A utility app for noob-dev type dual-boot system on Galaxy S4 LTE variants
DOWNLOAD LATEST VERSION:
>>Dual Boot Backup V2.3a 4/1/14
Multi Boot Backup & Restore Utilities V4.0
Finally I have combined all operations into a single AROMA zip!
-Backup for Secondary, multi-slot-1, multi-slot-2, multi-slot-3
-Restore for Secondary, multi-slot-1, multi-slot-2, multi-slot-3
-Delete backups and delete multiROMs
You can restore a backup from any slot to any other!
For now you MUST:
-Patch a suitable kernel before hand corresponding to the desired slot.
Rename your backup folder to the desired slot.
Then run restore and after flash your patched kernel. Note this will also overwrite whichever secondary kernel you have backed up so you may have to flash and set two kernels.
I will improve this function in the next version
The Title of this App is pretty self explanatory. Being a user and fan of the Dual Boot mod I decided to expand upon it by creating an app which can:
>>> Backup 2ndROM to your choice of Internal Memory OR external SD card
>>> Backup with your choice of Compression or No compression.
>>> Backup by running the app from Primary OR 2ndROM (Restore only from primary ROM)
>>> Restore 2ndROM backup
PLANNED FEATURES IN FUTURE VERSIONS:
- Backup Primary ROM
-Restore EITHER Primary or 2ndROM backups to EITHER/OR Primary or 2ndROM locations... allowing you to:
-clone EITHER ROM to both locations
-swap Primary and 2ndROM positions.
Please refer to the thread for the original Dual Boot mod by @chenxiaolong if you are new to this. This app REQUIRES an understanding of Dual Boot and a working Dual Boot setup
[PATCHER][APP] Dual boot any ROM on all Galaxy S4 variants!
How it works:
I've used Tasker app factory to make an app with a GUI interface which will execute Linux terminal commands creating .tar or .tar.gz backup files in /dual-boot-bk folder which it will create in either your Internal or external memory.
The restore function will restore the tar files to the required folders.
How to use:
#1.Simply install the app on either primary or secondary ROM and run the app.
#2. Tap the backup button and the chose your storage location and compression level.
#3. Wait for the operation to complete!
Your backup will be created in a folder /dual-boot-bk/ in three files:
To delete your backup simply delete this folder /dual-boot-bk/ using a file manager.
If you manually move your backup tar files after creating a backup from one location to another (say to your computer hard drive) just be sure to move them back to your phone in a folder named:
Before you want to do a restore so the app will detect it. (This folder can be in your internal memory or extrenal SD card).
You can only restore when running this app from your PRIMARY ROM.
#1. Make sure you have your three backup .tar files in the expected /dual-boot-bk folder on your Internal Memory or external SD Card.
#2. Tap the restore button.
#3. Wait until the operation has completed and you are done!
#1. You CAN restore a backup onto a Primary ROM which has just been clean installed and DOESN'T yet have the necessary dual-boot folders... My app will create them if necessary.
#2. The secondary kernel will be backed up and restored BUT you may not have set your primary ROM kernel using 'dual boot switcher' app my app should detect if this file doesn't exit and warn you to do this.
