Tristar Posted January 4, 2012 Report Share Posted January 4, 2012 I had found a tutorial somewhere on GM somtime back regarding backing up & restoring of Messages & Calender somewhere on DM forum, but don't remember where and since i didn't see one one i felt i should share . This method doesn't need any sort of app to be installed, just follow the instructions below and you will be able to backup or restore it in a matter of secs But make sure your phone is hacked first. Also make sure the openforall.rmp patch is active when doing this. Back up your messages Make a backup of the SMSs and emails in the built-in Symbian messaging application of your phone. 1. Hack your phone to get access to the c:\private folder. 2. Copy the entire folder: c:\private\1000484b\ to a safe place, such as your memory card or computer, or email it to yourself from your phone. If you want to email it, make a .zip file from the folder first. If you've told your phone to store messages on your memory card, copy the folder e:\private\ 1000484b\ instead. The built-in Symbian file browser can't see the c:\private folder, so use a file browser like X-Plore or Filebrowser instead. The free version will do. Back up your calendar entries 1. Hack your phone to get access to the c:\private folder. 2. Copy the file: c:\private\10003a5b\Calendar to a safe place, such as your memory card or computer, or email it to yourself from your phone. The built-in Symbian file browser can't see the c:\private folder, so use a file browser like X-Plore or FileBrowser instead. The free version will do. If u want to restore just do the opposite, i.e copy the backup files and replace in the appropriate folder and Voila its Restored !! Note: If ur messages are in your memory card then the folder would be something like this e:\private\1000484b\ Please let me know the original member who share the method so i could give him/her the credit Also this Trick seems to be good for backing upto 1500 messages, cause anything more than that, users mention it taking hours [screenshots added] [img width=236 height=420] Also if u feel this is a repost, please do let me know b4 i start to upload the screenshots or i would simply be wasting time too late Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
