    Hi everyone - I just had a quick question. I've been playing with a lot of ROMs lately and have noticed a few issues that I think a complete wipe would benefit, but I don't want to lose my text messages. I've used Titanium backup to do a full app backup, but I just wanted to check that the messages would fall under the umbrella of the Message app data? Can anyone tell me exactly what would happen if I did the wipe? Thanks everyone!

    If Titanium does a backup of the data partition then your text messages should be saved there. Otherwise you can do a nandroid backup of your data partition and restore that later if necessary. I know that definitely holds my messages.

    Better question for a more specific backup and restore..

    What file inside /data/ contains the messages? Knowing this, you could wipe the phone of other data to start new, but restore your SMS/MMS messages.

    Not sure about that one. If one of the pros here doesn't know, some of the devs over at Alldroid can probably answer that.
