  • 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.

      would this allow for manual install of non appstore apps and the ability to set permissions?? or is it just along the same idea as iFunBox???

      Same thing happens to me. Oh well maybe a new version will fix this or we are both doing something wrong.

      I get the same message ("ist kein gultiger integerwert"); which means Is Not a Valid Integer. I am running 3.0 beta 4... perhaps a problem with 3.0 databases.... anyone get it to work running 2.2.1?

      I don;t think this will let you alter anything on the phone, just view it. Darn... was hoping to be one step closer to being iTunes free for adding media. I just hate iTunes

      Still waiting on a win based app that allows me to copy my cydia sources and installed applications that actually works. The cyder app sucks + no support. I'd pay for that easily.
