We get calls all the time with customers in a Panic, they have just replaced there screen on there iPhone or had there screen replaced and when they went to look at there pictures after the fact, they were no where to be found! Now when they plug there phone into iTunes it shows the pictures are there but they are marked as other but yet are still no where to be found on the phone.
This my friends is obviously a HUGE problem before we begin there are some preventitive steps that MUST be taken.
Note: This will also fix most issues if your camera roll becomes corrupt for any reason and displays in iTunes as other.
PROCEED WITH CAUTION: This works for us multiple times a week but we can not be held resposible for a damaged iPhone this tutorial works in most cases but you must follow the first 2 steps just in case any thing goes wrong or you delete the wrong file.
1. Back up your phone to iTunes as we will be messing with the file system
2. For this tutorial we will be using iFunBox although there are others out there this is the one we like to use this one. To download just click the link and download for either Mac or Windows.
Once you have downloaded and installed, you will plug your phone in with the lost pictures and you will see it come up with a camera icon possibly multiple icons will have all of your pictures in it. Create a New folder and select all the pictures and drag them into this new Folder (This is just for Safety as i said earlier we will be messing with the file system and you want to have these backed up in case anything goes wrong)
Once you have taken care of all the backup and saftey issues we can move on to restoring them photos. The Fist thing that you will do is in iFunBox click on the left side Raw File system. Then you will click photo data.
Once you click Photo Data it will bring up a screen that looks like this or a variation of this.
The File that is selected above is the culprit here its photos.sqlite
First things first copy this file to your desktop (just to have backed up)
then to fix your photos you just need to delete this file.
If deleting this file does not work there are two others you must delete 99% of the time deleting the above file works:
Once this file has been deleted all you need to do to recover your beloved pictures is unplug and power off and then back on your phone. Once your phone is back on go to the camera roll it may still be blank at first just give it a few minutes and all of your photos will slowly start to restore depending on how many you have and like magic you are done!

The iOS 6 / 6.1 untethered jailbreak has now become a reality, thanks to the hard work from those involved in the newly formed Evad3rs jailbreak team. The release of the new userland-based Evasi0n jailbreak tool means that users now have an extremely efficient way of making a complicated background process seem extremely simple.
Supported firmware versions:
iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1 are all supported.
- A computer running at least Windows XP or above, Mac OS X v10.5 or above, Linux
- An iOS device running iOS 6.x
- A USB cable for connection your iOS device to your computer.
How-to jailbreak iOS 6.1 (instructions):
If you happen to be one of those who have been waiting extremely patiently for this jailbreak, then you’ve come to the right place. Follow our extremely simple step by step guide below to jailbreak your iOS device on iOS 6 / 6.1 fully untethered.
a. It is highly recommended to make a complete backup of your device using either iTunes or iCloud before proceeding with the steps below.
b. If you happen to have followed our guide for older A4 based devices for tethered jailbreak iOS 6.1, the good news is that you can easily convert your tethered jailbreak into untethered by installing “evasi0n 6.x Untether” from Cydia.
Step 1: Download Evasi0n jailbreak tool tailored for your OS (Windows / Mac / Linux).
Step 2: Download iOS 6.1, and update your device to it using iTunes. Make sure you restore your device to 6.1 using iTunes, and not OTA, to avoid issues with jailbreak. Even though Evasi0n supports all versions of iOS 6, it is recommended to update to the latest 6.1 version before jailbreak so that you can get all the new features of iOS 6.1, with the added bonus of jailbreak.
Step 3: Make sure you don’t have any passcode set on your device. You can disable Passcode lock from: Settings –> General –> Passcode Lock –> Off
Step 4: Make sure both iTunes and Xcode (if installed) are not running.
Step 5: Start the Evasi0n jailbreak tool on your computer.
Step 6: Connect the relevant iOS device to your PC or Mac via the 30-pin or Lightning cable (depending on the generation of the hardware). Make sure that the connected hardware is recognized by the jailbreak tool.
Step 7: Select the Jailbreak option and relax as the software performs the necessary steps in the background to inject and run through the jailbreaking process.
Step 8: Be patient, do not touch your device or anything on computer during jailbreaking process.
Step 9: Once done, you will need to unlock your iOS Device, you will then see a “Jailbreak” app on the home screen. Tap on this icon, the screen will go black for a few seconds. After a short while, it will be back on the home screen.
Step 10: Rest of the process is automated, once the Evasi0n software on desktop says “Jailbreak complete!”, after a short while, your device will reboot several times to complete the process. Once this is done, you will have Cydia on the home screen.
Running Cydia on iOS 6.1
Start Cydia from the home screen of the device. Be aware that the first run of Cydia after a jailbreak will require the owner to choose what type of user they are (user, developer or hacker) as well as a run-through of some initial repository setup. Please be patient as this could take some time depending on server load.
As always, remember that the release of any new jailbreak will always see an initial spike in activity at first release. The servers of Cydia and the stock repositories are expected to handle an unusually high load in the first few days, so expect some possible delays and frustrating moments when trying to load and refreshing data.
