Total iPhone Backup
Authored by: jayhawkbabe on Feb 21, '11 11:47:20AM

Unless I've misunderstood, this post is slightly misleading.

Various media files can be accessed from an unjailbroken device using PhoneDisk, but the root of the filesystem (what I assume the author means by "the root level of the device"), which contains system files and application settings, can only be mounted using PhoneDisk on a jailbroken device.

I've just double checked that this is true on my unjailbroken iPhone--only media shows up as a mount in /Volumes. I no longer have any jailbroken devices, but as I recall a second mount (root) was created when the iOS device was mounted using PhoneDisk. The system files and whatnot were located here.
