Thread: Iphone Contacts Help Please,

    Default Iphone Contacts Help Please,
    Hey everyone,

    So, my iPhone 3G took a poop on me, it kept on restarting but I managed to get it into recovery mode and restore it with a fresh 3.1.2 ipsw and synced it with iTunes. After that, I re-jailbroke it.

    When I synced it with iTunes it asked me if I wanted to like, sync it with a previous backup and I had 1 where it had all my old info (Contacts, sms conversations, photos, notes, etc.) I clicked that one, but it didn't apply any of it.

    I used a program called Iphone backup extractor for windows to extract my notes, sms conversations, and photos, but not my contacts

    My backup is like a folder though, it's not an IPSW, it's a folder containing a lot of files in .mdinfo format, but I guess the extractor recognizes it and so does iTunes.

    Since iTunes couldn't apply my restore correctly, I had to SSH into my phone and manually put back my sms conversations, photos, and notes.

    The most important thing though, is my contacts and I can't seem to get them.

    I know they have to be on there if everything else is on there but nothing is working or applying right I guess.

    I extracted the AddressBook from var/mobile/library in the extractor, and then tried to apply it in my phone, but it didn't work.

    Is the contacts saved anywhere else or is there another program I could use to get my contacts from this backup?

    Sorry for the long story, just trying to be detailed.

    Thanks in advance,


    EDIT: Apparently, I imported my sms conversations wrong and now I can't send texts
