Extract iMessage conversations from sms.db (sorry to ask)
i know you guys are sick of this kind of question but I am having real problems and i need to extract the conversations from iMessenger on Ipad, its actually extremely important and i deleted the conversation by mistake.
Nearly all of the post I have found relate to the iPhone but I need the iMessages from my iPad2.
I do not have an itunes sync so needed to get the file straight off my iPad.
My iPad is not jailbroken and I opened iExplorier and then files>documents and was able to coopy the sms.db onto my window PC.
If i right click on it and open it as a text file I can see the conversations are there but of course
they are jumbled up with the sql code.
i have tried the SQL extension in Firefox, SQLite Expert, SQLite Browser, RazorSQL and a few different ones but none of them work.
In Firefox and SQLite for example, I can open the sms.db file and see all of the table names but when i try and view the data nothing shows.
This is puzzling because as I said, if i open sms.db as a text file I can see the messages, I just cant find a program that can extract them.
Can anyone kindly suggest what I can do as this is beyond my knowledge.
Thank you in advance
