    Could be worse. It could have been /.

    But then, either way you'll need to restore to fix it.

    What would happen if he just placed it back? Provided he still has the folder. Would it make a difference if he deleted it and put it back straight away or if he unplugged the phone and used it then tried putting it back? Will it even go to his trash or does iExplorer delete it permanently from the phone and doesn't take it to his computers trash?

    Put it in dfu mode.
    And make sure your hosts file points to Apples servers.

    Unless he copied it and saved it on computer, deleting cannot be undone.

    Would cyberduck work? Just a guess. If not, restoring is the way to go.
