QuickPwn 2.1 to 2.2 - How do I backup with WinSCP?
Yes, I'm a n00b. Yes, I did do a search, but didn't come up with much useful info...
I want to move from 2.1 to 2.2 on my 3G iPhone. I have a fair amount of data and non-Apple apps, as well as a rather involved Categories setup. I'd rather not have to do ALL this again!
Since I can connect to my iPhone with WinSCP and see all the files, I should be able to backup what I want and restore it later, right? Can anyone point me in the right direction for this?

You can do that manually.
Notes.db is in /private/var/mobile/Library/Notes
SMS.db is in /private/var/mobile/Library/SMS
Calendar.sqlitedb is in /private/var/mobile/Library/Calendar
Once you put the files back on your 2.2 Phone, you may notice a bug with you not being able to receive SMS's or save Notes.
(You need to CHMOD the /private/var/mobile/Library/Notes to 0777 and /private/var/mobile/Library/SMS folder to 0700...
You have all your Apps back and your SMS/Calendar/Notes backed up!
