    Default Making a Non-Corrupt Back-up?
    Okay, some of you may remember my other thread: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/general...-im-idiot.html

    Well, I decided to restore after fixing my problem to make sure everything was good, and of course, it won't restore from my new back-up I made 3 seconds prior to the restore... again.

    I found out what to do to fix this problem (delete /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist and use the proper back up for /System/Library/launchdaemons/com.apple.springboard.plist (which is 695kb), however I don't know what to do to make a legitimate back-up now, so I can just restore and be stock (to make sure I can get back there. No way I'm staying stock, by the way).

    If anyone knows a method, I'll be very thankful.

    If not, the location of the address book, sms messages, notes, stocks, weather preferences, etc. would be great.

    Thanks... (Sorry for the long read)

    Alright, I'm afraid to play with this anymore, but I can't figure out what I could do to make a safe backup. The plists have to be right for it to startup, so if I sync it from there, everything should be good... Any help would be awesome again. Thanks.

    P.S. I believe if I turn it off, it won't start up again if that helps, by the way.
