    Question [Advice] how to recover contacts.db ?

    Well 1rst my pc screwed up so i had to reload the OS & then my iphone went in to a continual slide to unlock loop so i had to do a restore on it before i got a chance to back it up so i lost all my contacts & everything......... My question is isnt there some software or something out there which will scan the iphone and perhaps potentially recover the contacts.db somehow


    Any help greatly appreciated

    what you are asking for is something like Drive Genius, now the main problem is that Drive genius won't see your iphone as a disk immediatly, and i got no idea how to get past that...

    Apparently a company named Paraben has a forensics toolkit that works partially, see http://www.paraben-forensics.com/han...forensics.html

    Nervegas (an iphone hacker) also has one, but he states explicitly that "this is for active duty, sworn law enforcement only. Don't contact me if you're a student, a consultant, part-time rent-a-cop, a hot chick, some poor dude who screwed his girl's phone up, or just a really nice person. All requests that are not from law enforcement will be ignored." (posted at http://www.zdziarski.com/ on April 11).

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    probably easier to get your info back off your PC, unless you did a 7-pass low-level format, or your drive died all your data will still be there. However, it's not the easiest thing in the world to do, unless you know exactly where the files you want are.
    Peace,

    Dok
