Default Add joint to existing skins

Hi all merry xmas,
Can anyone tell me how you can add a new joint to an already skinned character?
I have forgotten to put the jaw in but have skinned all the weights taking hours. I then exported the weights added the new joint then imported the weights again but it doesnt include the new jaw joint!

cheers all
It is by my will alone I set my mind in motion

Believe your out of luck. You can not do that unless you did an incremental save. If you did ** & should at all times ** all you would do is go back to a point in your saves & pick up a previous scene from there.
