    I desperately need someone's help!! My brother installed DarkyROM on my phone and lately my phone has become incredibly unstable and constantly force stopping apps, including Launcher. I had turned my phone off earlier this evening and when I turned it back on, it will not load past the DarkyROM loading page. The bar on the page still moves, but the phone won't boot.

    I'm assuming I will need to do a factory reset but my problem is in the fact that I have no backup of my phone. I'm mostly concerned about my pictures and videos. I need these, but don't know how to be able to get them off my phone safely.

    Someone please help!!!

    Welcome to the forums, Tinkerbelle.
    Sorry to hear of your troubles. I assume you have a custom recovery installed like Clockwork Mod or TWRP? If so you can go into it and perform a factory reset there. It won't erase your photos or videos. If that doesn't work, we can start finding stock firmware you can push to your phone.

    I'm not sure if I have anything like that. I know when I am in the recovery mode, it says Semaphore CWN Revocery v5.5.0.4, not sure if that helps

    I should mention as well that my USB doesn't work anymore either, but that has been an issue for a while and not recent

    UPDATE: I decided to just do a factory reset and my pictures and videos were still there :) It didn't erase them!
