I finally made the jump from 2.0 to 2.02 on my 2nd gen iPhone after the new winpwn came out. Well after it performed the restore, I was unable to get my mail to work at all... Long story, but I ended up reinstalling 2.02 and then had it load up as if it were a new phone. This got my mail back and working, everything is working again except I no longer have my old notes. I know they exist in one of my backups located in c:\Documents and Setting\user\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup. I cant just point to one of those older backups because the mail will not work again,,,,, Can I restore just my notes from one of these older backups? ------------------double post merged------------------I also found that I am missing my SMS also. It would be nice to get that back also. I did find that if you have the Apple Dev Tools, you can run the dbextract command on the .mdbackup files to extract your old data and then open them in sqlite3 if needed. The only problem here is that this is all MAC based and I have Windows. Sorry but I dont know anyone that has a MAC either.
