I used TB for SMS Backup but I was looking for something that would merge backups, the only thing I found that would do that is Nandroid Manager but it can't seem to find the data in the CWM backup. I will continue to look for another solution that can merge data from sms backups.
I think what I will have to do is
1) make a current CWM backup,
2) restore a CWM backup that I want to get messages from,
3) create an xml that stores the current SMS data (in the older backup)
4) then restore the latest backup,
5) make an SMS backup then merge the 2 and restore all...
Haha I think I almost lost myself on that one.
HUGE thanks to Stedman, now I can actually restore the original backups I made. It's all possible now!
I was able to restore sms data from a CWM Backup using Nandroid Manager from the market available HERE
. The free version did it. Its very simple, you select the backup you want to use, then swipe right and you will see restore SMS data. You then have the option to merge with current data. I did it with 3 different backups and all my text messages were there, it was awesome.
Anyway, that's how I was able to make it through restoring my text messages without restoring and writing over everything else.
This is the first time posting how I fixed something so if I am supposed to give thanks somebody please let me know.
BTW, I figured this out on my own.
It was dumb dumb user error... The app did what it was supposed to but I didn't have busybox installed. After installation it sped through it.
