Transfering contacts from one Android smartphone (with smashed screen) to another
So my mother in law used to have an Huawei ideos X3 (U8510) due to an unfortunate event the screen of her smartphone got smashed and due to anther unfortunate event, she wasn't saving her contacts in the cloud, so they were all in the phone. Since her screen is unresponsible to touches, I can't get her contacts into the cloud. I gave her my old Samsung Galaxy S with CyanogenMod.
What I did so far is, root the phone through adk to gain access to all files and databases. So far so good. I extracted the database with the contacts (contacts2.db) and overwrote the contacts2.db from the Galaxy S, which resulted into major force closes when opening the contacts app.
Any other suggestions? She needs her contacts badly.
