If this isn't where this goes I apologize. It is a communications topic of sorts since it's a cell phone.

Friday my wife's Motorola RAZR maxx hd went dead while listening to pandora. She plugged it in and restarted it and it stops in a boot loop at 'the eye'. I have tried hard booting, booting in recovery and everything else I can think of. I even took it apart and physically removed the battery cable for an hour. It doesn't load far enough for device manager to pick it up.

I figure if I wiped it, it would probably function or if I used adb to flash a stock system image it would work.... but she had wedding pictures on there she desperately wants to recover even if the phone is trash. Sooooooo... thoughts? Suggestions? I've called tech support and a lot of others but they say it's impossible. I know that isn't the case.

I'm not opposed to a chip-off recovery but I'd prefer this be a last resort.
