I recently reimaged my iPhone, however I forgot to check my SMS history before deleting my original backup. I assumed, incorrectly, that it would sync via iCloud, or by the SMS Forwarding feature that brings these messages into Mac OS X Messages. So, I have no
sms.db, but I do have
chat.db and the supporting Attachments. Extensive searching turns up nothing.
How hard is it to translate a
chat.db file into an
sms.db file suitable for restoring from an iPhone backup? Major surgery? Minor hacking? Rename the file?
