    Welcome to AC
    Unfortunately the only way to recover the photos would be from the "normal" mode. What happens when you try to boot up your device?

    Have you tried wiping the cache partition when you're in recovery mode?

    I'd suggest booting into download mode and flashing the stock ROM then. Let me get the guide for that
