    On Christmas I synced, updated to 3.1.2, and jailbroke my 3GS using Blackra1n (serial 27 so no tethered jailbreak), but it never was very stable, going to "no service" several times a day. I am using AT&T 6.0 from a previous 3.0 jailbreak, tried several profiles (to keep tethering) but nothing worked very well, always the "no service" issue a few times a day.

    Anyway today my phone was acting flaky, several "no service" issues, so I decided to hard reboot it which I've done many times with no problem. Today it would not reboot. The apple could come up, for a long time, then the spinner could come up and spin VERY slowly...after a half hour of that, trying to reboot several times, I tried to Blackra1n it to boot, no dice. So I had to Restore it, the restored from backup. It went fine, except ALL THE PICS IN MY CAMERA ROLL are gone. I've got several backups in my itunes directory so I figured the one with several files 12/25, my last good backup would have the pictures, but there are no pictures in that backup. Trying other backups I got some pictures from 1997 to 1998 (I've had each brand of iPhone) but none of my recent pictures.

    Does anyone know how to see what is in these backups and see where my pictures are? They must be somewhere. Help please!

    ok got that taken care of...I had a different sim in the phone (I've got two working iPhones) when I tried to restore so that must of messed things up. When I put in the the right sim, and found the right backup it restored all my pictures and settings.

    I guess the moral of the story is, if you are restoring, make sure you have the same sim in as the sim you used to back up with.
