I have been cracking my head against the desk trying to get this working; and whenever I get close it ends up being close enough to smell but not to taste
Anyhow, basically I want to be able to get SMS messages into OF in real-time. The problem is that I cannot get Gnokkii to work on the iPhone and some other phones haven’t worked too well for me either. I ended up jailbreaking an iPhone and being able to SSH into it directly to read a sms.db file which got me thinking … wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to using the extremely handy ofxSQLite ( Roxlu ) addon to read that .db file directly. Poll it at some interval and get new messages?
THE SOLUTION - ALMOST:
So to get a file path to the sms.db on the iPhone I mounted it using both PhoneDisk ( http://www.macroplant.com/phonedisk/ ) and through ExpanDrive ( http://www.expandrive.com/mac ) and can directly query the sms.db with either!
The problem is that the sms.db doesn’t update when new messages are sent. If I stop and rerun the OF program it will ( with Expandrive. Phone disk requires an unmount then remount ) but while running it will not ( so close! ).
I think I am hitting the ceiling of my knowledge of these things and am hoping someone more knowing could possibly help me out here. Though using a web service such as Notify Pro and notify.io does work by reading emails with the email addon it is way too unreliable. As this will be for a large public projection I would rather hook up directly to a phone instead of using a bunch of middlecompys.
Thanks in advance! ( I hope )
