How to Recover Deleted Photos After Jailbreaking with Spirit [Windows]

First release of spirit jailbreak came with a couple of bugs including deletion of Photos in camera roll. But Comex has fixed those bugs by release an updated Spirit jailbreak for all iDevices. But if you’re one of those unlucky iDevice users who lost their camera roll photos while jailbreaking with Spirit, there’s a way to recover deleted photos but it’s possible only if you had back up your iDevice before jailbreaking it with Spirit Jailbreak.

Now save save your backup to your Desktop or anywhere you want and click Next. Restoring multiple files from the backup may result in freezing iPhone Backup Extractor. Don’t worry, just wait and see.

STEP 6

Now SSH into iPhone with WinSCP, navigate to /User/Media/ and drag-and-drop the DCIM folder you backed up into your iPhone and overwrite the existing files.
