I didn't see this thread before & posted about saving that library folder for backup.
I am on WinXP and saved it to my pc yesterday & didn't have any problems. Is everything we need in there?
It took a while to copy it all.
Any specific reason only Macs can skip those steps in orig post?

Will Chronus and AppBackup save "save game" files from AppStore games? If not... how the heck do I do that? Saved games is the biggest downside for restore for me.

This should be updated to reflect 3.0 firmware updates

I'm currently on vacation in Europe and will not be upgrading my own phone until I return to the US next week. I will update this once I go through the upgrade to 3.0 process.

Info: iPhone 2G 8GB with restored 3.0 fw and jailbroken/unlocked using redsn0w
Ok. AppBackup is the answer to my question. This process works like a charm on most points.
1. When I copy /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/Mail, restore, jailbreak, and SSH the above folder back onto my iPhone my accounts do not show up.
--looks like this:
/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/Mail/xxx - backed up subfolders
2. Same goes with: Weather and Stocks. The only difference is there are no files under /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/Stocks(and/or Weather)
My weather and stocks info is long gone... but I still have all of my Mail backup stuff. Please tell me what I am doing wrong. Am I SSH'ing a file back onto my iPhone that i don't need to?
thanx for the help

Thats for sure jailbreaking make iPhone painless just need to take some pain at the time you are curing it to be painless.

Just to update:
Finally upgraded to 3.0 yesterday and the same method applies, Just the jailbreak method changes- redsn0w or Pwnage 3.0.

you forgot if you want to backup sms history, call history, cache, bookmarks and contacts (besides using itunes) then copy the folders of the same name in User/Library folder

I'm so uptight... I take screenshots prior to restoring/upgrading and upload them to PhotoBucket so I have a reference point. Every icon goes back in the same spot.

I wasn't quite sure which files to copy, Thanks!

This post is a godsend. Thank you for this. I'm very new to the jailbreaking scene, even though I've been using an iPhone since day one. But after using my jailbroken 3GS for a week, I will never use another unjailbroken iPhone again! Winterboard and SBSettings alone are worth the JB.
This is a great method and all but I would pay good money for an iTunes esque desktop client thats sole purpose is to seamlessly backup/restore jailbroken iPhones. This method seems like it does the trick nicely, but I'm talking about a 1 click process. Me only being jailbroken for about a week, I haven't had to do a restore yet. And I'm not really looking foward to it either. While your method seems good and is very well explained, it shouldn't have to take so many processes. Hopefully someone is hard at work coding a nice streamlined desktop app specifically for us jailbroken iPhone users. They'll certainly get my $!
