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.

iPhone 4S iOS 5.0.1 (jailbroken)
