Is There Anyone Has the Misery as Mine?
Don’t know if anyone of you also encountered the same accident as mine: My iPhone 4S data was eaten by my failed iOS update yesterday. I was extremely worried because so much precious data housed in my iPhone 4S, and somewhat angry by my fool behavior! Yet, I suddenly remember I made a backup for my iPhone 4S last week. I can recover my data from my iTunes backup! So I head for my iTunes backup feverishly.
But what held back my hope is that the iTuneskeeps asking fora password!
I never set a password indeed! Why?
What I Do to Remedy My Fool Behavior?
I heard that iPhone Backup Unlocker can help unlock iPhone backup password. I downloaded it holding the attitude to have a try. What to my joy is that it really worked!
There is also a video iPhone Backup Unlocker that clearly shows the using steps. Following the given steps, I got my iTunes backup password easily. I’m a lazy people and don’t want to take much time to catch the operation by a long manual when using a tool. Yet I think this iPhone Backup Unlocker is so fit for me, without any hard-to-understand instruction and complex operation. I get my iPhone backup password with this trick without any hassle!
What a Ridiculous Password in the End!
The password to unlock and restore the backup for my iPhone 4S ended up being a password that I used to encrypt my HTC screen about a year ago. So ridiculous! I bet I never set it for my iTunes backup! But life sometimes is so boring to make a joke!
If any of you also run into the same problem, hope this helps! Always have a good day!
