Subject: Recommendations for an iOS recovery tool?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

So the son of a client has an iPod Touch 4 stuck in a boot loop. No backup, but the content is important to him. "My life is on that thing, coolest playlists in the school" type of thing.

Parents are willing to pay me, even the software I need to rescue the data. Question is now: What's the best tool for a task like that?

There seems to be a bunch of programs on sale, I currently lean towards either Icarefone or Dr.Fone (full suite). The latter seems a bit on the expensive side, even with discount vouchers I found. Do you have some insights to share?

For the record: I bought iCareFone and it was able to repair the iOS. Data seems intact, didn't dare to dive into the hell of teenage content on the phone. Will give more feedback when the thing is returned to owner.

Btw, it didn't work out the first times, it finished with an "omg can't do anything" message the first time, the second time it just stalled. I had to give it a third go after some reset and reboot, but then it worked. Although the process was frighteningly slow.

While I find the touchbar useful in some very niche applications, its overall utility just doesn't compare with having a row of real function keys. In fact, more often than not, I find one of my fingers rests right on the ESC virtual-key, making web-browsing and working with Vim an interesting experience, to say the least.

I still insist a row of physical keys, each with e-ink faces if you REALLY need app-specific functionality imprinted on them, would remain a vastly superior alternative. I mean, if this is cheap enough for mobile phones, surely it can be made cheap enough for consumer keyboards as well.

Oooh, I hadn't noticed that the touchbar had replaced a row of actual function keys. That's awful.
