    I have just upgraded my iPhone 1.1.4 to 2.0 and jailbroke this using the following guide:-

    Step-by-Step Guide to Pwn first generation iPhone running firmware 2.0 using Windows - iPhone Hacks

    I did a backup of my phone in iTunes, however when I try to restore it to get me notes back I get an error.

    Luckily I took a copy of the notes.db file from the following location


    However when I copy it back there I don't see any notes at all. Am I missing something?

    I did do search on the internet and found a few suggestions saying it goes here:-


    but this directory didn't exist on my old firmware nor does it exist there on the new 2.0.

    Any ideas?

    I just got this to work yesterday. What I did was to create a new note on the iPhone. Then I checked what permissions were set at. I don't recall what the value was just make a note of what it is. Then ssh your notes.db file overwriting the existing file. Check permissions on the file and chance if necessary to what the value was for the original notesDb hole that you checked earlier. Reboot your phone. Open up notes and press the menu to return tonktes list or press + to adnewnote the return to notes list. I forget exactly wahat I did here but all of a sudden my notes popped up
    Notes.db is in /mobile/Library/Notes
