The story: I updated my 4.2.1 iphone 4 (at&t) to 4.3. I got a 3014 error partway in, and it left my phone in permanent recovery. At that time I decided to try to restore it. After restoring, it was on version 4.3. I tried to restore my 4.2.1 backup, but couldn't. As it stands, I have a lot of valuable photos and data on my phone, and I can't get any of it off or any of my data back. What I really need is a way to get my photos back. I've tried a variety of file recovery programs, but none seem to be coupled with a program to get past Apple's wall of idiocy. If anyone can offer me any help on these matters, it would greatly be appreciated. 1) Is there any way for me to recover my deleted photos? 2) Is there any way for me to recover app data? I still have my 4.2.1 data saved. 3) Is there any method through jailbreaking (I did it on my old 3g but not on the 4 so far) that will let me either recover the app data/photos, restore to 4.2.1 (I don't have my SHSHs) or merge my backup onto the phone? 4) If there will be a way in the future, what should I do with my phone now? What I think went wrong: I'm going to attribute my problem to 2 things: 1) I was not updating from the US, so maybe there was a location problem. 2) the ipod service service was disabled. I am running on Windows 7 64, with itunes 10.1.0.56. Any help would be great, thanks!
