Total iPhone Backup - requires jailbreak
Authored by: everkleer80 on Feb 22, '11 06:25:28AM

Umm... yes, PhoneDisk works, but as many have said, you can't access the root without jailbreaking.

From the FAQ on the website:

How do I get access to the real-root on my device?

Gaining access to the "real" root of the iPhone requires jailbreaking the device and in many cases installing "afc2add" from Cydia. Once you've got that figured out, from the Phone Disk menu make sure to connect to the "root" instead of the "media" one.
Perhaps you can tell us how to get a full system backup without having access to the whole system?

You are correct; to gain full access requires jailbreaking. I have amended the hint accordingly.
