    Default SMS crashes when migrating sms.db from 3.0 to 4.0

    Hi,

    Summery: My SMS app crashes on OS 4.0 with an sms.db from 3.0

    I have an iPhone 3G which had OS 3.0. I recently installed 4.0 (pwnage tool 4.1). I did not want to restore the data since I wanted a clean install and most of my data is synced anyway with gmail and such. The only thing that was missing is the sms.db

    I extracted the sms.db from a backup of my 3.0 system (using iPhone Backup Extractor app), and copied it to the new 4.0 system. Opening the SMS app I saw all of my texts and was very happy. Until I tried to send a text which caused the app to crash. I then noticed that deleting texts and quitting the app doesn't really delete them. When I reopen the SMS app they're still there.
    It's as if the app can't write to the DB properly.

    I checked permissions and they seem to match the original sms.db that was on the 4.0 system.

    I also used an SQLite editor to make the 3.0 db as similar to the new 4.0 db but no luck.

    Has anyone managed to hack this thing??

    Thanks
    Yaron

    Default

    Some more info:
    I tried just copying a working sms.db from OS4.0 to my Mac (using scp in terminal) then copying it back and fixing ownership. The problem persists - the SMS opens it but can't write to it.

    Anyone?

    OK... problem solved.

    Apparently a restart of the phone is needed. Pretty silly not to try it before, but that' it.

    Doh. I read your post and meant to reply to you asking if you had rebooted. Looks like I didn't. ()

    Glad you got this taken care of -- you will always have to reboot if you replace any of the databases directly on the iPhone, while some will work partially before the reboot, you need the reboot for them to be properly initialized.
