    Default How can i make a backup image of my entire iphone ?
    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.

    anyone

    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!

    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

    this is all i could find for ya.

    iClone (iCloner - Create iPod backup images in case of iPod problems) claims to be able to do this... Haven't tried it personally, although plan to before firmware 2 upgrade.

    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.

    Wha??

    Sorry, but I'm a little slow over here.... You mind indulging us on what a "rsync" is and what you mean by having access to everything??

    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.

    last night i rsync'd an ipt2g (MC model) that was using 3.1.2 jailbroke with blackra1n rc3 to my computer, then restored with a stock copy of 3.1.2, rejailbroke, installed cydia and rsync and synced everything back to / . everything seemed to be restored perfectly, till i tried to sync to itunes and it wouldn't work, with an 0xE800001 error.

    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.
