    Thumbs up TIPS: How to force iTunes to restore a user data BACKUP.

    Have you restored an iPhone recently or switch to a new phone or whatever?

    I think many of you have experienced the pain after you accidentally selected "Setup as New Phone" on the iPhone home screen on iTunes.

    Don't panic! Before you waste another 20 mins or so to restore the phone again, try this.

    BSD Subsystem is required. SSH will be the easiest thing to do, although some odd people like me want to do it on MobileFinder. So you can use WinSCP with SSH or just MobileFinder.

    Step 1 of 1 (): Connect to your phone with WinSCP or start browsing right away with MobileFinder, and delete /var/root/Media/iTunes_Control folder. Then restart the phone and connect to iTunes again.

    Enjoy.

    iTunes will automatically backup your iPhone when you sync it, or when you update or restore it.
    You may have to move your whole iTunes library to your new computer. You could make a backup of your library by going File > Library > Backup to disk and then load the resulting disks into the new computer.

    All you gotta do is go to settings and choose to erase iPhone contacts, then connect to iTunes and it will ask you to choose what backup to restore to....NOT FULL iPhone RESTORE.

    BEWARE: restoring from a backup to a different device than the original backup device (like if you upgrade or get a AppleCare replacement) will NOT restore your non-apple application data. You will need something like Dr.Fone for iOS to get at your application data but restoring that data is another issue.

    I am an iOS developer with productivity apps out there who has experienced this pain. I really dont understand why apple is not allowing the restoration of the non-apple application data to upgrade/replacement devices.
