Thread: Contacts won't Sync or SSH

  1. #1
    Default Contacts won't Sync or SSH
    I stupidly sync'd my contacts with my PC and that worthless program iTunes deleted 1/2 of my contacts that I had added since the last sync.

    My wife's phone has most of the same #'s and is also jailbroken, so I SSH'd into it and grabbed her contacts list from this location
    var/root/library/addressbook/addressbook.sqlitedb

    dragged that to my PC, then SSH'd into my phone and dropped that file into the same location. I was thinking that would simply place her contacts into my phone.


    but nothing. I've resprung and rebooted. Nada.


    help me please. the permissions on the file are 0644

    success. got it to work. found a great guide here:

    post #12 specifically addressed my issue


    the newer phones store the contacts in the following location. I was replacing the wrong contacts list.
    proper location for newer phones is

    /private/var/mobile/Library/AddressBook
