    Default Help with recovering SMS messages from water damaged Droid Pro

    Hi there. I'm going to try to keep this brief, because there's a lot going on.
    Basically, my friend used to have a Droid Pro. She wants some important texts off the phone.. Problem is, she dropped the phone in water and it's messed up. This was some time ago, so it's dry now.
    When she gave it to me, it was hanging at the red Motorola logo for about 3-5 minutes, then going into the bootloader with a BATTERY LOW, CANNOT PROGRAM error.
    So I bought her a new battery and charged it up using a friend's old Droid 1. Now, I get BATTERY OK, OK TO PROGRAM. Now, I have absolutely no experience with ever rooting a phone or anything like that. So I looked up online and found RSD Lite 6.1.5, and the SBF file DROIDPRO 2.26.20. I flashed it, and the RSD screen said PASS.
    However, when I reboot the phone now, I get a (now black-and-white) Motorola logo for about 5 minutes, then a bootloader with BATTERY OKAY again. I tried wiping the cache from the recovery menu with no result.
    My question is, is there any way I can get into the phone without a factory reset? It looks like I have to do that to get the phone working, but if I do that I wipe the phone, which removes the purpose of saving the SMS messages.
    Thanks for reading, and I really appreciate any comments on the matter.

    I have no idea how to help you, but you should post this in another section. Maybe the razr maxx hd section. Those guys are really knowledgeable about this kind of thing, and that forum is read by a lot of people. Just a tip. Good luck!
