    I need to get an old iPhone backup from my Time Machine but I can't see my Library folder in my backups. I have done the chflags command to make Library show in my user folder, but can't see it in the Time Machine folder. Help?

    I'm not sure, but I think that the chflags only works for your Library in your Home folder. It won't work for your Backups. You have to navigate to those manually, I guess, or just set all hidden files to be visible (don't know how to do that but Google it).
