    Exclamation My Samsung S3 isn't in a reboot loop and I need files

    Oops, title mistake, should say Is in a reboot loop
    I have re-flashed the phone with a stock version (I never did any flashing/rooting before this, but have on a previous phone so I know how). I would just factory reset, but I NEED the videos I recorded today. Is there a way to pull files without booting (I can get recovery and download modes, no option is available for mounting the USB connection like I have read about). It is not in developer mode, and I don't think it would matter if it was because I can't boot past app loading (to my belief). When I flashed the device, it loaded and started "upgrading android" upon completion is said starting apps and then rebooted. If I can't pull files can I remove 3rd party apps.

    Pulling files in ADB would require USB debugging in developer options checked.
    Have you tried pulling the battery for several minutes and rebooted into recovery?

    Yea, I have, I have now flashed CWM recovery to the device because I believe it turns on dev mode automatically, but I have gotten no further than now having a slightly different recovery mode screen, my next step is probably to load a recovery via micro sd, but I'm not sure that's my best option.

    You can try to clear the device's cache in recovery. See if that will help.

    I cleared both caches. Sadly, it didn't do any good.

    Aside from a reset, I don't know what else to suggest.
