    I have a Bell Mobility Galaxy S Vibrant I9000m. For some reason today, it won't successfully boot. I have not rooted, unlocked, etc. I can boot it into recovery mode volume/home/power, but before I try a hard reset, I'd like to get the photos and videos of my son's birthday off. I believe the default of those apps is to save to phone.

    I am able to connect to ADB, I think. Well, it connected to something.

    Please someone help me save my data.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    If I do a factory reset, do the pictures taken from the camera survive? I'm not sure where the camera app saves its files. It seems that the Galaxy has three storages, phone storage, internal SD and external SD. What is the default location for saving camera pictures. It's not in the external since I was able to check that on my PC.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    I'm in the same boat. Bell GT-I9000M. I really don't care if I have to reinstall apps and fix settings...I just want to save about 10 days of photos.

    Greg,
    If you can connect to ADB then why not use the 'Pull & Push' commands to transfer the files from the phone to Memory card.
    There's a list of all ADB commands here
