After restoring my phone firmware and plugging it in, iTunes gave me an option to backup my phone.
I did it, and then I saw that all my settings were back, including my camera pics.
How did iTunes do that? where does it store all my pictures?
I believe it backs up your settings and stuff somewhere in the itunes program folder. Wasn't aware that it backed up pictures though, I thought pictures were just resynced in itunes during first normal sync (although i guess itunes could backup the camera roll).
