Nobody cares about jailbroken iOS devices. Even Apple only care if you take it for a warranty repair (as handing a jailbroken device to them and saying "this doesn't work" will probably get a response of "well, you jailbroke it"). I would say relax and don't panic. To answer the first part of the question, doing a system Restore will remove all traces of ...

I've encountered a similar error on my iPhone 4S while restoring an iCloud backup. I fixed it by simply updating the firmware/iOS version to the latest version available from Apple. Latest iOS 7.1.2 was out at that time but I was running outdated iOS 7.0.4. Once the phone restored with the latest iOS version, I was able to restore from iCloud. So update your ...

And if you do not connect your external hard drive to your laptop, then you can access iPhoto? This is how I interpret your question... iPhoto remembers the last selected iPhoto library - may be this is the problem? The solution might be: hold down the option key (ALT) and launch iPhoto: iPhoto will show you a dialog with different options: either you can ...

Background iPhoto and external storage It's true that with a normally running operating system on a Mac, an iPhoto library can be stored on an external drive. Normal running of iPhoto will involve file system writes to the iPhoto library and elsewhere. Time Machine and the file system When Time Machine backs up to an HFS Plus file system, most of the ...

When you restore with Migration Assistant or the recovery drive, it lets you choose which files you want to restore (usually "System", "Settings", "Accounts", etc). This isn't quite what you asked for, but you could uncheck whichever category contains that corrupted file as long as it's not part of the system. Just restore enough to get your system running. ...

Once you have upgraded your Macintosh's operating system there is no going back without already owning an official CD or a backup of the operating system available. You are going to have to buy a complete new CD from the shops as said above are quite cheap so you may want to consider checking your local store. Also I am running on a Late-2009 iMac so your ...

It might not be the most user-friendly way, but one possibility would be to locate the backup file in finder (very probably in Backups.backupdb/latest on your TimeMachine drive), navigate to Macintosh HD/Users/[user]/Pictures. Right-click the iPhoto-library, and choose 'show package contents'. Then open the Masters folder, and navigate to the date ...

The Time Machine Restore program might fail because it is a different model. I once tried to restore my hackintosh from my time machine backup. I had customized the model to be a 'MacBookPro8,3', so Time Machine stored that. But to boot the Apple install CD, I used the nawcom mod CD first. Nawcom told the Apple install CD that my computer was a ...

This is completely doable. I recently swapped the 480 GB SSD from my MacBook Pro with a 250 GB SSD from my Mac Pro which was before part of a RAID0 configuration. Long story short, fired up setup, told it to recover from Time Machine and both machines were back in their previous state in no time. Technically, you should be able to just swap the hard drives, ...

I've had the best results restoring from Time Machine to a freshly formatted drive. I did this for a machine with lots of system modifications, (httpd.conf, ssh_config) and all of these files were restored. When I did that with an OS in place these files were missed. There were no problems when I restored to a clean drive. Everything was restored properly. ...

I always did that -- in fact, if you did NOT upgrade OS version I'd just copy the folder wholesale. Restoring from a Time Machine backup would do something similar, and equally dumb -- I had problems with Mail once because time machine had passed a preference file across between OS versions, and the pref file conflicted with the new Mail [1], so Time ...
