## FAQ
### How can I add contacts?
Adding contacts isn't yet supported. Instead, you have to copy
the database and keys from a Briar Android installation. The most
convenient way to do so is by using
Note that your smartphone needs to be rooted for this.
1. Start _briar-gtk_ and register a dummy account. This will create
the needed directory structure at _~/.briar/_. Close the program afterwards.
2. Enable _adb_ on your smartphone and give it root permissions.
3. Connect via _adb_ and gain root permissions using `adb root`.
4. Copy all important files using `adb pull`:
5. Replace the respecting files in _~/.briar/db_ and _~/.briar/key_.
