Hi guys, recently I flashed a Galaxy S5 Pack for the i9505, and i got stuck into bootloop. So, I wanted to recover my contacts/sms etc.. so I did a Nandroid Backup of the /data partition.
I extracted the data.ext4.tar (after doing the cat of the 4 files .a, .b, .c and .d) and i got the databases from the Phone, the SMS/MMS and other.
I did a wipe data, so I tried to restore the contacts by replacing the files from /data/data/com.android.providers.contacts/databases, and setting the right permissons, but it gave me FC so I did a Wipe Data again. Same with messages.
Any hint?
Please, i need my messages and contacts back, they're too important!
Thanks,

For next time I advise you backup contacts to Google acount
For SMS use SMS backup or Titanium backup
