Have you Used libimobiledevice to Do a Complete iOS Backup?

Post by Kendoori »

I want to wipe my iPad Mini 4, but want to backup first. I don't want to pay for more iCloud storage, and don't want to pollute my PC with iTunes.

I discovered that http://www.libimobiledevice.org was already installed on my Mint 19.3, and ran successfully

Code: Select all

idevicebackup2 backup ~/Documents/iPadBackups/
If I ever need to restore, how complete and reliable is this after a wipe, or to a new device?
