I have a 3GS 3.1.2 and I'm about to install blackrain. I'm writing because I really need to learn how to find the archive files that itunes makes for my contacts and calendar, so that if blackrain ends up taking a crap on my phone I can recreate my phone again using these saved files.
So, how exactly do I go about finding and saving the files I need to get my phone going again if armagedeon were to strike? Maybe there's a good tutorial on it?
Jailbreaking won't affect any of your phone's data. The sync process just carries on like before. You don't need to worry!
not necessarily true. i was doing rejailbreaking my phone for 3.1.2 a while ago and something happened and i lost everything and had to start all over. luckily i have a mac and i had all my contacts in my address book on my mac!
That's basically what I want to do...to be able to sync my phone to computer, and the be able to pull up my contacts in say Outlook. From something I read a while ago this is supposed to be the case. Anybody help me figure out how to pull up my iTunes stored contacts in any of the Windows db programs independent of my phone?
