iPhone/iOS Backup Extractors

Taken from: http://supercrazyawesome.com/ ; What does it do? This application converts the iPhone / iPod Touch backups that are created by iTunes into readily usable Mac OS X files. It is designed to run on Mac OS X Leopard only. What’s it used for? Extracting application resources for developers to help them investigate bugs. Exploring files that are created by third party applications using Finder. Decoding the SQLite database files that are stored on the iPhone / iPod Touch, such as Call History, SMS messages, and Notes


The other iOS Backup extractor that I like to use is iScavange.  iScavange has an easy to use interface and is simpler to understand for novice users.


Scanpst.exe


This zip file contains the Microsoft scanpst.exe repair tool. It also contains all the dependencies/dll’s. It has been scanned and is free of viruses.

Haywyre – Everchanging

I love this track so much.  It offers a very unique vibe, smooth bass line, and interesting vocals.  The piano hidden throughout the track and at the end is also a very nice touch.  Very interesting to listen to!
