  • iTwin - Jailbreakless Way to Access Your iPhone's Info

    Just released is iTwin v1.4Final, a Windows app which lets you access your iPhone's db's from your PC, in a decent UI. The author describes the app as

    a program for the Windows PC, that will show the content of your iPhone/iPod Touch databases in a quite familliar 'Look & Feel'. You will have access to your 'Contacts', your 'SMS', to the 'Calendar' and to your 'Notes'. In addition iTwin will generate a 'Birthday-List' including 'Zodics' out of your contact details.

    iTwin can read your databases in two different ways. If your device is 'jailbroken' then you have instant access to your data via 'WiFi'. The second way is by analysing the 'iTunes-Backup-Files', where it is not nessesary to have a 'modified' iPhone or iPod Touch !
    No OS X version is listed, nor is one planned it seems. All you Windows folks may enjoy this one though. The "no jailbreak" option is a bit less than 100% accurate - it works from your iTunes Backup Files, as stated. That's great as long as you sync often - otherwise you're looking at old info. You should be syncing often anyway.

    The app could be a great way to have a separate backup of important info somewhere, or just to have your info handy if you prefer a larger screen for viewing.

      Thanks for this program, my friend's gf deleted a note of mine on accident > and I remembered I had this so I used it to read a backup of the note I had and replaced it instead of having to restore my phone to do so.

      So guys ... The new version (3.0 beta) is waiting for you to download. It is already running very stable, according to numerous feedback. I know, that many of you have a mac, so I made some changes to iTwin, to run it at least via Parallels or VirtualBox. (better than nothing) It can directly read databases of your iTunes-backup located on the mac-side. Just set up a 'Shared folder' pointing to your iTunes-backup-folder. (usually here: /Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup) Paralles will create a new drive letter for you. (e.g. Y: ) Then enter this drive letter in the Settings-window of iTwin and you are ready to import and display all of your contacts, text messages etc. Sounds complicated, but it isn't. I will add a little tutorial (including some nice pictures) on my website soon. And sorry, no I am not planing to build a 'pure' mac version in the near future. Let me know what you think ... Rgds.

      So, I am happy now to announce a new beta-version of my little tool. Many improvments and already rock-stable. So before iOS6 is comming make sure you have a backup of your databases. If you have a PC give it a try!

      Cheers ...
