Thread: Backing up AP,s and passwords

  1. #1
    Default Backing up AP,s and passwords
    Is there a file i can copy to ensure all wap's and passwords I've used can be easily restored if upgrade to 4.3.3 from 4.2.1 (jail-broken i4). I don't want to manually redo all ap info I've already input.

    I can't 100% answer this question but I can say if you choose to create a backup in iTunes, it should automatically do what you're asking when later after an upgrade/restore you "restore from backup."

    Edit: hopefully somebody else can answer your question more directly

    iTunes 'restore from backup' does restore passwords including access point passwords. Never checked if the actual AP was included but I assume it was.

    /private/var/Keychains/keychain-2.db contains all your encrypted passwords.

    Good to know, thanks! I actually thought it did tho...could've sworn when I did that once I didn't have to re-enter my wifi password. Guess I was mistaken!

    It worked for me when I upgraded from 3.1.3 to 4.2.1 on iTunes 10.0. Only Apple knows what happens with between different firmware/iTunes versions. That's why I always manually back-up my keychains-2.db file
