That won't work, and you're not posting exe links here.

The problem is I can't verify what it is, and in any case, no software will extract anything from a password-locked phone.

Really Spockers? For future reference password or not you can access the photos.. I have video proof if you want ;P I've also removed passwords from devices where people could prove ownership so they could recover their data.

I just tried shshing into the phone and it works. Found the photos in /private/var/mobile/Media/PhotoData/Sync/100SYNCD and the camera roll is /private/var/mobile/Media/DCIM/100APPLE. just make sure you have the phone plugged into a power source.

We found the pics on his pc!! So we just restored it.. Shitty he has to drive to his dads and use the back up from the original pc! But worth it to keep contacts etc... Thanks for the replies

When you connect your device to your PC, doesn't it always also finds a camera named how you named your iPhone, if you click on that you can view and extract any pictures, also openSSH is also an option, but more complicated I see you did it already so.

Nope, not w/o the password. That's what the password is for. ;P
