Backing up updating and restoring ios software localdating
One of the upgrading issues that always bothers me is the fact that i Tunes doesn’t make it easy to copy your text message history to a new device; your only option is to restore from a backup, and that doesn’t always work.
Unfortunately even third party utilities like i or Copy Trans Contacts are currently unable to transfer SMS and i Message history between devices since i OS 5 and up.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to backup your SMS and i Messages, and we will also show you how to transfer these messages from one device to another…Note: This tutorial is intended to instruct savvy jailbreakers on manually overwriting system files.
If you’re not copying Attachments and Drafts over, leave the original folders.
First we need to get the i Message and SMS database files off the old i Phone. Step 1: With your old i Phone connected to your computer, open i Fun Box and click on the i Fun Box Classic tab.
Step 2: Open your device and access the Raw File System. Copy the contents of the SMS folder to your computer.
Besides, it also supports retrieving data from i Tunes and i Cloud backups.
