Thread: HOW TO: iPhone Data Recovery

Ubuntu Linux OpenSSH Server installation and configuration
I think there is a chance, but for now i didn't find it. Because extract the data as an Img is useless if we don't decrypt the data after (since IOS4). And now i don't know exactly how to decrypt it. There is several tools live Idecrypt /vfdecrypt but i have some question about it, see my post above.
So i can advise you to extract the data, it's better than nothing, but you have to find a way to open it !!!

Is it confirmed that it doesn't work with iphone 4?
09-25-2011, 03:25 PM #225
I have permanently disabled iPhone 4. it is my wife`s phone who passed away.
i need to get photos and videos from the phone. The original computer which i synced it with doesn't help. i have 2 computer and don't remember which one was that i synced it with,on one of them i had hard drive which crashed so i installed new one, so basicly when i am connecting to itunes on both computer it says "enter your passcode before connecting to itunes" but on the phone there is no keypad to enter passcode, it says only "iphone is disabled connect to intunes"
So far nothing works.
1. I tried iFaith to dump SHSH blobs, but later found out that building IPSW is only for restoring, that it will not retrieve my data.
2. I tried iPhone Browser but it doesn't see my device
3. i did not try this yet,as you suggested, not sure how to do this
any suggestion, do you know anybody who have gotten data back from disabled iPhone?
i will pay if anybody can do that for me , please help me, i will really appreciate it

I'm completely new to all this "openssh", "DD", "terminal". I jailbroke my 3gs and that was pretty easy. I got "openssh" installed on my pc AND iPhone. HOW THE HECK DO I OPEN THE "openssh" PROGRAM?!?!?! I've been reading this forum for hours and others as well and I'm not stupid at all but it seems like there are MANY things that posters here are taking for granted when they are trying to help others. Can someone PLEASE do a step by step on all this? I'm fully aware thats asking a LOT from someone but it wont just benefit me it will benefit MANY others out there that lost EVERYTHING when their phone crashed.

Okay, i've finally got to the part where i've got a 'dump.img' on my Slave on my Windows/PC machine.
I just want to thank everyone who had the courtesy of posting step-by-step instructions. If you noobs who keep asking for the instructions, they're here in this thread. If your pictures aren't worth glossing over a 12 page forum thread, then clearly they're not worth it to begin with.
Anyway, i'm at the part where I need to use photorec. Do I use photorec to scan the entire (whole) harddrive of where the .img is placed?
Because i've read somewhere in this thread about a mountable image, giving me the impression I need to use a program like Daemon Tools or Alcohol 120% to mount the iPhone volume/img and then point photorec to it. I feel like i'm doing something wrong by just scanning the hard drive where the 'dump.img' is simply stored (my Slave drive, volume label E).
Can someone post instructions or help me out with this part? It would be much appreciated.

I followed all the steps by building an ubuntu machine and actually got data for a friends iphone 3g. However, there are few full size pictures but tons and tons of thumbnails. Is there something I have done wrong or another method that can be used? His phone was in a boot loop where it would go to the apple then shut off. I installed 4.2 on it then followed the directions in this thread but feel like I am missing something since many of the pictures were not actual size. It recovered literally 35,000+ jpg files. Of those about 20 were of actual size. The rest were smaller and many were thumbnails. Any insight?

Will it be possible to recover other files that are not images? Like audio files or videos?

anyone know how I can restore my text messages and contacts from a backup in iTunes. i know it is there cos when I tried to re jailbreak my iPhone iTunes asked me which backup i wanted to use and on selecting the older one all my messages and contacts miraculasly appeared but phone was still locked to o2 when i am on Orange so ofter numerous tries I managed to unlock it but lost the above.
How do i get that list up again asking me which backup i want to use?Maz

Any suggestions? Everything seems to work yet I always end up with a 0 byte file and the write process never seems to end. I let it run for a couple days and nothing seems to happen.
11-26-2011, 09:18 PM #233Terrible Terminal Trouble
I have mobile Terminal installed on my 3GS with OS4.2.1 When I try to run terminal, it briefly shows keyboard, then crashes back to springboard. I have tried reinstalling terminal through cydia and device reboot with same effect. Any suggestions would be appreciated. :-)

I appreciate the help on this forum. I have been able to ssh into my iphone from imac terminal. But, when I try to run mobileterminal on iphone it just crashes immediately to springboard. Is there any way to accomplish same from imac terminal? Can I remote mount drive?

I have successfully dumped and recovered off a 3g and 3gs. I have an .img from a 4th gen itouch. I don't understand how to decrypt it. Also I can't get an iphone 4 on ios 5 to even start dumping. I get no such directory for dev/disk0.
