    Can you clone a jailbroken iPhone by copying 'root' in SSH? I want to transfer my stuff into another iPhone with more storage space. Can I just copy 'root' in ssh when connecting my old iPhone to the computer? Can I cut 'root' and paste it on my desktop, then clear the new phone and paste 'root' into the new iPhone, also through ssh? Then, will ALL my info be in the new iPhone?

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    I would just copy the apps and stuff I needed, but perhaps this will work, depending on whether permissions don’t get messed up.

    Let us know how it goes.

    It seems like it would work in theory, if both phones are jailbroken. We all know that sometimes things aren't as simple as they seem, but please let us know how it goes!
