I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and have an iPhone 5 using iOS 6.0.2. My question is how can I do a full backup on Ubuntu. Most questions I have seen on this are related to peoples music libraries etc how ever this is of little importance to me. What I want to be able to do is a complete (photos,contacts, OS etc) image backup (and restore if required).
So far I have looked up
libimobiledevice and this seems to be just that a API. Other suggestions are about Rhythmbox for music etc but this is not of huge importance to me. Finally the suggestion is for using iTunes and some combination of Wine or Playforlinux. But even if you get iTunes working iPhone access is limited.
Surely someone must have the same problem and found a solution.
