    Hello guys!

    I restored my iPhone 4S from iOS 6 beta 4 to 5.1.1,and i can't use my iOS 6 backup because newer iOS backup can not be restored to an older iOS(in my case 6 backup to 5.1.1).

    So i tried with iBackUpBot,saved the callhistory.db and sms.db from iOS 6 backup and imported them to the 5.1.1 backup(clear backup),but when the restore finishes,everythings stays how it was.

    So my question is,is there a way to restore my Call History and Messages?Or if i want them,i have to use iOS 6?

    Thanks in advance!

    You have to import the .info files, not the .db's. Although when I restored my messages, they were from 5.0.1.

    Strange too, considering the .info's are small in size. :confused:

    This can't be done between iOS 6 to iOS 5, they database has changed in such a way that it can't easily be downgraded.
