    Here's my problem: After having battery troubles with his iPhone, my father decided that he wanted me to restore the phone. (His battery was bad. At 6% with little use on a largely unmodified jailbroken 3.1.2 vs. my over-modified, well-used during the day jailbroken 3.1.2 at 60%.)

    I went through an iTunes backup, then a DFU restore. Here's my problem.

    I can not, for now at least, restore from the iPhone backup. I had to set it up as a new phone for some battery life testing. He needs his contacts back, hopefully by 7AM before he leaves. I have the SQLiteDB from the backup using iPhone Backup Extractor, in addition to the most of the /var/ partition, but I was unable to do much with it, other than converting it into CSV on my Linux machine, importing it in to Gmail, then setting up Contact sync. This -Sort of- Worked. There are many duplicates, as what kind of phone each were "(xxx)xxx-xxxx (Mobile)" was not transferred.

    For now, it is in semi-working order, but I'd like to see it performing perfectly back to the old way it was working.

    Thanks in advance for your help,
