    Not really a big deal, but I was curious if there is a way to do this-

    I had a hard drive crash about a month ago and did not have a backup of my current iPhone wallpaper. After replacing the hard drive, I synced my iPhone back up and everything has been working great. The only issue, I realized, is that if I change my wallpaper on the iPhone, I'll end up losing my current wallpaper because there isn't a corresponding file to it anywhere on the iPhone or my Mac. So that brings me to my question- is there any way to get that wallpaper off of my iPhone to my Mac to save it?

    If your iPhone is jailbroken, you can use OpenSSH to save the files you have on your iPhone, to your computer. If your iPhone is not jailbroken, when you connect your iPhone, open iPhoto and choose your iPhone in the devices section. Click on Import All or Import Selected if you only want specific photos to be transfered.
