    Anyone know how to read the iMessage stored in the sms SQL lite database ?

    Reading /Users/user/Library/Application\ Support/MobileSync/Backup/really_long_number/3d0d7e5fb2ce288813306e4d4636395e047a3d28 as a text file show that include sms and iMessage

    Exploring via SQL lite show only sms.

    Are they perhaps encrypted? Is it the actual message data or only a hash pointer?

    The file is readable in clear text, sms and iMessage, the database schema included don't fit for iMessage...

    Try on your backup file and see it
