[My device is a Sprint Galaxy S III, unrooted on STOCK 4.1 (with multi-view)] So the previous night I plugged my phone into the charger as normal and went to bed. Strangely, when I woke up, my phone was turned off. Curious, I went to turn it back on and waited for it to boot back up, only to have it freeze up in the middle of opening an app. I wasn't worried at this point, but after a battery reseating and restart, it happened again. This time, it froze up on the 'Galaxy S III' boot logo. I tried multiple times to restart, swapping batteries, waiting, and managed somehow to get it to recovery mode. There, I managed to wipe cache and attempt to restart the phone once more. Nothing--it was still frozen on the boot logo. After waiting a while, I tried to get it back into recovery mode, popping out the battery whenever it froze. To my horror, this time, pressing and holding the power button did not get a response from the device. Mind you in my (roughly) year's worth of time with this phone, I had never dropped it or subjected it to any form of shock or damage. Seriously--the phone looks out-of-the-box-brand-new. Now the device is bricked(?) I'm thinking it's some sort of hardware defect, but I'm confused because it happened out of nowhere--simply overnight. Nothing I do seems to elicit a response from it and I even tried swapping in a freshly charged battery. I really don't care about most of the data on the internal storage (cloud sync ftw!) but there are a ton of photos inside that I would give anything to save. Is there any way I could save them? I'd appreciate any input! TL;DR: Out of nowhere, my 1yr old GSIII suddenly started acting strange and after some troubleshooting bricked itself. Need photos on internal storage.
