Welcome to Multiboot backup & Restore



This is a multi-function utility app with the following features:

•BACKUP your existing multi Rom to your internal or external memory using an accelerated multi-core GZIP binary PIGZ.

•RESTORE a previously made backup to your multi ROM slot

•DELETE a Multi-ROM

•DELETE a Multi-ROM DATA only (factory reset)

• DISPLAY detailed info of your Multi-boot setup AND backups

•RE-PATCH a zip already patched with the patcher snapshot app to a specific ROM slot. Allowing Note4 recoveries to flash without freezing. This uses a ZIP binary which doesn't need to unzip and process everything inside. Making a copy of your zip will take time tho.

• Switch ROMS and reboot within the app


Things not working (yet)

•ONLY FOR DUAL Sorry since you can't fit a multi ROM in the NOTE 4s tiny cache partition I can't test this function. I have an S4 but it's in repair. Once I have it functional I will add multi support.

•RE-PATCHER ISSUES Since Chen updates the info.prop for regularly I am going to fine a way to edit the file as it is without needing to constantly update along with patcher snapshot.


FAQ

Please be aware this early release does not have much in the way of tutorials and limited safety checks be sure you make TWRP backups in case something goes wrong.

Patcher app Snapshot

My app is only a complain companion to this amazing piece of work! thanks to Chenxian for making this all possible.

First app run will install a custom busybox and binary folder which will NOT interfere with any other system functions



Once installed you should see this message



The main screen shows you active multi boot information tapping the button above will toggle between ROM and backup info




You can toggle the storage path too and choose your external microSD or internal memory to make backups



Tap on the ROM slot you want to access. This brings up the operations menu which has real time info of backup/restore progress



You can cancel this operation or force close the app from the notification bar



You can select a patched file generated by patcher snapshot app and re-patch for a specific ROM slot.

Note 4 users must do this since AROMA won't work from recovery yet and the only other option is to use patcher snapshot app to make your install.

If your primary ROM fails to boot having a re-patched zip to flash from recovery is essential




My basic file manager allows you to select your file by long-presing. Then you select a slot and a re-patched zip will be created in the same folder as the original





You can also switch ROMs and reboot into it from within my app!

It is a stand alone app that will need to be installed once and can be quickly accessed later from your launcher independently as well as accessed within this app.




Enjoy! And please give feedback to help improve this app.

First Trial Run
@rlorange, I ran this (48) on my SPH-L720 (Qualcomm Variant), first on CM-12.1 , AntaresOne & Alucard24 then on TW 5.0 Kushan02. Both recognized all of my slots dual, slot-1, 2, both did a backup to my external sd. I ran it on TW 5.0 last so did the restore from there, everything appeared to work but after waiting a while had to flash kernel then restored backup booted. Here are a few screenshots from CM-12 & TW 5.0.

Only Dual is supported atm sorry. Hang in there my S4 should be fixed soon so I can get multi working...

I'm glad they are being recognised at least
