Can I recover or extract an app from a backup file? Tried a restore, got an error.
Hi, I am trying to restore my ipad back to 9/22 because I have an app that has not worked since the app had an update last week, (so the update caused a malfunction with the app). I need to use the app for work if possible- it would make things much easier if I could use it, so I backed my ipad up on another computer and plugged into my original computer (the one I did the backup on, way back on 9/22) and I clicked restore from that version, and after 10 minutes or so I got an error: itunes could not restore the ipad because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the ipad being restored.
I assume this may be due to the iOS 6 update (I believe I backed it up right before I did the update). I know I can not go back to the old OS, so I take it there is an incompatibility preventing the backup from going through.
Is there any way to force the backup (even if some apps are buggy that is fine, as long as I can use my work program I would be happy). If that will not work then is there any way to manually backup or extract an app from the backup file itunes created? If so then I could delete the current installation of the app on the ipad, and manually install the older version.
