PreCentral: ZIP your Save/Restore backup (homebrew)

Save Restore ZIP CreationThe WebOS Internals' homebrew app

is great to backup your important application data in case you ever need to webOS Doctor you device, swap it out with a new device, or even transfer data between a phone and TouchPad. When Save/Restore runs, it created individual folders and files for each app it backs up and stores them in the /saverestore folder on the USB drive. However, there are two drawbacks to this type of backup. First, there is no easy way to quickly backup all those files in the cloud using a service like dropbox or box.net. And second it only saves the most recent backups so if you needed to go back more than just a day or two in backups, you can't. One way to combat this is to create a single archive of the entire /saverestore with all its subforlders. 

While you can now use an app like Archive Manager to ZIP up those files, there is also a little easter egg within Save/Restore that will allow you to do just that, which will then make it easy to upload a single file to a cloud storage service. All you need to do is copy the "ZIP creation" script to the Save/Restore script repository and then run the script whenever you want to create the backup archive. The easiest way to accomplish this is to use Internalz Pro, by Jason Robatille, which is available in both Preware or webOS Quick Install. 

  1. Open Internalz Pro
  2. Navigate to /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.webosinternals.saverestore/contrib 
  3. Tap on the "org.webosinternals.saverestore" script and select "Copy". Find "/var/svc/org.webosinternals.saverestore", highlight it and then choose "Select" to copy it.
  4. Now, you can open up the Save/Restore app, wait for the data to load and choose "Save Application Data". Scroll all the way to the bottom and you will find "ZZZ Save Restore Zip Creation". It has the "ZZZ" in the name so this will be the very last script that is run if you "save all"

Once you run that script, a file called saverestore-99999999.zip will be created in your root USB directory (/media/internal/), with the 99999999 being replaced by the current date and timestamp.  Depending on the size of your archive and what apps you have installed, this file can get rather large, so be aware of how many of these files are on our device and clean them up if you no longer need them

Unfortunately, this zip creations script will not run automatically if you have . Luckily there is a work-around for this, but you will need to wait for our next Tip of the Day for those instructions

      Hi everyone,
      I´ve installed Kodi on LG WebOS. I need to delete some backups that by default are stored in the WebOS root system. I guess it can be done through WebOS Dev Manager but I´ll appreciate any help giving me the path to achieve such backup folder.
      Many thanks in advance

      My magic remote and my Roku remote stopped working for turning off power so I performed a factory reset after troubleshooting to get the remote working.  I am now stuck at the 1st screen of the Factory Reset which says "Press the OK Button(wheel) on your remote."  Well... this really stinks because the remote doesn't work!!!  I have tried a USB mouse, a new magic remote, other LG Remotes with no luck.  I have also tried using the button on the bottom of the tv.  And, I contacted support which was just an exercise in redoing everything I had already tried... No Luck!!
      This is a Nano Cell 55NANO81ANA which is basically just a big brick now since I cannot even use any of the inputs.  Does anyone have a trick for getting past this initial screen???
      Thanks for the help.

      From horses and carriages to cars, airplanes, and now drones and hyperloops, innovations in transportation have consistently reshaped human life, making it easier for people to live life on the go. Meanwhile, the rise of OTT platforms has given people the freedom to watch their favorite content at their convenience, anytime and anywhere. However, limitations persisted in terms of screen devices that wouldn’t allow content to be consumed wherever one may desire, until the debut of the LG StanbyME and LG StanbyME Go.
      The StanbyME lineup began with an experimental question posed by a designer at LG’s HE Design Lab: “What if my TV could move to wherever I am, whenever I want to watch it?” This was the moment of curiosity that sparked innovation, transforming and reimagining the TV experience.
      From the outset, the designs of the two Lifestyle Screens had to be different, as the LG HE Design Lab team was given the challenge to conceptualize a screen that could be ‘on the go.’ Deviating from the traditional TV design, the team created a product with no complex components visible on the back, featuring a simple frame and minimalist edge stand to maximize space utilization and deliver flexibility that blends into any composition.

      With the appearance and functionality of a carry bag, the StanbyME Go is purposefully designed to withstand shock, vibration and chemical reactions, providing unparalleled portability and durability. For a heightened experience with better interaction, the display movement intends to closely match the user’s posture.

      Traditionally, portability has not been closely associated with TV products, but LG sought to pioneer versatile lifestyle screens that expand the role of TVs far beyond image broadcasting. The StanbyME and StanbyME Go are companions for everyday life; they can transform into recipe books when cooking in the kitchen, sheet music when playing the piano, and small outdoor movie theaters when camping, reimagining the way users engage with TVs.
      When selecting which TV to purchase, the foremost consideration should be how well it fits into your space. With the ability to easily change their location, the StanbyME and StanbyME Go stand out as exceptional choices to set the ideal mood in any space.

      Unlocking new possibilities for creating unique mood and experiences, the StanbyME and StanbyME Go offer portability that allows users to carry or position them wherever they desire. Enjoy a movie night in your cozy bedroom, soft music on the terrace of your home café, a workout in your home gym or a celebration message in a party room. With unbounded imagination, the possibilities are endless.

      However, why limit your TV experience to the indoors? The StanbyME Go has created new on-the-go entertainment opportunities for outdoor use with its great portability and versatility. The StanbyME Go can serve as a digital campfire for relaxed downtime or transform into a lively board game hub during family road trips. Featuring a turntable skin that enables users to immerse themselves in music and create a relaxing mood on the beach, this all-round lifestyle screen ensures hours of enjoyable entertainment for all.
