    You don't need IfunBox or iFile. Just sync the folder with the photos on your PC with iTunes to your iphone.
    When you connect your iphone to PC, open iTunes. In summary on the top, hit the button photos. You will have a choice to choose the folder for syncing. Choose the folder with your photos on your PC and hit the sync button. All your photos from that folder will be transferred to your iphone. Very simple

    What you need to do is transfer it to the /DCIM/100Apple (camera roll) as you mentioned, and THEN go to the PhotoData folder and delete the Photos.sqlite file.

    Reboot the phone, then open back up the photos app, and it shall began to restore all your photos and videos you transferred.

    You don't need the internet. It's stored locally on the phone.

    Depending on how many photos you transferred, it should be rather quickly, but may take longer if you transferred videos over that you recorded previously before the upgrade.

    Are you also transferring .mp4 files or do you just have a lot of photos?
