The application is only for firmware 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 iPod touches/iPhones for PC. To use the application download it onto your PC, run the iBackup.msi, install it, and you can either run the program from your desktop, or through your Start Menu. Then when you run it you will see several buttons on the top, click the Backup button to backup your applications, application data and photos. Please read and follow the instructions. Then whenever you want to put all those applications and stuff back onto your ipod click the Restore button and follow the instructions.

doesn't work for me it freezes. I updated the program and will try again

does it backup the installer plist's so that after the restore they will still be installed in installer? and backup the sources?

Can anyone report on their results from backing up with this program.....such as when one does a restore,,,,does this program require you to manualy re-set your app permissions,,,,to get any app to work properly again or no?
I have yet to use this backup program, so I was just curious....

it doesn't work. I have tried it on a few computers
I take that back. Once I learned to follow instructions and do the ssh fingerprint first it works fine.

I was interested in trying this out but have a question. I noticed that iBackup askes if you have symlinked your apps either manually or with BossTool. What if you had Cydia move and symlink the apps? Reason I ask is that Cydia moves the apps to a different subdirectory than BossTool. Does this matter?

where does it store the backup file on my computer and what is it called?
05-16-2008, 07:36 PM #15
Just thought of anotehr question, If you are running more than 90 apps (with Summerboard) will it mess up the phone by removing Summerboard? I imagine I would have to uninstall a few apps before uninstalling summerboard to do the backup.

still waiting on a mac version, however, i installed this on my PC and am backing up my apps now! i'm very excited about this! this will make my next restore much less painful!
i just found this too... different dev but it seems to do the same thing for mac:
my next restore may be sooner than planned! after backing up using ibackup on my pc... i connected my iphone back to my mac (to charge it) and itunes popped up, wanting me to "set up my iphone"! it says it was previously synced to this computer (duh) and wants me to restore from my last backup (which was yesterday). what the heck?? how do i fix this?
another update: i just realized that all my music/videos/ringtones are gone... looks like this "backup" screwed up my phone. great. time to restore.
