    Stickynote info lost after factory reset

    Hey, all! I just reset my phone after having some difficulty, luckily, I backed everything up to my computer. Is there any way to even read the text of the sticky notes that were there before I reset if I can find it on my computer? Where are the sticky notes cached, and why is it so difficult to find? I really hope I get it back, it has a lot of details concerning my next date night with my gf, so I really hope to get an answer.

    Cheers!

    Am I to believe that no one really knows the answer to this one? Someone has to.

    All of your application data is stored in the data/data file.

    The data folder is on the root of the phone so unless you backed that up as well, you might be out of luck. Did you have this phone rooted?

    Oh crap, I may have not done that. I only backed up everything that I could see from my computer side, so I hadn't had access to the root directory. The phone was unfortunately not rooted, but is there any way that I could still get it back?

    If you did a factory reset, no. Sorry for the bad news! For future reference, this issue is avoidable with a rooted phone and a wonderful app called Titanium Backup. It can backup and save not only all of the apps your phone has (downloaded and stock), but their data as well and keeps it on the sd card.

    It's just that we didn't want to break the news to you.
    Do you like uninstallable bloatware?
    It takes about 5 minutes to complain and it's kinda fun. Let's not be complacent!
    Contact Verizon (anonymous w/ fake name if you like)
    Chat/Email/Call Motorola (anonymous if you like)
