    Default Modifying call log

    I needed to delete a SINGLE call record without jailbreaking, which I was succesful by using 'iBackupboot' for iPhone.

    Now, I need to INJECT a call record to a certain time/ date. I know this must be physically possible since its just a sqlite db.

    My question is this, do I need to jailbreak it to get this deep, or is there a way to use iBackupboot to do this?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Think I found a possible solution, I am using SQLite DB viewer, and I am attempting to load the call_history.db but so far no luck, but I am close.

    I GOT IT!!! All by myself. Well, I was able to modify the call log using sqllite, now I just need to replace the new call_log.db somehow. How can I drag and drop?

    Is THIS something ya guys can help me with? I swear I did most of the work.

    You can just overwrite the database and reboot the phone -- make note of what ownership and permissions are applied to the database before you replace it, and ensure the replacement database has the same rights and ownership.

    You *DO* need to reboot for it to work, if you just check after replacing, it won't look like it worked.

    I don't believe you need to be jailbroken as you're only modifying data in /var/mobile/Library/, and I believe that's available before breaking out of the sandbox.

    In either case, if you're running 4.0/4.0.1, you can jailbreak at jailbreakme.com if you find you don't have access without jailbreaking.

    I appreciate your patience, I am desperate at this point. Thanks for the link. Link doesn't seem to work, as there is no link on that page to anything.. Second, my phone is 4.0.2 ,which that site says will not support a jailbreak, only 4.0.1.

    So, I guess my last question is, if there is a chance it's accessible without jailbreaking, which program do you recommend? iPhone File Explorer will only give me access to the "MEDIA" folder, not the "VAR" folder...

    I just answered my question, CRAP, it does require a jailbreak. Just tried three different file browsers, and the var/library folder is not visible.

    Not to blow up this thread but the weird thing is, it's located here:

    private/var/mobile/Library/CallHistory/call_history.db

    Yet it can be VIEWED without being jailbroken via iBackupBot..but not modified..?

    I believe the /private folder is read-only to USB / remote connection devices until the afc2 service is added (part of the jailbreaking process that breaks you out of the sandbox). I think that the core system can write to that, and you can read from it -- but you can't write to it.

    So what you're seeing is expected behavior, I hate to say.

    With a 3GS, you can downgrade to 4.0/4.0.1 if you have an SHSH on file for the iOS -- do you?

    Also, I personally use iPhoneBrowser. It does a couple things that are a nuisance (or a help, depending on how you look at it), but all in all, it's the most useful free one that I've found.
