    Default Galaxy S3: My phone doesn't turn on :(

    So I had a ROM and then a new version of the ROM was released so I installed the new version without wiping my phone and now my phone doesn't turn on.
    I turn it on and it shows the "Galaxy S3" logo and then it turns off again.

    I CANT LOSE MY PHOTOS!

    I can still enter recovery mode, but I cant connect my phone to the computer and backup my photos because my phone doesn't turn on.
    I tried doing a back up but it showed an error at 80% or 70% so i just installed it.
    Please what can i do I have MAC by the way so i cant use odin.

    Which recovery are you using? I know through TWRP you can mount your phone so your computer can read it while it's in recovery.

    CWM has the same functions under the 'mounts and storage' option.

    Why don't you just restore the older version of the ROM using the backup file?
