i would like to know if theres a good 3rd party program that can build an entire backup image of my iphone and save it on my pc
i mean everything, all the programs, images , system files, just everything on the device
maybe somekind of the ghost program for the iphone
cause the backup option in Iphone PC Suite works like crap
and i hate using itunes.

This is the direction Pwnage is heading. You can already do this on a Mac, adding files when Pwnage mounts the ramdisk. Atm, I'm not aware of any other program that does this. Look out though, I'm certain it'll be around soon!16GB iPhone 3G

i heard a rumor about iliberty having this option to add backups made to your custom ipsw. i think the backups are made from an iphone native app :P

if you are jailbroken, you can always do an rsync. i do this about once a week. requires a LITTLE know-how and a shell, but is pretty fast after the first, and i have access to everything if i ever have to redo.

Anyone looking for a proper backup tool should check out iBares (google it). I've been using it for months now and I like it a lot. Mac only though I think, but I might be wrong.

Ya but it'll take 4eber.
Go to user/library and backup that. That'll backup ur contacts messages safari.but not apps

are there any folders which you should not sync back to avoid such a problem with itunes, or do you only restore the folders you need as opposed to the entire filesystem? do you use the --delete option on restore?

So, what's the current status on this? Do we have any good softwares to do a full backup of iPhone?
I guess one can use iFunBox or WinSCP to copy the root directory like someone said, but when you perform a restore this way, would it be safe??? Would love to hear from users who have done this.
