Either use iFunbox or iFile. Go to the folder or file, and change the permission to 777.

The hard way is to use terminal navigating to the file/folder and chmod 777 FILENAME/FOLDER.

You can also perform a manual backup of the file "sms.db" yourself from this directory "/User/Library/SMS/". Backup the Drafts folder if there is a need too.

There're also other files in other directories you may want to look into. A little time spent for searching and reading helps.

Reboot, open up SMS app and all was restored.
YOU ARE MY GOD, thanks, with your help I managed to retrieve my messages.

Hi folks,

I'd really like to do this but the 'backup' files has been taken down from all the hosting sites. Any chance someone could share a new link please?

Not sure why I've never seen this thread before. Would definately like another way of backing up my contacts. I've had times where when I try and restore a backup I made with iTunes it didn't work.

Both links in the thread are dead tho. Could someone re-up it?
