    Default Rescue pics from blackra1ned iPhone in recovery mode?

    I was happily using my new blackra1ned iPhone 3GS with 3.1.2. One day I upgraded some packages via Cydia and installed an app (SMS char counter).

    Since then I am in an infinite loop: the iPhone boots into DFU mode, needs tethered boot. I used blackra1n like before and also tried redsn0w, it shows the image and does shut down - but then does not start up again :-(

    I assume that I could just restore the iPhone using iTunes, but I would love to rescue the last weeks of photos before.

    Are the jailbreaking tools like blackra1n and redsn0w able to access the file system of the iPhone to rescue the images? So would it be possible to copy files from iPhone to the PC instead of just telling it to reboot?

    Are there other rescue tools available?

    Cheers

    It is very unlikely the iPhone is in DFU mode. You are confusing DFU and recovery mode. in DFU mode the screen is black but looks brighter than if the phone was off/asleep due to the backlight being on.

    There can be two different causes for your problem. One is blacksn0w and the other is an obscure bug in a Cydia support library. The chances are much higher that you have the blackra1n bug. The solution for this is to leave blackra1n running and your iPhone connected to the computer, the battery will go flat on the iPhone, then it will charge up a bit, turn back on and blackra1n will kick the boot process along.
