    Hey guys.
    I have an iPhone 3G and made a back-up of everything. At the time of backing it up, it was jailbroken and unlocked. I didn't have many apps on it atall, but nearly 3GB of pictures and videos. Last night after recieving my phone back from a display repair from Apple I restored the phone from back-up, and it took almost 9 hours. After 9 hours everything works fine, I have all my contacts, settings, pictures/videos etc.

    Anybody any idea why it would take so long? is anything affected by it being jailbroken? or maybe a particular app that I have installed from cydia? Maybe just a dodgey back-up?

    Cheers

    that's very strange, maybe it is because it's fixed that it took so long ?!

    It must have been all of the pictures and videos and music. That stuff always takes a long time whenever I restore mine from a back up. Doesn't take 9 hours though

    yeah well thats what I thought. 3GB of stuff is not a lot atall, 9 hours is a lot of time if there was 32GB of stuff on there...

    And I don't think it was anything to do with it being fixed that it took so long, I vaguely remember it taking a long time to restore the time before it being fixed...
