If I want to sync my pictures with iTunes, I'll have to remove all my applications that are actually on my iPhone. Why? I have no idea, and that isn't something I am going to do, because 90% of my apps aren't on my computer (let's just say they weren't "legally purchased".)

Your computer should detect the iPhone as a camera as well, so open up whichever photo program you have and sync them like that.

EX: Mac: Plug in your iPhone -> Open up iPhoto -> Sync.

Use SSH on the iPhone and some FTP program (WinSCP, FileZilla etc.) to Transfer your pictures without using the iTunes.

I tried it via SSH but I want it in folders (and SSH sucks, I just use Total Commander), not just separate images.

I tried just dragging them on there since it is detected as a camera, but I can't transfer anything on there. I can only copy them to my computer or just delete them altogether.

Or u can upload pictures on your pc to a website that'll host pictures then open up that website and save them with the hold and save option on this phone. Sorry I can't reveal the names if the website. The mods will kill me.

I'll guess that you're using the iPhone plugin for Total Commander?

Why can't you transfer the files...I just read about this plugin here.

I don't know where to put them!

I can transfer single images to the 100APPLE folder (not sure what the 999APPLE folder is for), but I can't transfer whole albums. I have over 2000 photos that I want to put on and I want them to be in albums.

Have you looked into this:

/private/var/mobile/Media/Photos/

Do you not know how the photos on iPods and iPhones work? They are stored in a "Photo Database" file, usually in the Photos folder somewhere on your iPhone. There are TONS of apps where they can take the photos from that file, but it can't put stuff in it.

Yeah - I know that...;) But, maybe there's a program to convert this "Photo Database" file...I don't know.

But I'll guess that you have search all over Google...haven't you?

I'm not restoring.

See, when I choose the folders that have the pictures that I want to sync with in iTunes, and click Apply, it will say that I have to remove my apps because "I'm not authorized to play them". SO I just removed them all and I have to download them all again...all 70+ of them.

And AptBackup just does jailbroken apps.

Are you talking about cracked applications...the ones from AppStore?
