    need an advice, here is the issue:

    My old mac is completely gone, data erased. All I have is full iTunes library in iPhone (jailbroken) with music, free and purchased apps. I bought new mac and I need somehow to transfer it all to new mac iTunes library.

    Thanks for any tips:)

    Sorry to hear that. This is one reason I always hated itunes. Im sure there are many different ways to go about this. You can always use a third party app to pull everything out of your phone and back to itunes. One is Touchcopy (have not used this one yet). There are many out there and of course some are paid apps. Just do a quick Google search and you will get loads of different apps that can help you.

    Purchased apps shouldn't be a problem. Pretty sure once you log in to itunes (on new mac) you can authorize the computer. You should then be able to re-download your paid apps.

    Someone else here will hopefully chime in and give you another way to do it.
