair, I have got the info via other means and most of the photos too. So I gave up, stopped being cheap, and got a new phone. Thanks again for your advice.
