I recently had to replace my hard drive on my Macbook and now that I have replaced the drive I would like to recover the pictures on my iphone.


I was able to get the camera roll photos using image capture but I am unable to get the photo albums that were synced from my previous iphoto library.  My iPhone 4S is jailbroken so I could go in via SSH but the problem is that I cannot even locate the photos.


Is there a way to get those photos back onto my Macbook? 


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Macbook 3,1 OS 10.6.8

iPhone 4S iOS 5.0.1 (jailbroken)

The photos "synched" from a computer to your iPhone aren't really the original photos.  They're low resolution thumbnails suitable for display on the phone, but not practical for anything else.  If you didn't bother to save the original photos before replacing your computer's hard drive, your pictures are gone.
