    Exclamation [1.1.4] How to restore iPhone and keep Installed Apps?

    hey community!
    I have some weird problems with my iPhone, so i decided to restore it, but i'd like to keep my current content (apps, repo sources, sms, contacts, ringtones, pictures etc)
    is there any step byy step guide on the subject? i tried to search the forum, couldn't find anything close to that...
    i'm planning to restore the iPhone with manually DL-ed firmware via i-Tunes and then use ZiPhone GUI for unlock+jailbrake+activation. after that i will sync back my contacts via iTunes... that's the point where i m stuck...
    what then? how can i put back my apps, sms, ringtones, repos and settings?
    btw i have timecapsule installed and i've backed up everything with it... is it any good?
    thanx in advance!

    First of all: Dont use ZiPhone!!!

    Use iLiberty or pwnage to jailbreak,activate,unlock. Check the forum, its full of users with bricked and semi-bricked iphones from using ZiPhone.

    I would go with pwnage for Mac or windows. If you use the windows-version you can pre-load the apps you want to use (again).

    On the personal data that are not covered by iTunes/Outlook,... you can go with TimeCapsule or do it manually, They are all in
    /private/var/mobile/Library
    You can SFTP (WinSCP on Windows; Cyberduck or Fugu on Mac) into the iphone and download the stuff you need. After restoring etc, connect again and put back what you need.

    I would give it a fresh start, just copy back the essentials.

    best,

    Try this app, its always usefull, and much faster/easier/reliable than other methods.
