Transfer Camera Roll from old iPhone 3GS to new iPhone 4

I just picked up my iPhone 4 and I'm attempting to move my Camera Roll over from my old 3GS (running Jailbroken iOS 4.0.1). I've been looking through the files with DiskAid, but I'm not 100% what files are required to get the Camera Roll to transfer over. Can anyone assist me?

You need to transfer over the whole DCIM folder that is in the Media folder.

Did you delete the DCIM folder that was on the iPhone 4 and copy the 3Gs one over top of it then restart your iPhone?

Yeah! I go it to work. I found this - http://blog.mbentley.net/2010/06/iph...n-camera-roll/

What I did is back up both the DCIM and PhotoData folders on the old phone and then connect the new phone and delete the DCIM and PhotoData folders on it and then upload the ones from my 3GS. Then I followed the steps in the article above.
