TaBackup & EasyKernel Backup and Restore
Since we have a lot of users here with no real means of doing automated proper backups of their tabs outside of ClockworkMod, or manual backups using RotoBackup, I've decided to release my implementation of a backup routine to XDA.
It's based upon RotoBackup and thus requires full SU access on your Tab.
It also requires Heimdall and ADB to be working if you wish to restore a backup fully.
The routine currently only supports RFS filesystems, EXT4 support may be added later!
I have tested this as much as I can, and I do hope that it works for everyone who tries it.
It is windows only, however if someone wishes to redo the script as a shell script feel free!
Down to the attachments.
- TaBackup.cmd : Full tab backup and restore script
- KernelBackup.cmd : Kernel backup and restore script
- WORKING Heimdall 1.1.1 which is required if you wish to RESTORE
- WORKING USB drivers for DOWNLOAD MODE, required for Heimdall
Both freely available from https://github.com/Benjamin-Dobell/Heimdall
Extract the zip to a directory, preferred directories are;
C:\GalaxyTab\Backups for TaBackup.cmd
C:\GalaxyTab\KernelBackup for KernelBackup.cmd
You _can_ change these defaults by editing the script and changing line 8
You need ADB WORKING
, either from the same directory as TaBackup, or from your system PATH
Due to the hasty modification of TaBackup last night to create KernelBackup, there is legacy code floating around which requires heimdall.exe to be present in the same directory as the backups... I may change this at a later date.
It IS possible to have both backup locations the same, e.g. C:\TaBackup
with both scripts in that directory, with Heimdall. You just have to remember which backup directory is just a kernel backup only.
Good luck, and happy hunting!
