[Q] Please help recover my Contacts&SMS messages lost in updating Paranoid Android
-I've been using Paranoid Android ever since Nexus 4 was released, the last time I updated it was when they first released the Halo feature (not sure what version that was).
-Today, I tried to update to PA 4.4 RC1. I downloaded the latest version of the Mako rom and the GAPPs files. In CWM, I got the error message saying "no file_contextsset_metadata_recursive" when attempting to flash the rom.
-For some stupid reason, I decided to try "wipe cache partition" and "wipe dalvik cache" and then re-flash the ROM. However, that didn't work and now I cannot even boot back to my old PA version.
-I had to restore back to the unrooted state to be able to even access my phone again. (which does not have my contacts list and all saved SMS messages)
- At this point, I don't care about updating anything, Is there anyway I can just recover my contact list and all my (non-deleted) SMS messages? or are they already lost...
