Re: Samsung Galaxy S2 Went Down The Toilet
Sorry if I'm just being dense, but did it start up or not? You mentioned it startup up and getting warm, but then you asked how to get it working temporarily. I'm probably just confused.

You contacts and calendar should be synced to you Google account, your app downloads/purchases are remembered in the Play Store/Amazon App store. Emails are stored in the cloud. If you're not using Chrome you might also lose your bookmarks.
Loosing app data is usually the big thing that everyone is concerned about, but if you're not rooted there's no way to back that stuff up. If the phone is starting up, you can try to root, install Titanium Backup, and save your app data. If you need a crash course in Titanium Backup, read this: [HOW-TO] TiBu The Easy Way!
