So I accidently updated my hackintosh and when my computer restarted, it is stuck on the white loading screen. This is my build:

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/building-a-customac-customac-mini-2012.75573/

It is the first one, customac mini. I have the 1TB HDD from that build. My current OS is Maverick. Can't remember exactly which version. I am a complete noob as I have not dealt with any of the installation stuff since I installed it back in 2013. Is there any way to recover all my data and/or revert back?

Did you save your UniBeast USB as an emergency booter?
Do you have a Time Machine backup? Bootable clone on a different drive?

Do you have access to a Mac to create a new UniBeast USB? Also need another HDD / SSD / USB drive to install OS X on so you do not touch your existing drive.

You could also try booting with -x boot-arg to see if it is a kext that is causing the problem.
