    ic well, i would venture a guess and say
    /var/root/Library/<photos or something?>/

    but that would be a total guess

    You might want to try:


    /private/var/root/Media/DCIM/100APPLE

    It seems to store the photo & a thumbnail too.

    Note that this is for photos taken by the iPhone only. The Photo Library is not stored here. (I don't know where it is yet)

    You'd need an application for that (a MobileSubstrate plugin), because by default the Photo viewer doesn't go further than one level of folders -- the folders that are directly in your "My Pictures" folder on your (Windows) computer.
    Windows tool to edit .plist, .strings and .nib files: pledit.
    Or use a website that will convert the binary form to a readable format.
    On iPhone you can convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities from Cydia), or edit them with iFile (from Cydia).

    /var/mobile/Library/AddressBook/AddressBookImages.sqlitedb.

    It's an SQLite database. There are several programs (and a Firefox extension) that can extract the photos from it.
