hi there,

i might have accidentally deleted da VAR folder from ROOT.
Was in the middle of creating a var/root/media/PDF folder.
but each time i click on VAR link. its a short cut that links to Private/var.
The phone now shows that its a locked sim again and all my sms, contacts and all have gone. The phone also is very laggy.
Does anyone know how i can restore it back? im on 1.1.1


Appreciate any help at all. Thank u.

If you can get in via SSH/SCP I would attempt to recreate the structure as much as possible before trying a restore.

For starters var is linked to /private/var but I am not sure if via a hard or symbolic link. Try creating /private/var and see if /var works. If so it's a hard link and you can begin recreating the folders. If not you'll need to create the symlink too.
