Fix for • Backup Internal Storage • backup option

Universal TWRP Bind Mount Enabler

It is a well known fact that TWRP Backup does not include Internal Storage
aka /storage/emulated/0
If you ever wonder how to backup your Pictures and Downloads here is a solution

  • device with external MicroSD Card
  • working TWRP image as file
  • ramdisk tool (i recommend AIK)
  • unpack your recovery ramdisk
  • create a folder for bind mount
  • place the shell script /scard0/init in your ramdisk
  • when your busybox is older than v1.29: replace /sbin/busybox in your ramdisk
  • replace the shell script /sbin/ in your ramdisk
  • edit the path in /sbin/
  • set permissions executable
  • make a new entry in /etc/recovery.fstab
/sdcard0  ext4  /sdcard  flags=bind;display="Internal Storage";backup=1
