I restored my 3GS yesterday (nothing wrong - just experimenting) as a new phone. However, after the restore, I had one photo in my camera roll! I have no idea where this pic came from; it's definitely not a shot I took. Any ideas?

Here's the pic:



And here's the black thumbnail for the pic:

What is it of? Post it.
Can you find it anywhere on your computer? And have any other iPhones synced to that computer?

I've read something similar in a recent post, but in that case the op forgot he snapped that shot.
Is it a picture of anything connected to you, like family or your house?
Mysterious.

If you google images: 'box robot flower' that picture comes up as wallpapers. Now how it got onto your phone after a restore as new is odd. Have you ever used it as a wallpaper on your computer?

I attached pictures.

I've never seen that pic before, and I have sole access to my iPhone and my computer. It's no biggie, but it sure is a puzzler.

Nope. It's a totally unknown picture to me.

Do you have an app called Backgrounds? That's how I got that pix saved on my iPhone.

But it was there after he restored as new which means that there was no data on the phone.

It does looks like a background from that app mentioned above.

I'm curious to how your phone still looks Jailbroken (noticed the status bar) if you restored? Mark
Sometimes, certain apps that you install to do things when you're jailbroken don't ever completely leave the phone. This is true of SBSettings when you have the digital battery. Even after restoring, you can show the percentage. At least, this happened on the 3g.

But that picture wasn't in my camera roll before the restore.

No, I know....i was answering Mark's question about how your phone still looked jailbroken even after the restore.

I have no idea about the picture.....It's a funny pic though. Kinda makes me giggle. :005:snicker

I believe the last time we had the phantom picture problem, it was boiled down to an app that saved images to the camera roll, no? What apps had you installed before this happened?

That pic comes from a theme for winterboard called "un-unlockable". It's a clear lockscreen theme.

I bet it's remnants from being jailbroken. I jailbroke my iPhone, and then did a restore. But, oddly enough it kept the carrier name I gave it - Ivan. I had to restore again...

NP you have some strange looking avators so is it possible that you snapped off a shot of yourself and you're waiting for us to say the little guy is adorable before you reveal that it's you?:eek:k:eek:k
