Restore SMS history from one phone to another
Authored by: zpjet on Jun 29, '09 10:05:41AM

So what is actually in these files? Is it SMS only? or another data as well?

I'm looking for another solution: would it be possible to MERGE two files with SMS? I had the first phone, then got 3g, did it as new one for a reason i don't remember, and still have the old files which i wouldn't mind to add - so just i could show off, look, these are texts i keep since i bought the first iphone.

Thanks in advance if someone figures this out!

No, there are 2 files for each app. 1 is the info file which identifies with the app. That's the .mdinfo file and the .mddata file contains setting and, well, data for the app.

I think these identifiers are universal accross all apps. I can tell the one for the FaceBook app is: 384eb9e62ba50d7f3a21d9224123db62879ef423
-that's based on randomly browsing it's data file.

The mdinfo file contains some identifier that's broken up into 8 character sections and I don't know if it's possible to convert them into real names.

Well, all the above is said is still ture, but I've got 1,923 files in the backup folder!!!!!!! That's including 3 non related files and 2 for each so that means there's still 960 pairs of files! I've got no more than 80 apps on my phone!
