    Hi all,

    I've just updated my phone to 5.1.1 and unfortunately had to do a restore (stupid iTunes for Windows...) all of my app data was recovered without a problem (that I can tell) but unfortunately my camera roll is absolutely blank, save for the one screenshot I accidentally just took whilst trying to hard reset my phone!

    Luckily the Dropbox app has meant I haven't lost everything (thank god!) but I'm wondering how I can get those photos back into the camera roll?

    Many thanks

    Download them to your computer and sync them to your phone through iTunes.

    Just curious, why'd you restore? I'm on Vista and I just did the OTA.

    Thanks, that was tempting but I only had maybe 300 or so photos in my camera roll, as opposed to the 3,000 or so saved in Dropbox - ideally I only want to restore the 300 or so I had in my camera roll (they're my favourite shots dating back from ages ago, also some useful ones I often refer to, I could go through Dropbox and sort through them, but it'd probably take me a good couple of days of sorting)

    the update was constantly failing, so I had to do a restore, but in turn meant I lost all of my photos!
