Gearloose Backup Manager
Enigma Strikes Again .!!!
With some research,common sense and help from Kraka23 ,I figured a backup method which works like a nandroid .
Instead of using a recovery ,I made clever use of scripts ,odin and SOC !!
The new Gearloose Backup manager backs up the data and system partitions and at the end you receive a Odin flashable tar
Which entirely backs up and restores the system state !!!!
Yes everything.Saved games ,app changes, settings, saved apps ,wallpapers, saved state ,rabid turtles ,naked bunnies ,pingus ,.
EVERYTHING CAN BE BACKED UP AND RESTORED
It’s a bit slow and time consuming .(5-7 minutes for dump/pull and 5 minutes for flash)
The file will be saved on PC .
Before I begin Let me tell you the requirements :
- Odin 4.34
- SuperOneClick Root (Yes even if you have rooted phone)
- SD card with 1GB free space
- Supreme guts
- Gearloose Backup manager
- 1 GB free space on the hard disk partition
- Galaxy 551 and USB cable
- Microsoft Windows
Connect the phone with USB cable to Computer
Now click on Shell Root
Finish the works
ensure that backup.bat and backup folder are present
There are two options
- backup DATA : which backs up your data partition
- backup DATA and SYSTEM :backs up both system and data partitions
After choosing the desired option .
Enter your desired tar name like PDA,ABC,TRY,NOOB,
And just keep on clicking Enter when asked
at end of 5-7 minutes depending on SD card speed ,you will get a odin flashable tar image in backup folder.
When you want to restore your data .
Flash with the odin file.
the backup data image is 170 MB
and with data+ system is 350 MB
If you dont believe this i have enclosed a blank PDA file which wipes the data .You can restore your data backup after that to check it.
Thanks to kraka23 for the SOC shell root suggestion which removed a bug.
