Restoring messages after reset
I flashed 2.9nv by doing a reset/wipe => pushing Stock EB01 Engineering build => pushing Stock EB01-root-CWM => then flashing SC 2.9.
Everything is great and clock lag and poor battery life are now fixed. But as I've been going through my phone I noticed that I had no messages (which I would expect given the reset/wipe). So I went into TiBU and restored data only for the Messaging app. I still didn't have my messages. Now I'm bummed I did this restore since I was trying to avoid any restores from TiBU's.
So I reinstalled an application that I had used when backing up to install 2.9 called SMS Backup & Restore and used that to restore my messages.
How are others restoring messages after a reset/data wipe?
