    Exclamation NOOOOO, Restored phone without backup!
    I don't know why....I must have been possessed or something....
    I restored a phone to 5.1.1 and realized that this phone was never backed up!

    Is there anyway to at least address book back?
    I'm panicing here. This phone is not on iCloud, never backed up.

    I tried googling and there are couple of using terminal command but I get access denied.

    Anyone have solid solution for this?

    Please help.

    If you never backed up there's no way you can recover any files
    If my post was good, click the button in my post

    New to jailbreaking? Have a look at my Redsn0w Guide

    It's because you're not logged in as root.

    Run these commands and you should be fine.

    Code:
    su root
    The password is alpine.

    I doubt those commands you found will do anything, but that's just for your reference
