    For those who used Spirit and lost your photos and don't want to restore again there's a fix!

    Download this(32 bit) or this(64 bit)

    Install the program and then pick the backup that has the missing pictures:

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Now it will tell you to get the files automatically or manually, choose manually.

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Now go to Media>Media. Now check off the secound media folder and make sure the DCIM folder is checked too. Now make a copy to your computer.

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Now we need to SSH, navigate to /User/Media/ and place the DCIM folder there and let it overwrite anything that has to be.

    Now reboot and go into your photos app and check your camera roll. You picture should be back!


    Spirits update may fix this, not everyone encounters this problem

    I swear, if this gets stickied and my tutorial for spirit (the first tutorial) dosent...
    Don't get me wrong, this thread is very helpful, and I used it, but since this is the first tutorial for this, as was mine, either they both need sticking or neither.

    The only photos deleted of mine were the ones where you save from web etc. My photo library was fine.

    This is good, but it wants me to buy the license to get more than 1 file. Is there any other way or program I can get my pics from a backup file?
