    I did a minor screw up and did a full wipe on my Redux rom (not unusual for me - a bit of a "neat freak"). Full back up of system apps and data using Titanium but.. Forgot to back up my messages. Not a huge issue but still annoying nonetheless.
    Is there anything on my full Titanium back up which would have encapsulated my messages? Its a long shot but worth throwing out there!

    Cheers all

    Not sure, but if there isn't just backup your current rom, restore your old, backup the messages, restore the new rom then messages.
    Hassle? yes, but easy to do.
    I know that Titainium backup pro can restore stuff from a CWM backup, but not sure about messages.

    Get SMS backup+ from the market. It will backup your texts to your gmail account automatically .

    I don't think titanium back up restores messages. i use titanium pro to restore my apps when changing roms but i can't restore messages with it.

    i use sms backup from the market to restore my messages.

    The problem was I didn't do a Nandroid/SMS backup. I usually do SMS backup when wiping up phone then I can start from fresh and have my SMS.

    Ah well. I'll live.

    you can but usually if you restore message and apn storage it causes force closes.
    basically no

    As Rasta say it usually doesn't work if you restore on a different ROM. But there's a lot of Redux in dGB, so you never know, it might work (e.g. I've flashed Redux2 over dGB without a wipe and it normally works). So it might be worth a try, but I'd take a nandroid first in case it fails badly.

    redux isnt messaging 2.3.5 so it will definitely fail

    Another vote for SMS Backup+ saved me many times. Bonus is being able to search for SMSs in Gmail.
