SMS not backed up.
I did a downgrade from 4.3 to 4.1. To make the transition smoother, I planned to wipe data, so I backed up with PCC. After the 4.1 downgrade, I tried to restore, but it didn't restore my SMS. After googling, I gathered that that feature doesn't actually do anything. I extracted the mmssms.db using this tool:https://github.com/nelenkov/android-backup-extractor
This extract only contain the last text sent/received with the recipient. Are the texts stored elsewhere on the phone?
p.s. my db is 1mb in size and I've had the phone since October and not done a data wipe until yesterday. I'm thinking that this is not big enough for the amount of texts I send. I send on average at least 3 SMS per day. On some days, 30 in a single day. Most of my texts are roughly 300 characters.

Instead of typing thanks, why not press thanks if I helped you?
