    Iam getting bad reciption issues, and I want to restore to 4.0.1 again which iam currently on, on my iP4.

    Main things I want to backup are notes/voice memos sms texts, photos and vids.

    Can someone just confirm these are the correct locations to backup the above using SSH?

    How to backup your main content such as; Contacts, Notes, CallHistory, etc.
    private/var/mobile/Library/notes
    private/var/mobile/Library/SMS

    How to backup your Photo (Camera Roll):
    private/var/mobile/Media/DCIM/100APPLE

    How to backup your Voice Memos:
    private/var/mobile/Media/Recordings

    I do it with a program called Iphone browser. Then navigate to the folders and copy over the stuff to your PC. Also when connected to itunes, right click on your phone and choose backup.

    Or you can copy the files from those folders and just open them on your PC/Mac to verify they contain the data you're trying to backup.

    Thanks, might be handy in the future :)

    I assume those locations are correct for backing up notes/SMS/call logs etc?
