    Default RESTORE GONE WRONG.... Lost Everything!!! Help please!!
    Hi Im on the 5.0.1 firmware with the iphone 4.
    Recently i jailbroke my device untethered using limera1n. All going good until running really slow.
    I decided i'd restore my phone. So i backed my phone up and started to restore. Restore completed, now it asked me
    where id like to back up from so i choose my back up date id like (latest from computer) and halfway through it got unplugged .
    i plugged my phone back in and it started to back up on itunes from there whilst there was nothing on my phone!!! And i think it has over written my previous backup with all my CONTACTS, CALENDER, NOTES, PICS EVERYTHING!
    I have gone into my backups and have located the folder which is the back up i want but the iphonebackupextractor is not working on it atall (will do on my older iphone backups tho, for another iphone tho).. the size of the file is 3.3gb (so i know there is some stuff in there!). iv tried restoring from this point but itunes will not detect it at all.. What can i do?? Any help will do thanks!

    p.s so i ended up restoring from where the last update was (which was after it got unplugged) and it only gave me my apps which id purchased, no contacts, no notes, no nothing just apps!

    We're you on a 4.x firmware when you restored?
