iBlacklist Recovery to new iPhone

iBlacklist has a backup/recovery function that stores your backup in a location that can sync with iTunes in case you ever need it later. 

My dilemma, was that i was switched phones and did not want to 1) recover the entire phone and 2) did not want to lose all the data and settings for iBlacklist.  So I had a look at the system to see if I could find the iBlacklist backup and recover to my new iPhone.  And after a quick search found the files I was looking for. 

Below is a guide to extract the data from the old iPhone and import into the new iPhone so you have everything exactly how it was in the old iPhone. 

Requirements: 
  • Jailbroken iPhones
  • OpenSSH on both old and new Jailbroken iPhones
  • iBlacklist Cracked (you need the cracked version to generate a key as previously bought versions cannot be used if you purchased over a year ago)

Backup Location: 
  • /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/iBlacklist/Images/ - This is the location of MMS images sent to your phone
  • /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/iBlacklist/iBlacklist.sqlitedb - This is the backup DB

Steps to recover your  iBlacklist:  
  1. I would start by pulling the SIM card to ensure you do not lose any Calls/Messages that were received during this procedure. 
  2. Get the IP Address from your iPhones:  Settings => Wi-Fi => Click on Blue arrow on your Wi-Fi access point => DHCP => IP Address
  3. Backup your database on old iPhone:  
    • Launch iBlacklist
    • On main menu select Database Manager
    • Select Backup database file
  4. SSH to your old iPhone:
    • ssh root@[old iPhone IP Address]
    • tar cvf Images.tar /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/iBlacklist/Images
  5. Copy the files from old iPhone:
    • scp root@[old iPhone IP Address]:/private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/iBlacklist/Images.tar .
    • scp iBlacklist.sqlitedb root@[old iPhone IP Address]:/private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/iBlacklist/iBlacklist.sqlitedb .
  6. Copy the files to your new iPhone: 
    • scp Images.tar root@[new iPhone IP Address]:/private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/iBlacklist/Images.tar
    • scp iBlacklist.sqlitedb root@[new iPhone IP Address]:/private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/iBlacklist/iBlacklist.sqlitedb
  7. SSH to your new iPhone:  
    • ssh root@[new iPhone IP Address]
    • tar xvf /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/iBlacklist/Images.tar
  8. Install iBlacklist on new iPhone by going to one of the Cydia repositories providing cracked apps.  (Google is your friend)
  9. Recover your database on new iPhone: 
    • Launch iBlacklist
    • On main menu select Database Manager
    • Select Restore database file
  10. Run iBLKeygen
  11. Done
Once done, you end up with all the settings from your previous phones including all the message/call history including MMS images sent to you.  

Let me know if you need clarification.  And as always, please comment if this procedure was useful for you.

  1. For me, this causes the app to return an invalid key error and the app refuses to work.

  2. Which is weird because the first time I did it, it worked. But I'm on my 3rd phone now, and I cannot seem to make it work.

  3. Somehow got it to work. "Restoring" the database once I put the files in worked, but not all my saved pictures/texts got carried over. For me, just dropping the files in via SSH worked the best, ignoring the "restore" option once completed. For me, the order in which I did everything made all the difference. Registering the app first and then dropping my files over was the problem I believe. Dropping the files in, rebooting, using the keygen, then rebooting again seemed to work.

  4. Just got a 4S and this isn't working...pissing me the f**k off. I don't know if the devs updated the app or something, but I've tried everything I can think of. Any help?

  13. Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
