Hi All, I'll try to access to SMS.db to read sms (only read mode) inside my application (jaylbreacked Iphone 2.2). I'm using sqlite3 library to access to SMS.db. To test my app I was copyed (by ssh access) sms.db in a bundle documents directory and then i can access sucesfully to the DB. But, when I try to access direct to /var/mobile/Library/SMS/sms.db to open DB it could be not possible, because sqlite3_open return not OK !!?? (insuffcients permissions !?) . NSString *path = @/var/mobile/Library/SMS/sms.db; // Open the database. The database was prepared outside the application. if (sqlite3_open([path UTF8String], &database) == SQLITE_OK .. Inside my application I had try, at startup, to copy sms.db in a bundle directory, and then access locally to it, but Filesystem copy operations return error to open original file . any ideas? -is it possible run application as root? -how can I manage sms.db? -applications as bitesms how can access to sms subsystem? BR Thanks!!! TeoG http://www.teog.it PS I'm developing a multilanguage SMS talker program. I've just porting multilanguage espeak TTS (text to speech) library to iphone.
