Thread: Manual iPhone Contacts Backup/Restore Problem

    Default Manual iPhone Contacts Backup/Restore Problem
    Hey ModMyI community, I have a problem with my contacts database. I manually backed it up in private\var\mobile\Library\AddressBook. Now I am trying to place the files back in the same location except the permissions are all wrong. I need to know what the permission for these files is. I tried 0755 and the contacts are still not saving and after awhile, the apps that uses the contacts crash. Any help would be appreciated.

    Do you have SBSettings? I believe it has a "fix permissions" function.

    I had a similar problem the other day with all my SMS that had been manually backed up in a similar manner. I had to change the DB file permissions to "mobile" to make the SMS app not crash.

    The sbsettings did not work for some reason, but I used iFile and changed the thing to mobile like u said and it worked.
