	If I'm understanding you correctly.... iTunes does backup the binaries 
of the applications you have on your device.

	Also, if you can get the device to sync with iTunes at least once, 
there is an option to Sync over WiFi/network. So, for this to work, your 
Windows/Virtual Box guest would need to use Bridged networking. The 
iTunes machine & iOS device need to be on the same subnet.

	Possibility: Setup a real Windows machine with iTunes, sync once, setup 
WiFi sync. Then use a tool to turn that real machine into a VM?
