iPhone SMS backup

Filed under: Uncategorized — heredago @ 16:51

To backup your messages SSH into /private/var/mobile/Library and copy the folder “SMS” to your PC then copy it back after the upgrade.
For Bite’s setting, they are in /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences “com.bitesms.plist

Also you may want to backup “AddressBook”, “Notes” and “Calendar” folders too.

One more thing, make sure of the SMS folder and sub files/folders ownership is set to “mobile” for both Group and Owner.
