    Exclamation iPhone back ups are taking too long!

    I have an iPhone 4 (GSM) running 5.0.1 jailbroken with redsn0w and it takes too long to back up. It takes like 4 hours to back up and then when I want to restore my iPhone it says the back up is corrupt and cannot be restored with that back up. So I deleted every single thing (apps, photos and videos) other than my music because its gonna take too long to download all that again. So my back ups were working fine until I threw like 3 movies onto iTunes. I can't exactly remember what happened but I closed iTunes when it was about to back up. And please don't tell me that it is because of my iPhone being jailbroken because I have tried it jailbroken and non-jailbroken on both 4.3.3 and 5.0.1. So I am really sick of this because I cannot back up my iPhone at all! Please is their a solution?

    You're correct, jailbreaking does not impact your ability to complete backups and restore properly. Usually, in these cases, the easiest thing to do is to remove all folders from the iTunes Backups directory (don't delete them, just move them out), force a brand new backup. If that fails, then use a site like pastebin to paste a copy of your last log, you can find this here:

    C:\Users\<YourUserName>\Application Data\Apple Computer\Logs\MobileSync\


    C:\Users\<YourUserName>\Local Settings\Application Data\Apple Computer\Logs\MobileSync\

    Pull the most recent log and it will show the synchronization errors and problems. That said, go ahead and try moving existing backups first, disable iPhone Backups, re-enable iPhone Backups, then force a backup. That should resolve to begin with. If not, then go ahead and pastebin the log file for us -- please DO NOT post it directly into the post, it will be nearly impossible to read. Use pastebin and post a link to the paste.
