Get Photos from Backup?
i think some had the same issue before.
i made a backup of my iphone (normal via itunes sync).
i restore after the hardware hack (to 1.0.2) and all the data is lost, okey no problem i thought i did the backup before, so load all on the phone via itunes, the settings etc all fine.
but the photos arent there.
now my question, are these photos lost? or are they stil somewhere on the backup file?

On the iPhone the images taken by the camera are stored in: /var/root/Media/DCIM/100APPLE/
If you've restored, they are gone. :(
Next time, offload the images first before restoring.
