iFunBox Recovers PhotoStream Photos [@ifunbox_dev, #PhotoStream, #iOSDev]

After the announcement of iOS 8, I realized that I had an old iPhone 4 lying around, and locked away inside that device were some photos that I had a feeling were on the device, but not in the PhotoStream for the associated iCloud account. So the next question was… how do I get at those photos? Is it even possible?

Then I remembered that a former coworker had recommended a utility called iFunBox (Twitter: @ifunbox_dev) and it seemed like it might be the right tool for the job.

Turns out it worked very well. I was able to use iFunBox (awful name, sorry guys.) to navigate through the file system and find the PhotoStream files and save them!
