I did a search and was unable to find a solution to my current situation. I am moving from a TW rom to an AOSP rom and want to move my SMS/MMS messages over. I did a TiBU of the "Dialer Storage 4.1.1 -I53...LK3 (SMS/MMS/APN)" from the TW rom and tried to restore that to the AOSP rom with no luck. The messaging app FC's on the AOSP rom and I just can't seem to get TiBU to work for restoring my SMS/MMS messages. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Not sure if it's the donate version or not, but TiBU gives you the option to save the message in xml format, which I think the format is more compatible. Not positive it's going to work, but it's an option.

You should have backed up the yellow pieces that say SMS/MMS and Call logs. Your best bet is to go back to the TW rom, back up the yellow pieces, flash the AOSP rom and then restore.

When I flash roms
When I flash different roms, I use an app called SMS Backup & Restore, because it writes an XML file to my sd card (I have to go to preferences and set the backup location to ExtStorage). I haven't had this fail on me yet, and I constantly switch between TW and AOSP roms.

Re: [Q] TW to AOSP TiBU SMS/MMS question
When using titanium back, with the xml sms and call backup options, and restored from touch wiz to aosp, i noticed a problem where the call log would be stuck at the last restored call, and no new calls were being logged. I may have had a similar issue with the sms xml restore but cant remember. I eventually decided to just not restore either and start fresh. If i ever truly need those tw call logs and texts for some reason I have a tw nandroid from that time still.
