Default On board data usage

Is it possible to somehow go in and adjust the on board data usage? Being that I have a rooted Gnex and once you wipe data for flashing a ROM, the usage gets reset. Didn't know if you could go into the actual system files and edit whatever keeps count be it in an xml or smali or whatever.

I don't know where that data is stored, but I would think that if you could locate it, you could copy the file, export it, then copy it back to the phone after the reset. I have no idea how you'd locate the specific file that logs data usage though. Maybe try posting on XDA and see if anyone can identify the specific files.

Well i found where the files are stored and I've tried every program i have available to open them to no avail. Tit backup has a data backup function which will serve me better on the next cycle but id still like to figure a way to manually edit the actual usage number to keep it on par with the carriers numbers.

Thanks for your input

The file doesn't have an extension so I figured it's an executable through the system somehow. It's located in data/system and it's the netstats folder. That's the folder that gets backed up in titanium backup when you backup your data usage stats so I assume that's it.

You can delete the netstats folder and start completely fresh at 0 but still no clue on how I could edit them. The netpolicy.xml keeps the ongoing data you enter for your monthly cap and what not and I was hoping it was in there being that the data usage is never ending but it's not.
