After trying to do a restore with iBaReS & looking at (root)/Library
in Cyberduck, I noticed that the Ringtones, Themes & Walpaper folders
were broken. I went to Cydia on the phone & reinstalled the Base
Structure package & this fixed the Ringtones & Wallpaper directories,
but not Themes. Themes may be a directory you only have if you've
installed a theme with Cydia or Icy, I don't know. I've simply deleted
the broken link for this folder for now. A new restore attempt with
iBaReS breaks these folders again, so the problem must be when the
restore begins to overwrite directories.
Can anyone tell me exactly where iBaReS places the files when you do a
standard backup? I am wondering if it is possible to remove the
'Themes' directory in the backup so it does not try to restore it.
After using Blackra1n to jailbreak my new firmware & fighting for more
hours than I care to mention attempting to get the phone back to where
I had it when using the previous firmware, I am missing all the
ringtones & wallpapers I had on my device, including the Apple
supplied standards. AptBackup was a huge help in getting most of my
jailbreak packages reinstalled but I am still missing some things. If
I knew where iBaReS places it's files, I hope to be able to restore
some of them manually with Cyberduck.
One other thing, maybe unrelated but I'm hoping someone here can
explain it to me. Before this most upgrade fiasco, when I logged into
the phone as root using ssh, it took me to the ACTUAL root directory
in Terminal or Cyberduck. Now upon login, it defaults to "/private/var/
root". Does anyone know or can anyone explain why this is & how to
revert it back to the old behavior?
Many thanks, all around.
