    Hooray! Imack got it! You are now pronounced an official supporter of iBackup *ggg*

    Seriously... he's right. Of course I do NOT backup any media data! There's also a "responsibility matrix" on the web site in and in the readme that shows what kind of data iBackup is handling :-)


    and to pl_svn: you're right, it would suffice.... but of course it's much easier this way ;-) and it's only backed up ONE TIME anyway.. the first time. then, as they are unchanged, there will be not transfer of the standard apps. So it's ok, I think. :-)

    BTW: I've just been doing a first time of "pwn'ing" and therefor of course also testing my "restore for new firmware" instructions. Seems I missed one or two little steps and also found an error in the individual restore.... Will correct that soon.
    But all in all, it's proven to work.

    Cheers,
    Kerry.

    If you are (as your footer says) on 2.0 Beta, it CAN NOT work.

    Read the requirements: you need AT LEAST OpenSSH installed. But you can't on 2.0 because you don't have a installer... That's why it's trying to establish the rsa but can't because the iPhone doesn't answer the ssh request!

    Sorry.... only upto 1.1.4 and only WITH OpenSSH.

    Hi Kerry,

    I just ran it for the first time and it worked well.
    I still have a couple of clarifying questions:
    1. before running iBackup I manually turned on SSH on my iPhone. Is it necessary or iBackup turns it on automatically (and off too? that would be nice...)
    2. I went a couple of times back and forth between the iBackup window and the Terminal window. I wonder if this is the expected behavior or not. I had been staring at the iBackup window for a while before realizing I had to go to the Terminal window and enter the password, so it is possible that the first time did not work because of kind of timed out. I an pretty sure my description of what happened is a bit confusing for a lot of people, but I hope you understand what I am talking about.

    At any rate, it's a wonderful up and it came out with great timing, highly useful when combined with pwning

    Best,

    Marco

    ... so, after a restore, only third-party apps will be restored? won't, standard iphone apps, have an *older* creation date than those in the backup?

    Dear Marco,

    regarding your questions.
    1) yes, you have to turn it on and off yourself (or leave it on, but that's not recommended, esp. not if you haven't changed your root password). iBackup can't turn it on because it only could if it had access to the phone and therefor it needs ssh and therfore...... you get the point, huh? ;-)

    2) It's no matter how long you take with the Terminal or changing back and forth.... iBackup will just wait until the script in the Terminal is finished.

    But however, once you're setup you won't see that again, anyway.

    Before the release of 2.0 I had some thorough testing of all possible constellations of RSA and rsync not working, or suddenly being removed even if they worked before. However, iBackup should handle all those now gracefully and bring you back to a working state .-)

    pl_svn,

    Yes, if you do a restore in "update mode" only the (missing) 3rd party apps will be restored. The original Apple apps would have the same date (if same firmware version) or a newer date (if after updated firmware) than those in the backup and therefor not being transferred in either case.
    Only if you'd do a full backup (non-update mode), the Standard Apps would also be copied and then overwriting those on the phone (whether newer or the same as in the backup).

    There was a bug in 2.0 when having blanks in the path of a individual archive - nothing was restored. The new version is 2.0.1 and up now.

    Complete Restore after FW-Update works!

    After some of you told me about "pwning" (and first I had no idea what that was....) I took a look at it yesterday and today pwn'ed my phone and of course could thereby also have another full-throttle test of iBackup.

    Result is: it works as described and I found a few minor improvements to make the process still smoother... there's a full description on the iBackup site (www.iBackup.to) under "Usage Scenarios".

    Cheers,
    Kerry.
