Thread: Accessing sms.db

    Question Accessing sms.db
    Hello all,
    My iPhone is jailbroken and I'm trying to access sms.db. I'm having trouble reading the SMS directory. The following call returns false:

    [fileManager fileExistsAtPath:@"/private/var/mobile/Library/SMS"]
    While the the following call returns true:

    [fileManager fileExistsAtPath:@"/private/var/mobile/Library"]
    Also the following call gives a Cocoa 257 error which has to do with read file permissions (I think):

    [fileManager contentsOfDirectoryAtPath:@"/private/var/mobile/Library/SMS" error:&error]
    I've tried changing the SMS directory to chmod 0777, but that doesn't seem to help. Is there anything I'm doing wrong? Thanks!
