i tried using this solution because i lost all of my contacts after installing an exchange profile, but i get an error: Segmentation fault
any idea what's causing this?
Never had this one. It even works with fw 2.0.

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

Hi volkspost I found this through a Google search.

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

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)

Run mdhelper again and you should be set.
