    My 3GS phone broke and Im borrowing a 3G phone till the 5 comes out--anyway I cannot throw my backup of my 3GS onto the 3G cause the firmware is to old 4.2.1 (thats all a 3g can get) and Itunes will not do it.

    So is there Anyway to go thru my computer and get into my Backup files? I REALLY need to get into my notes and it has TONS of work passwords I NEED!!!

    Which operating system you are using?

    For windows 7 its located at the following address and you need to enable "show hidden folders" :

    C:\Users\(your username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

    Thanks but confused at this part? How do I run that?

    posted this simple extraction utility written in Perl. When run, it converts each of the backup files to a normal well-named SQLite3 db file.
