These are instructions on how to install and use TimeCapsule to make backups of your iPhone. If you are using the 2.0 or higher firmware you should follow the updated instructions for Chronus here

Currently, the TimeCapsule only supports backup/restore of the following apps: AddressBooks contacts, Call History, Calendar, Installers sources (restore may not work due to permission problem in some firmwares, refer to FAQs for solution), Maps bookmarks & history, Maps caches, Notes, Safaris bookmarks & history, SMS, Transits Preferences, Stocks, VoiceMail, Weather, and WorldClock
