PreCentral: ZIP your Save/Restore backup (homebrew)

Recommended Posts

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 there,
       
      So VLC (via DLNA) does not see LG TV webOS as renderer option.
      Even Windows 7 (via Explorer / Windows Media Player) sees it.
       
      What's special about LG TV webOS DLNA implementation that VLC does not see it?
       
      Thanks,
       
      PS: Some other related posts on this.

      Merhaba arkadaşlar,
      55LB670V-ZA smart Tv mevcut, Tv açılışta LG logosu bekleme bekleme süresi uzadı. Bazen takılı da kalıyor, TV'yi kapatıp açınca düzeliyor. Bazı formlarda Yazılım güncellemesi yapılması gerekli olduğu belirtilmiş, LG nin kendi işletim ve TV de olan son yazılımı 05.05.70 mevcut webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley) mevcut. Yeni firmware ve webOS sürüm nereden bulabilir ve yükleyebilirim. Yardımcı olursanız çok sevinirim.
      Teşekkürler
      Türkiye / İstanbul

      Hello friends,
      55LB670V-ZA smart TV is available, the waiting time on the LG logo screen at the TV startup has been extended. Sometimes it gets stuck, it gets better when the TV is turned off and on. In some forms, it has been stated that it is necessary to update the software, LG's own page and the latest software 05.05.70 available on the TV is webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley). Where can I find and install the new firmware and webOS version. I would be glad if you help.
      Thank you
      Turkey, Istanbul

      I have an LG-43UN73006LC purchased in the UK - but it does not have a My5 app for watching Channel 5 related programmes  in catch up.
      Channel 5 is one of the main 5 programme channels here in the UK - so why no support from LG?
      How can they call this a Smart TV without support for the basic UK Channels?
      Even my ancient Humax box had My5 app

      It is not understood why this functionality disappeared in WebOS 5 ...
      I have an Oled CX and I don't have this option.
      Why?
