I don't usually use iTunes to backup my files. I just manually get the files I need by SSHing into my iPhone using iFunbox but every time I try to put my files from 4.3.3 into my newly updated 5.0.1 iPhone, the iPhone freaks out and glitches up on me. I even try restarting the phone but it still glitches up. So now I've fully restored it. Is there anyway to convert the files from 4.0 to work on 5.0??? Or is there anyway to make the 4.3.3 backup in iTunes work on my 5.0.1 iPhone???
P.S. The files I use are var/mobile/library/...

Why wouldn't you just back up with iTunes? If you did, you wouldnt have this problem.

I did.... But for some reason it doesn't give me the option of restoring the backup to my newly restored iPhone! Please give me a step by step because apparently this is too hard for me...
Okay. Someone tell me is it possible to restore an iOS 4 backup to a device that is running iOS 5??

I had trouble restoring from a backup on ios4. Make sure you backup your contacts because you will lose them. You can do it manually through ssh or via iTunes; or any other way people know how to do them.

There is an app out there... "iPhone backup recovery" I believe... It will pull off the Picts, sounds and everything else from the actual backup file on ur CPU... But it will not put them on ur phone...

Oh no you do not want to just slam plist files into 5.0 from
4.0! Plus they changed a few things around. (and locations of things as well!) they changed names of files to, adding ~iPhone to a lot, but not all items...
Depending on what you are trying to do, swapping files from 4. To 5. Is a bad idea...
