I’m italian,please excuse me for english mistakes.
I have an iPhone4 iOS 5.0.1. Last week i’ve made a BackUp with iTunes and then i sand my iphone to assistance. When the iPhone comes back,i’ve tried to add on the last backUp,but IT WAS EMPTY! and the last BackUp is from October,so i’ve lost all my photos!
that photos are very important to me,so i’ve tried some tricks,but i’m NOT expert with computers..
-I have a jailbreak untethered with redsn0w just to try to use a classic recovery program. I’ve istalled with Cydia Open SSh and,on my Pc (windows xp) i’ve installed WinSCP. So I try to connect Iphone with pc with SSh,and seen it works because i can transfer file from iphone to pc and vice versa.
I’ve installed Mobile Terminal by Cydia and,after became “root” I’ve wrote the password “alpine” and I’ve wrote
dd if=/dev/disk0 | ssh username-Computer@indirizzo-IP-Computer ‘dd of=iphone-dump.img’
changing Username@ip computer with mine.
But after press enter it appears ” connection refused” or “Invalid argument”.I thought was a connection error,but i can transfer files with SSH,so i thought it was another error.
-I found on my pc what i think was the deleted failed backup,and with recuva i take back that files but its was encrypted,and i don’t know what to do with. I gathered that files in a folder and tried with backup extractor but it say there is an error with my folder. So I tried to trick iTunes putting my folder into the other backUp folders on pc,but,obviously,it doesn’t works. My folder it’s about 6 Gb and the other are about 13 Gb,but i thought maybe could save just some photos…
- I try to do a scan with a trial version of Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery,after connected with SSH iphone and pc,but i don’t knows if it works,because i can’t complete because it crash,but on the preview i saw MAYBE (’cause it’s very quickly) some of my photos,but i don’t know if this program could read iphone like external Hdisk or something similar just with SSH connection,and before buy the program i want to be sure it could works.
Now i’m giving up,but i don’t wanna to,because that photos is reallyreally important!!!
Please do you have some tricks to suggest to me?
i just want to thanks everyone could try to answer.
Thank you very much,and excuse me again for english,i hope you could understand!!
