soooo ****ed off right now, updated to 6.1, and was ready to restore and do the jailbreak only find itunes has deleted all of my backups, every single sodding one. which is made worse by the fact that windows 8 doesnt have shadow copies automatically enabled like win7. Thankfully i havent lost everything, just my messages and app settings. But seriously come May im jumping ship to galaxy s4, had enough of apple now


iTunes doesn't delete all your backups unless you explicitly delete them from Prefs. It does delete older backups every n'th backup but never the whole set. Unless you meant to say that iTunes somehow deleted the backup you did just before you hit the restore button, which I find quite implausible unless you didn't let iTunes finish with the backup.
edit: suppose that did happen... you might be lucky if it's lingering around somewhere in Recycle Bin.

Also, have fun doing backups on Android. Out of box there isn't a one-step backup and restore process for phones. You'd need a bunch of third party tools to do that.

Android is fine and all, but Backups on Android are a bigger mess than they are on iOS so I don't see how that is going to solve your problem. I'm shocked that you lost all of your backups somehow. Sorry, man :(. I have Time Machine snapshotting my drive, and that has come in handy to get older backups restored.

Best thing to do is unlock, root your Android phone and install Titanium Backup. (But you will have to RTFM for Titanium Backup before using it...). Alternatively, you can do backups in Recovery (as of ICS) that are "image" type backups (I believe). That's a lot of fun (having to boot up into recovery just to get a proper backup)! Don't know who has time for that....

The stock Google "Backup" is a complete and utter joke. No app data. No call/SMS history. Very few settings are restored. No homescreen backup. All it basically does is re-load your last wall paper and re-download all your apps (yipee!!!).

If you are going to Android for a better backup experience, prepare to be disappointed.

i did a normal itunes backup, backed up fine, even said last back up done at 17.40, updated to 6.1, then gave me the option of setting up a new phone only, which i thought was weird, so browsed to the location of the back up files in AppData/Apple Computer etc and the mobile sync folder was empty, so for some reason itunes spazzed out and deleted every back up, no sign of it in preferences either


Wow, that is bizarre :(. Sorry that happened. I'll be sure to double check my backup folder now!

Also, to hopefully help Chemaz: You might try an "undelete" windows app. Just like in the old' days, most file system just mark data as safe to overwrite but isn't immediately zeroed out.

That's why I back up to iCloud.

Back on topic, some of the repos are letting you do stuff, but slowly. Very slowly. Waited all this time to get a jailbreak, and can't even install anything!

I believe that no, its not. The issue is using a rom if you dont have the physical copy. That is illegal. I believe. Either way, its in that grey area.

Lol, all my settings for all my jailbroken apps on my iPhone 5 are exactly how I left them on my iPhone 4.

It sure was nice of Apple to restore those settings for me when I restored the iPhone 4 backup to my iPhone 5 ;). Magical.

I agree with Bizkit in that it is kind of a grey area.

Everything is installed. BiteSMS is awesome :). Loving having that back already. Still having some licensing issues with some previously purchased apps but I understand the situation is uncontrollable at the moment.

It is good to see so many apps already iPhone 5 optimized.

It's legal if you own the original of the game.. If not you enter a grey area.. and if they still sell the game in some form then you've surely crossed it.

All that said, I wouldn't worry about it too much one way or another..

Jailbroken and now about to update my iPads. Once the madness calms down I'll get f.lux on my iPhone 5 finally, and SBSettings finally.

This is a good day :)
