Default recover from boot loop without losing data?

Is there a way to recover from a boot loop without doing a reset that wipes out all my data? I have pictures and such that I foolishly didn't back up. Right now, my streak 7 is stuck going between the static Dell log and the animated one. If it matters, my Streak 7 came with the Honeycomb update installed.

Thanks!

Default [FIXED] recover from boot loop without losing data?

The factory reset actually fixed the problem and did not wipe out the partition with the photos from the onboard camera. Even though it said it would wipe out "user data", this just referred to the apps. After factory reset, I just had to redownload the apps from the amazon app store and google market.

Yes, that's correct, the pics were still there.
I went ahead and did a full reset afterwards to get a clean device.
Peace

Before you go hard-core: have you checked with the boot-loop tag-wiki for possible remedy? Have you tried to remove the battery for a few minutes, then re-insert and boot up again? Have you cleaned up cache and Dalvik-cache from CWM? And I think the best way to recover losing pictures isusing recovery programs, here I recommend one:

If you are in a boot-loop and didn't not backup or save data prior to that then you are at a loss. Do you know what may have caused the boot-loop? Did it start happening after downloading an app or other file?

Whatever files were saved on the sd card (minus app data) will still be present. Log back into your Google account and if you originally selected "keep device backed-up with Google" then you should have apps start to install once you get the phone setup. Otherwise, you can log into the Play Store via computer and see a list of app downloads and boot Android into recovery mode.

Yeah, I'm finding it less and less necessary to use back up apps or nandroids to back up my device. Practically everything is stored in my Google account now, and it's all fairly automated when I factory reset. In fact, a factory reset can oftentimes fix many (most?) problems that a user might have. I don't think it's something to be afraid of.

That said, this thread is pretty old... :-p
