    Im trying to do a backup however my computer will not recognize it. I've also gone and tried to plug it up to a windows computer, same issue. Went and rebooted, nope. Is there anything I can do?

    Have you tried using another usb cord or usb port on your computer?

    Could be an issue with the port on the iPhone. I'd make an appointment with a Genius.

    now... I'm jailbroken, is it wise to do that though? what measures do I take to at least make it look unjailbroken?

    I personally wouldn't bother about hiding the fact its Jailbroken, especially for the Genius' in Australia. I told them I wanted to buy a product from them, the said product was to be used differently than what it was intended to be used for. I told them I want to buy it for Jailbreaking reasons and they replied, "Look, we have a 14 day return policy, and you can return back the item for any reason if you are not satisfied with it."

    Purchased the product and havn't gone back! :D

    to confirm, does it not recognise u're phone
    or does it give a sync error?

    can you place your phone in dfu, with a different usb cable and see if iTunes recognises an 'iPhone in recovery mode'

    you could always have tiny umbrella running in the background on use mac to flip the phone out of recovery mode

    Did you once have photoalbums+ installed? then maybe you uninstalled it? There was a bug in one of the versions that I suffered the same issue with. I simply installed the newest version of photoalbums+ thru the beta repo and it would sync to my computer once again.
