    I have an S5, I rooted it about 2 years ago because I didn't like the lollipop firmware upgrade back then, and I went back to KitKat. I haven't done any firmware upgrades since then, and just used the phone normally.

    Yesterday my battery died and when I charged it and tried to turn on the phone, I got directly into this recovery mode :

    S5[rooted] suddenly stuck in recovery loop, possible to save data?-9fp11w.jpg

    "Reboot system" option doesn't work, just takes me back there in a loop, and I didn't dare to try anything else yet besides taking off the battery for a few hours and inserting it again.

    Problem is I can't access the phone with my USB cable, the mtp drivers always fail to install, and Samsung Kies doesn't recognize the phone.

    Is there ANY way to save my data, or do I have no chance? If I were to factory reset it, are there any programs that could recover deleted data with any reliability? Contacts, photos, apps, etc.

    Thanks a lot for the help.

    Try, "Wipe cache partition", in Recovery Mode that is shown in your post and then reboot your phone.
