I had a good quantity of bugs in my iPhone so I decided to restore it, and to guard my information using the recovery of the iTunes, already I had done it before and had not problems ... I restore with iTunes to leave it in 1.1.4, then I use the iLiberty+ as always, and everything work correctly, until the moment of doing the recovery, I click on iTune to do it, the iTunes was doing it and appear a notice of mistake saying that it was impossible to do, that needed to restart the iPhone and was returning to try, well, the iPhone just restart alone, and when finish the restart, the iPhone appeared in the iTunes, but the option of the recovery did not appear again.

    Already I tried removing and placing the iphone.
    Removing the iphone, closing the iTunes, opening the iTunes and placing again the iPhone, and nothing hapens...

    I have searched for the iTunes and nothing...

    I know these files must avoid somehow in the PC, please, I beg help to the one that could!!! I have events and contacts that support had not done to them and have lost them!!!


    Amigos, tengo un problema!!! Necesito ayuda urgente!!! por favor! tenía una buena cantidad de bugs en mi iPhone así que me decidí a restaurarlo, y para guardar mis datos usar el recovery del mismo iTunes, ya lo había hecho antes y no había tenido problemas... restaure con itunes para dejarlo en 1.1.4, use el iLiberty+ como siempre, y todo funciono correctamente, hasta la hora de hacer el recovery, le di a que lo hiciera y a los segundos salió un aviso de error diciendo que fue imposible hacerlo, que necesitaba reiniciar el iPhone y volviera a intentar, bueno, el iPhone se reinicio solo, y cuando el reinicio termino, el iPhone apareció en el itunes, pero no me apareció de nuevo la opción del recovery.

    Ya probé quitando y colocando el iphone.
    Quitando el iphone, cerrando el iTunes, abriendo el iTunes y colocando nuevamente el iPhone, y nada de nada... He buscado por el iTunes y nada...

    Se que estos archivos se deben guardar de alguna manera en el iPhone, por favor, les suplico ayuda al que pueda!!! Tengo eventos y contactos que no les había hecho respaldo y los he perdido!!!

    Did you sync your phone to your PC before doing the restore??

    If so then just start again from scratch. Restore, jailbreak/activate/unlock on latest 1.1.4 firmware - then sync it again. All contacts/calendar will be copied back over to the phone from your PC

    Spanish:

    Ok, lo primero que debes acer es volver a Restaurar (Recover) el iPhone usando iTunes. Asi podras borrar cualquier error que halla pasado.

    Segundo, ya que restaurastes (Recover) la opcion de recuperar la informacion vieja deberia aparecer.

    Cualquier cosa vuelve a postiar, aqui tamos para ayudar. Una cosa mas, ayuda si me dijieses que usas una Mac o una Windows

    Translation:

    First, Restore using iTunes. That way you erase any given error that may plague your iPhone.

    Second, once the Restore is finished the Restore from Back-up question should pop up again since you did another Restore.

    Anything else, just post, we are here to help. One more thing, it helps if you tell us what are you using, Mac or Windows.

    i dont know if I got everything right.

    Before restoring to 1.1.4 you did regular syncs, right?
    In this case your Musik, Videos, Calendar, Adresses should be on your PC (iTunes & Outlook (Windows) iCal (Mac) Address Book (Mac).
    After restoring to 1.1.4 and using iLiberty you connected to iTunes and got a popup asking if you want to "use the backup". DONT hit yes here! "Setup as a new iPhone" is the right choice. Otherwise you will get back tons of settings, among probably those that caused the trouble before restoring.
    After setting up as a new iphone, sync with iTunes. You will get back all Musik, videos, Kalendar, Adresses.
    the only thing that is lost is Wi-fi settings, Notes, your choice of displayed Cities in Weather, Stock etc. You can set this up again and will have a fresh iPhone working.

    Hope that helps

    Oh, that sounds nor too good. Once you do a restore and connect to iTunes again, the programm "knows" that it is connected to an iPhone that has been connected before 8from saved data). So it offers something like "restore from a backup of the iPhone". Thats where the error showed up when you tried to do this. If iTunes - because of the error - set it up "as a new iPhone" (the other option) - there is big chance that the embedded addresses in the backup are gone.

    That backup option is made by Apple for "official" users. At most cases on our solutions it is better to always start "as a new iPhone". Especially when you had upgraded from a firmware <= 1.1.2 to 1.1.4. Cause Apple changed a lot in the structure&users in 1.1.3 using the backup often leeds to problems.

    In your case the only option you could try again hoping the data is already somewhen dep in a backupfile on your PC is the following. So seem to be comfortable using iLiberty+. So do a DFU restore to 1.1.4 again. Unlock and activate with iLiberty (only this) and make sure to have BSD&OpenSSH on the iPhone. Connect to iTunes and keep your fingers crossed taht the dialog shows up and you are able to "restore from backup". If the dialog shows up, make sure to check the menü that ofers the choice of iPhones to backup from.

    SFTP to the iPhone via Wi-Fi then with WinSCP (Windows), Fugu/Cyberduck (Mac). Goto /var/mobile/Library. If backup worked, you will see "Addressbook". Open it. In there you should see AddressBook.sqlitedb and AddressBookImages.sqlitedb. Copy both to your PC. Goto Calendar then. In there you find Calendar.sqlitedb. Copy to PC aswell.

    DFU restore again and unlock your iPhone too your needs. In iTunes selct "setup as a new iPhone" if offered. On the iPhone open Phone app -> kontacts and enter one contact (just a name). Same on Calendar, enter one event.

    SFTP connect to the iPhone again, goto /var/mobile/Library again and open "Adressbook". Copy the files you backed up to the iPhone replacing the one on there. Do the same with calendar items.

    As I said, the chance you will be able to use the backup option above mentioned is not big, give it a try.

    If you are sucessfull, you should get syncing contacts and cal item synced all the time with the PC.

    keep my fingers crossed
