    I had been having trouble with my SD card not being able to be read, it happens every now and then, already had to replace one. So i went to format the SD card via the setting in MIUI and it froze, so i had to take the battery out to reset it. Well i turned the phone on and it's stuck on the white HTC Incredible boot screen.

    Is there any way I can get back into the phone to grab a couple of pictures that didn't back up? Or do I have to do a complete wipe??

    Try taking the SD card out and booting and report back.

    Same, still stuck. I reformatted the SD card via the PC before i tried to format on the phone, so I thought it was ready to go. So unfortunately i lost my backups :( But not a huge deal, but i just have a few pics in the phone's memory itself, that's all i want.

    But still a no go without the SD card.

    Update:

    So it turns out I was wiser than I thought, lol. I did a back up of my entire SD card to dropbox about a month ago, I have a backup (nandroid) of the phone, with MIUI, from october. If i install this, will i lose my current photos on the phone that i'm trying to get off?

    Yes. Nandroids are an image of your phone's current state. Everything will return back to exactly how it was when the backup was taken.

    Can you get into recovery? If you can, then you can mount the phone's storage and get the files through the adb.

    Use volume up/down to navigate. Power button is back. Track pad is enter/select.

    Go to mounts/storage, mount the system. This should allow you to access emmc/dcim/100MEDIA where your pictures should be stored. This is using the android sdk and adb.
