I had problems with random restarts since a while, and i had to put my device on a loading cable to interrupt the restart loop it was in. This sunday, i got this restart loop, but then got the error message “Cannot load Android system. Your data may be corrupt.” with the options to try again (which results in an restart loop and eventually the error again) or to do a factory data reset, which is my very last option because i really don’t want to lose all my data. So i googled a bit and got to this article ✏ How to use TWRP without flashing it (e.g. for Backup), tried the steps myself and got into twrp on my device, the screen where i could choose “backup” and “recovery” etc. I tried the backup button and chose my data file which is roughly 8gb and the on-device storage option, because i don’t have a big enough sd card. But the leftover storage on my device was too small, so i chose to buy a sdcard on monday and left my phone in twrp mode on the cable of my computer. when i came home from work the next day, the device didn’t have any power left, because i closed my laptop and forgot my device wouldn’t charge that way. So i took it back on a power cable and it started this loop where it only shows the very first fairphone screen for a few seconds, then shuts down and after a few seconds the fairphone screen again and so on. So i tried to get into twrp anyway and i can get my phone into the fastboot mode, but when i try to boot it with my twrp image, it shuts down and starts in this fairphone screen loop again.
Is there any way i can stop this and get hold of my data? I already have a new fairphone 4, but i haven’t had any time to do the settings and transfer my data from my old to my new phone, so my biggest concern is to, in any way, get my data from this old device to the new one. That the old one is broken and can’t be used anymore, i don’t care about. Does anyone have any idea?
