Backup SMS (sms.db) on your iPhone the easy way (openSSH)
We all love SMSs from our loved ones, don’t we? I always had issues with SMS since I tend to loose them with so many different firmware installs and I always have issues with setting up the iPhone from a backup (it just messes everything up!).
Anyway, openSSH comes to your rescue! Make sure you have openSSH installed via Cydia or installer and boom, use Fugu, Cyberduck or any FTP tool (Windows and Mac) and login to your iPhone (ip address from WiFi settings, username : root, password : alpine, port: 22).
This is the path you have to check for SMS.db file which has all your SMSs!
Copy the SMS.db file locally and make sure you update the cop before and after you restore a new firmware! Told ya its easy 🙂 Lemme know if you have any issues with this process…
