    I have a now Jailbroken iPhone 3G running the custom 3.0 firmware (used Pwnage Tool). After Jailbreaking I lost all of my contacts, apps, notes, photos, etc. as I did start the phone "as a new phone". I proceeded to sync the phone and thought my contacts would also sync, but I was wrong.
    The last Sync or backup of the phone I have is from before the 3.0 update and I did try to restore my contacts by copying the .sqlitedb addressbook files into the rootfolder "Addressbook/" I went to check my contacts on my phone and got nothing!
    Is this because the backup .sqlitedb files from the pre 3.0 firmware are different than the post 3.0 .sqlitedb files?
    Please help!!! I need these contacts! I have the .sqlitedb files and have tried reading them with the Firefox sq reader, but everything is scattered.


    FYI I have tried... Loading contacts from my SIM card and no luck...
