    Never had this one. It even works with fw 2.0.


    sorry I got no idea,

    Seg Fault is usually a local issue -- for instance, a bad binary file. Try to download it again and see if it works.

    It's probably too late by now for the OP, but I found this great guide to recovering deleted files from the iPhone. I had upgraded my phone to 2.0 and had forgotten to back up my photos first. This method got them all back!

    http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/fil...-recovery.html

    good luck....

    What you need is one of the folders with tons of numbers as the name, it's inside
    ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
    Place mdhelper in it and run e.g. ./mdhelper -C .jpg
    The tool will then extract all Jpegs and place it on the Desktop in a folder called "Recovered iPhone Files".
    You cant run the tool just on the .mdbackup files cause they are semi-encrypted. The information how to extract and de-crypt is sitting inside the file Manifest.plist thats in the folder aswell. For navigating the presence of Info.plist is necessary aswell.



    Wow, again this is a great tool from Erica! I just ran that on my backups, extracted all pics in about a minute.

    Forgot the download address:
    http://ericasadun.com/ftp/Macintosh/...-universal.zip

    One more: If you use ./mdhelper -C .sqlitedb you will get back all your Addressbook and Calendar data, .plist for bookmarks and map bookmarks, .db for sms and notes... ;-)

    Hope that helps,

    Hi volkspost I found this through a Google search.

    So mdhelper created a folder on my desktop called "Recovered iPhone Files". It has a bunch of .db files in it that I can't seem to open. Is there a way to get these back into my phone? I really need my notes and SMS especially.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

    As soon as your upgraded iPhone is "free" install OpenSSH via Cydia, then use WinSCP (Windows) or Cyberduck (Mac) to SFTP into the iPhone. Goto
    /private/var/mobile/Library/SMS
    Replace the file sms.db inside SMS with the one from the backup, restart the iPhone and you got em back. Same applies for call_history.db in CallHistory, ..
    You probably wont see an directory called Notes in Library. The directory is created once you create the first note. So on your iPhone create one note. Then you'll find Notes and in there notes.db. Replace the one aswell.


    hope this helps

    Unfortunately my backup was too corrupt to save my SMS and call history; they just showed up blank. I'm much happier that my notes were saved. Thanks a million. I'm going to rely on manual backups from now on.

    Thanks so far, I was able to recover some data.
    Now I've got a couple of .db files.
    But I don't know which one to use for replacing on the iphone.

    I've got 5 keychain db's, 5 call_history db's, 5 notes, 5 sms
    and three that read: 551926928.db

    Which one is the most recent?

    uuups. Do you have more than one iPhone? Usually iTunes sets up one backup folder per iPhone. You either got the data from 5 iPhones or iTunes set it up as new. What you can do is check (on a Mac)
    ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup
    Inside iTunes stores a backup for each iPhone in a folder, the name made of tons of characters and digits. Check the "last edited" to find out the correct folder if you only own one iPhone. On the desktop create a new folder and move the other four there.
    Run mdhelper again and you should be set.
