OK it looks like I goofed and didn't backup the right messaging app in titanium...

However, before I decided to install a my new ROM I took a image backup in CWM and I'm guessing the messages got backed up too. I would reload the backed up image that CWM did but I'm getting this pesky MD5 mismatch nonsense.

So rather than faff with that, is there a way I can extract the messages / sms history from the image and restore it whilst in my new ROM environment?

Thanks...!

you can use root explorer to extract the tar file for the /data backup. should be on your sdcard under the clockworkmod folder.
then you can use root explorer or an sqlite reader and navigate to /data/data in your extracted folder, and find the messaging app folder. then use the sqlite reader to read one of the .db files. sooner or later one of those .db files will have you messages in it. I dont think you can restore this(you can try to copy the .db and put it in the /data/data for your current messaging app) but you can at least read it.

if it extracts to an img you will have to
Code:
mkdir datafolder
busybox -o loop data.img datafolder
then navigate through that datafolder with the instructions above.
