I have been trying to backup preload to my external sd card by modifying /sdcard/MyBackups/MyBakDevice.txt ( see screenshot)



But the backup is stil made on the internal and after every attempt the content of MyBakDevice.txt is set back to the default /sdcard
I'm I doing something wrong here

EDIT: Tried 3 times, same result every time.

Backup to external sd card not possible currently, so I'm looking into getting this working properly. For now, ignore any information relating to MyBakDevice.txt. All backup will go to internal sd card only for the time being.

AW: [CWM UTIL] GS2PreloadBackup/Restore scripts for Samsung JB (22/02/2013)
This is awesome, thanks for your work!!!!!
May I ask something? (if not, ignore me)
Is it possible to not backup the full /preload partition but only the /preload/symlink part of it? I ask because it would be very helpful with this : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=38209559
So, a user could backup /preload/symlink/... Then install a 2nd Rom, that will probably format /preload and just restore it easily with your File. This might be a very big step for Dual boot as it makes so many things easier!
Anyways, thank you very much for your efforts!!!

As far as I'm aware, apart from the generic lost+found folder linux creates under each partition (which 99% of the time will be empty) the only contents of the /preload partition IS the symlink folder.

Thanks!
But in my /preload there is the /symlink part of my Sammy Rom (shorted to about 80mb) and the /system of 2nd Rom (MCM's 10.1)
The created Backup with your zip is about 390mb big so I figured that there has to be more than just the symlink stuff.
This could be solved, of course by a clean install of first Rom (Sammy), backup with your file, install 2nd Rom and then restore /preload.
But it would be easier if only /preload/symlink would be backed up and later restored.
But, important, I don't want to bug you, it's awesome as it is, seriously!!
