I've just flashed a custom ROM (HarshJelly 5.1 + CoCore 9.8) and Kies does not recognize my phone anymore.

I have the backup files of contacts, messages, calendar settings, etc. saved in my SD card.

How can I restore those settings without Kies?

Thank you

I think Kies is not working with custom ROMs. So 99% you can't.

Thank you.

Is there a way to open the backup files with some other app/software?

You can try with this if it still works.

But I think this option is better, make all your contacts google contacts, calendar should be connected to google by itself and for sms you have sms backup and restore app in Play store.

Thank you, but that software cannot read the backup files generated by Samsung Kies (GT-I9070_20140420120712 folder), it only reads its own backup files. This is also true for SnapPea software.
These are the files that Kies generated:

Code:
D:\Installers\Android\GT-I9070_20140420120712\
         DIR	CALL\
         DIR	CONFIGURATION\

         DIR	MESSAGE\
         DIR	NETWORK\
        4162	backupHistoryInfo.xml
      485248	Contacts.spb
       27200	Memo.ssn

any idea of how to open them and restore them in my phone?

Thank you

I do not think that you can. Maybe go back to stock, restore and after that use some other methods to backup what you want. For most of the things you have apps on Play store.
