Hi, 2 days before the end of a vacation my iPhone went into "restore needed. iPhone cannot make or receive calls. Restore from iTunes" mode (unknown IMEI and ICCID). I checked the troubleshooting pages and talked to the Apple hotline. It seems that this restore via iTunes (if possible) will set the phone back to its original state and then restores from the last backup. This will delete all photos, GPS tracks etc. collected on the vacation.

Is there any way to save this data, i.e. to access the flash memory directly - while the phone is still disfunctional and before restoring from the last backup?

-Thanks for any help-

iPhone 3GS, iPhone OS 3.0.1
