    Default Need Ubuntu guru help to make low level disk image
    Hey all, I FINALLY got my Verizon 4.2.7 completely jailbroke in an attempt to recover deleted photos from my iPhone 4. In the process, I managed to overcome the network problems that are inherent with Ubuntu 10.10. So now I have my iPhone connected to my router, and Ubuntu on the router. But my two remaining issues are these (as my linux and Ubuntu knowledge is very limited and elementary):

    1. How do I ensure port 22 is open in Ubuntu?

    2. The directions I have are launching a command line ( dd if=/dev/disk0 | ssh <username>@<computer-ip> 'dd of=iphone-dump.img' ) FROM the iPhone using MobileTerminal. Problem is, MobilTerminal does not work on the later iOS for the iPhone. So what I need is the equivilent command to launch from my computer that will copy my iPhone disk disk image from the phone to my computer. Any suggestions?

    3. Where do I save the file on my computer so that I can go back to Window and run the PhotoRec and pull them out of the image.

    I really appreciate your input and hope that it helps me. I have literally put 50 man hours and a couple hundred bucks to get the necessary equipment up and running to achieve this. I am so close and this seems to be the only thing stopping me. Thanks for your help.

    -Jon

    Try lists.ubuntu.com, and Mobile Terminal v.520-1 from Your Cydia Repo, works fine with latest iOS.

    HTH.

    Im not sure but something like dd if=<user>@<iphoneip>:/dev/disk0 'dd of=iphone-dump.img sould work,

    I know The problem with mobileterminal so i use issh pointed to localhost in order to have a terminal on my iPad user:root, pass:alpine

    You laso have another option, on yogur ubuntu machine use sftp://root:alpine@iPhone-ip as URL in a file browser (nautilus, dolphin, etc) and then jus copy The files you want.

    Hope it. Helps
