Well if you experiment a lot with ur phone like i do, u’ll probably need to restore it or upgrade it every now and then to get the latest treat Apple has to offer you..
Also it’s much better to have a fresh start without restoring from backup because system files are changed with every new upgrade. So if you’re currently running a 1.x.x or a 2.x.x firmware and are shooting for the 2.2 you might want to consider backing up your SMS as it will be lost forever once you choose the option “New iPhone” when prompted.
The contacts, bookmarks, calendars and everything are probably already backed up on ur pc if you are using a Mac or Outlook if you’re running windows. The photos are easily copied to your hard disc too. So all u have left to worry about is your SMSes.
- Jailbroken iPhone
- OpenSSH Installed on your iPhone – install from cydia !
- SSH into your phone
- You’ll find the needed file in the directory /User/Library/SMS (Which is an alias to /var/mobile/Library/SMS)
- Restore sms.db to the same position by replacing the file.
