    Hi pals,

    I recently did a factory reset in my Galaxy S2. I had taken a back up (to be exact 29/12/2013 15:35) just before i did the reset. Now when i tried to restore the same backup just after the factory reset, messages upto Sep 17th only getting restored. I really really miss so many important messages. When i tried to restore messages again it restores 0Bytes and nothing happens.

    I had done a rooting in my device and have the root access.

    Any help would be greatly appreciable. Am a noob when it comes to android. Am not familiar with many technical terms in android.

    Really desperate coz of what happened. Expect some support here.

    Thanks in advance.

    I am afraid that Kies is at best, "flakey", in most cases. A Factory Reset will have wiped all your stored SMS/MMS from the phone.

    Hopefully, as you are rooted, you immediately made a nandroid and a Titanium Backup, as per #2.5 of the Rooting Galaxy S2 - Dummies Guide...

    You could use either the TB or nandroid backup to restore your SMS. See the links in the guide for more information.
