    Not sure about all data. But if you connect the iPhone to a pc can you not copy the photos like a USB drive? As for other data, is your account a Gmail account? If yes, then email, Calendar and Contacts will be restored once you add your account back to your iPhone.

    As for text messages and the likes, that could be a problem...

    I myself do not connect to a wire ever, except for charging of course....

    But i would suggest using an iCloud back up to restore. Even OS updates I do wireless.

    iphone recovery mode Recovery Mode is what your iPhone goes into when you are doing a standard iOS upgrade or restore, but you may want to put your iPhone into recovery mode for other reasons (often related to a jailbreak).

    Remember, Recovery Mode is different than DFU mode because DFU mode bypasses the bootloader which allows for things like downgrading firmware. You can not downgrade firmware with Recovery Mode, you can only upgrade or restore.
    Enter iPhone Recover Mode

    Here’s how to enter into recovery mode, this works on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch:
    1.Disconnect the USB cable from your iPhone, but leave the other side connected to your Mac or PC
    2.Launch iTunes
    3.Press and hold down the Home and Sleep/Power button on the top of the iPhone to turn off the iPhone
    4.Press and continue to hold the Home button while you reconnect the USB cable to your iPhone, this will cause the iPhone to turn on
    5.Continue to hold the Home button until an alert message in iTunes informing you that an iPhone in recovery mode has been detected, like the screenshot below:

    iphone recover mode detected

    Your iPhone is now in recovery mode. If you have not launched iTunes, you will see the familiar screen of the USB cable pointing at the iTunes logo signaling to connect the iPhone to iTunes to start recovery.

    Once you’re in recovery mode, you can either restore the iPhone or adjust the firmware as necessary

    After restoring or upgrading firmware, your iPhone will automatically reboot and exit recovery mode on it’s own recoversdata. com

    Check this article to get rid of iPhone recovery mode:


    If you did not create any backup then, I would advice you to backup all your iPhone data to computer first. I assume you can still copy your photos and video simply by connecting your phone to computer. To backup SMS, contacts and other data, you may try using third party programs.

    Hope it helps!
