iBaReS is an easy to use integrated tool for backup and restore of iPhone and iPod Touch via Wireless LAN.
Apple's iTunes will only backup the standard settings and re- sync your media when doing an upgrade or you may lose all your data when a restore is necessary due to any reason.
For all "enhanced" (jailbroken) iPhones you have to re-do all 3rd party applications and settings after any firmware update. Therefore I developed iBaReS to save all your treasured additional applications, settings and data before and update/ restore and easily put all the stuff back onto the iPhone without spending hours and hours all over again with the ever same tasks.
