In my texts, I accidentally deleted a whole conversation from a person by accident! I haven't backed up my phone in a month, and the conversations with this person are from many years.
Is there a way I can extract just this persons text messages out of my apple backup, and put it back into my phone for this particular person? If I do a normal restore from backup to get it back, everything else will be reverted back to a month old (new texts in the past month, etc) and not current like my phone is now.
I am jailbroken if that helps.

That'd be a no, sorry it's not possible without a restore to that backup.

Are you 100% on this? Isn't there a way to extract the text message database with programs? But if so, that would overwrite everything I think.

There is Undelete SMS on Cydia... It says it's not guaranteed to work but it may... Seems like that would be an option worth trying...

Thanks. I'll try the cydia one. I'm trying to get the texts back onto the phone, just from that one person that I deleted.
