iPhone selective backup
I recently formatted my phone and restored 3.1.2 as new, but I refused to let it restore my previous backup. I wanted to start fresh but save ONLY my SMS and contacts.
I browsed through the phone through ssh and found respective folders.
After restoring 3.1.2 and jb, I also restored those directories and noticed my SMS and Contacts did in fact recover.
The issue is that I can no longer SMS or add contacts, though the previous states are there (I can see all my SMS history and all my previously loaded contacts). I eventually just deleted the SMS folder and figured I would just start over on them and it worked. However I really don't want to lose all my contacts and I really don't want to fully restore from that back up (my phone seems to be working so much better with this factory restore and just these two categories backed up).
Any ideas? Is there another way to selectively back up items?
