How to potentially recover lost data from an iPhone


Well I updated my iPhone to 4.3.1 and ran into some issues.  I was jailbroken on 4.0.1 with greenpoison, was having a few issues with random crashing and stuff so I thought that I’d update to see if it fixed it.  I sync’d my phone with iTunes before all of this as well, apparently it didn’t save anything though since I restored to a point a year ago.

I’ve been trying to scourer the interwebs for anything that will help, but a lot of help is scattered between a lot of posts from multiple forums.  I figured that while it’s still fresh on the brain that I’d try to share what I’ve found and the results I’ve had.

Recovery Programs

Everything I found had a price tag associated with it or it was for an operating system that I do not own.  The most useful was the iPhone backup extractor by reincubate.

Wow, lots to talk about right?  YES!  Lets sumerize.

  • I’m ok from my skydiving incident
  • I’m cancer free for now, and I believe forever (well at least anything having to deal with my testicles).
  • Rocky, my male dog, has cancer.  :(
  • I started school in the summer of 2010 and am currently pursuing BS degrees in Astrophysics, Physics and Applied Math with a goal of going to grad school for Astrophysics.

Ya, wow… I know right?  My first full semester I received a 4.0 gpa!  Other than Rocky getting cancer, everything has been going really well.  I really enjoy school and I’m looking forward to my future career change.  My past experiences can only help me so long as i allow them to, and I have no fear that they wouldn’t do that already.

This semester has been a bit hectic though, my calculus teacher doesn’t really speak to me in a language that I understand and chemistry is all new but also happening too fast.

My Testicular Cancer Story – Update 3

Well went to the appointment on Monday and basically heard everything about my options that I had already found answers for by doing research.  My pathology report was updated and apparently less than 1% of Teratoma was also found.  While it’s less than 1%, teratoma is not one that you want to have because it doesn’t respond to chemo and is only curred through removal.  Good thing I’m doing the RPLND then.  I am a perfect candidate for it because of my staging.  There is a possibility that chemo not cure me and that the cancer will come back.  Chemo will also put me out for 3-4 months depending on the type of treatment, well more like zombify me for that long.  I don’t think I could do school like that.  RPLND will suck for the first few weeks of recovery but after that I’m done (hopefully).

My Testicular Cancer Story – Chapter 2

Well I had the orchiectomy on May 20th.  Everything went well, although it did take me an extra hour to fully awaken.  Liz(Kim aka my wife), was stuck in the waiting room for 3 hours, 1 hour surgery 2 hour wake up time.  They told her in the beginning someone will come get her when I’m out but no one did.  Kinda lame.  When I could finally get up and into a wheel chair they wheeled me out to her and I remember how happy she was to finally see me.

So they didn’t prescribe me any anti-nausea medicine, and taking the lortab didn’t help relieve any pain and made me so nauseas that I felt even worse with pain.  So I stopped taking it because I have an appointment on the 21st which was originally scheduled for the checkup for after I would have been with antibiotics BUT I figured I’d use it to get some new pain med’s.

My Testicular Cancer Story - Chapter 1

I was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer on May 4th 2010.  I’ve only told some people and didn’t tell others.  If you are just finding out about this, I’m sorry and it’s not that I was trying to keep this from anyone but I really wanted to be able to inform people and answer questions that anyone might have but I can’t do that when I’m asking those very same questions.

Today was an important day because the ball is finally rolling.  I met with my Urologist today and he answered some of my fears with “More than likely it’s not” type of answers, which is very good.  The tumor is located on my right testi and has attached itself to my bloodstream.  What this means is that my right testi must be removed and then sent to a lab to see what type of cancer it is.  Depending on the type will determine the type of treatment I will receive afterwards.

Google Adsense Summary 1.0.3

Fixed a few bugs and changed a temp file location.  Updating is highly recommend.  The prior versions were making a ton of temp files in your temp directory that weren’t getting deleted out.  Please search your web hosting server for files that begin like “adsense_” and delete them all.

Temp files are now created in the google adsense summary plugin directory for easier troubleshooting should the event arise that we might not want to delete the cookie so we can troubleshoot the problem at hand.

Dislocated my shoulder during free-fall today.

Myself, Brandon, Carrie and another guy who’s name I can’t remember went to do a four way star today.  When we left the plan we were a bit unstable, it wasn’t too bad and it felt like we were going to correct it.  I was trying to help by pushing Carrie away from me so she could get more belly down but she ended up whipping in the opposite direction.  Because I was holding her grippers extra tight trying to push her away, when she twisted it dislocated my right shoulder instantly.

At this point I was pretty much in a lot of pain.  I tried to pull my main but I couldn’t get my arm to grab the hacky so I pulled my reserve around 7k-6k feet.  Under canopy now, I really had to push away the pain so I could steer towards the landing zone.

3 out 4 beer batches were still good!

So last October 20th I brewed 4 5Gal beer batches in a row.  I really didn’t even finish in the same day.  Anyways, I got busier and busier with work and kept putting it off to keg them.  It then go really cold and I didn’t want to freeze outside while trying to clean kegs and figured that it’d be cold enough that it would suspend the yeast so that the beer wouldn’t get ruined over the winter.  Well, today a friend of mine and myself kegged all four batches.  We tasted them all too.

Pilsner, Hefe, and the IPA were all great.  Flat, but still good.  They tasted how they should without carbination and didn’t give off any funny flavors.  The stout on the other hand was.. well..  rancid.  It first smelled like rotten millk, to me at least my friend didn’t smell it like that.  We each took a mouth full, swished it around and swallowed.

XKCD Rules!

One of the email lists I am apart of started bitching about how XKCD sucks.  Two predominate people stood out, one against XKCD and the other Pro XKCD.  It was such a worthless argument, almost as worthless as this post.  I did spend some time making fun of them though using a XKCD comic!

Enjoy!  Referenced Comic
