Backing up just /home/root

To backup the home folder (all your files personal files in theory).

From the desktop pc run:

ssh root@phone 'tar -cpz /home/root' > moko-home-`date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S`.tar.gz

Where phone is the ip address of your phone (192.168.0.202).

Personally I added an entry to /etc/hosts so the above works for me. I also added the desktop key to /home/root.ssh/authorized_keys on the phone as per the instructions in USB_Networking#SSH_Keys.

If you want to check what is in the backup, run the following, replacing the filename with what was just created.

tar -tzf moko-home-20080802-203108.tar.gz | less

reference

Backing up everything

You will need the Dfu-util to make a backup of your existing image.

As when flashing, you will need to be in U-Boot in the NOR Flash. Log into the NOR uBoot menu and select Set console to USB (for NRF just stay in NOR uBoot menu, do not select or enter anything). Now you will be able to flash, make backups of your Freerunner or query the Freerunner with dfu-util.

NOTE: On a Windows host, omit the "./" or "sudo ./" that precedes the commands listed on this page


THIS WILL TAKE AWHILE. The rootfs will take significantly longer than the kernel.

./dfu-util -a kernel -R -U good-kernel.bin
./dfu-util -a rootfs -R -U good-rootfs.jffs2
./dfu-util -a u-boot_env -R -U good-u-boot_env.bin
./dfu-util -a splash -R -U good-splash.bin
./dfu-util -a u-boot -R -U good-u-boot.bin

Here is what my successful output looked like...

Despite the fact that there was a device status with state=dfuERROR, everything seems to have worked.

on the FreeRunner:

DEVICE_CONFIGURED: 1
Starting DFU Upload of partition 'rootfs'

I could backup the kernel of my GTA02 but trying to use this method to backup the rootfs failed several times....

I have not been able to backup rootfs using this method.

In demsg I get this error

Failed for me as well with (I didn't have patience to do it multiple times)
