    Hello! So my phone is stuck in a boot loop, and I want to get some files off it before i do a factory reset. I am having issues with the cmd prompt aspect - any help would be so appreciated!

    About my Samsung S2
    Model # GT-I9100
    I am unsure of android version, build number etc as the phone only starts in system recovery <3e>.

    I have been following another wonderful post (that the forum wont let me post as a link yet...), and have downloaded SDK Manager, started the phone in system recovery. Unfortunately, my version of sysrecovery doesn't have a Mount & Storage menu item. I only have these options; reboot system now; apply update from ADB; apply update from external storage; Wipe data/factory reset; wipe cache partition; apply update from cache.

    So, I skipped this step, which the post said might be possible, and attempted to pull all data (I don't remember all the file locations of the files I want, so will try and pull them all and go through what i need.

    I attempted to use in cmd prompt the following:
    adb pull [-p] [-a] <remote> [<local>]
    I fiddled with the syntax, until this seemed to get more of a result:

    C:\adt-bundle-windows-x86-20140702\sdk\platform-tools>adb pull / \C:\adt-bundle-windows-x86-20140702\sdk\platform-tools\copied
    BUT, I got the following list scrolling forever on "skipping special file", as seen here

    Any ideas on where to go from here?
