So I freed a bit of RAM using Sinful's Daemon Tool. Then rebooted and began again with realbackup.

I'm about 15 hours in, DCIM.tar size 395MB. Freeing some ram did not make a huge difference unfortunately.

PS gives the command line as "/usr/bin/tar -prf /private/var/mobile/Backup/may14b2/DCIM.tar IMG_0739.JPG" (of about 1200)

Each file is added to the archive individually, and then another file is added, and so on.

I wonder if this process would be much faster if the approach was tar of the directory instead? :-\

Closer to when the process started ([email protected]) tar time for each file was 11 seconds realtime (reading under 2 seconds CPU time).

The current tar time for each jpg is approx 3 minutes 20 seconds realtime. (reading 23 seconds CPU time) - and getting longer all the time.

As you can see, this will take a really long time to complete.

So, my backup finally completed. Yay!

But there is a problem - RealBackup requires an enhancement/bugfix relating to 'Camera Roll'. Here's why:

When you are shooting photos with iPhone, the photos are put in a folder called DCIM/100APPLE. Until...

You reach 999 photos - the next 999 photos are placed in a new directory DCIM/101APPLE (etc).

RealBackup does not capture from DCIM/101APPLE. (Note: The BTH and THM files for /101APPLE are in the archive correctly).

I'll tar those files in DCIM/101APPLE manually, and untar them on the destination :  ).

That should work right?

Logs attached.

I installed realbackup and all went fine and dandy...but when I clicked on the app icon, it opened, then closed before showing the program. I tried this a few times, to no avail...no joy there. And then, to make matters worse, I tried to uninstall the cydia installed cycorder, which had never worked, and during the removal process cydia got stuck on 'preparing to remove tape archive'. An hour or three later, cydia vanished altogether.

Is there any other way to install Realbackup to my phone????

I am waiting to backup my sms/contacts so that i can install whited00r and then restore contacts/sms.

are there any other ways to do this other than realbackup???

please help!

Whats your iDevice and what iOS version are you using?
All you did was installing RealBackup and Cydia and Realbackup arent working?
Did you see any error while installing?
from which repo did you download it?

Did your Cydia also stopped working? or was RealBackup just not starting?
