HELP: address book emptied by iTunes sync
I upgraded Outlook, and want to backup iPhone address book to Outlook, but unfortunately address book became empty after sync.
I guess, Outlook address book is newer than iPhone address book, so iTunes overwrite old one with new one, but new one is empty, so I lost all my contacts.:(
By ssh to iPhone, I noticed:
/var/mobile/Library/AddressBook/AddressBook.sqlitedb is 56320 bytes
/var/root/Library/AddressBook/AddressBook.sqlitedb is 40960 bytes
The former one is the real one, so I guess the contact information is still there but some settings prevent them to be displayed.
1. I tried to use UltraEdit to open /var/mobile/Library/AddressBook/AddressBook.sqlitedb in hex mode, there're mess and some contact name & number, but there's no any mapping between contact name and number.
2. I also tried to use SQLite3 to display all tables in /var/mobile/Library/AddressBook/AddressBook.sqlitedb, but all tables are empty.
HELP! I believe there should be some way to rollback my address book.
