is great to 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. Typically, Save/Restore will save files that are tied to specific applications, such as progress in your games, specific stock quotes set up in a finance app, or settings/preferences for apps. However, there are a lot of other miscellanous files that you may find throughout webOS that are not tied to specific apps, but you would still like to save. These can include changes that you have made to the or , the background for the phone dialer, or even the database files that contain some system data (e.g. cookies.db, database.db). While you would never want to restore those database files after a device swap or webOS doctor, it would be nice to restore those personalized image files.

Since this is not your typical Save/Restore function and does involve some additional homebrew knowedge, it's not automatically added to the list of supported applications within the app. But, there a little easter egg within Save/Restore that will allow you to backup or restore these files as needed. 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.deviceinfo" 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 down until you find "Misc OS Backup files" and ensure that it is toggled to "ON"
  5. Once you run that script, you will have all these files backed up to the USB drive on your webOS device. 
  • Be aware that when it comes time to restore these files after a device swap or webOS doctor, you will need to follow the directions above on the new device before you run the restore with Save/Restore in order to add that script to the app on the new device.

If you would like to see what files this script backs up (and have some knowledge of how to read save/restore scripts), you can or you can view it on the .

      Company Has Established a Comprehensive, Ethically-Responsible
      Management System for Its AI-Enabled Home Appliances

      SEOUL, Feb. 15, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) has recently achieved a significant milestone by obtaining the AI Management System (AIMS) certification (ISO/IEC 42001) from the Korean Standards Association (KSA).1 This certification demonstrates LG’s commitment to prioritizing data security and embracing responsible AI management practices throughout the entire lifecycle of its AI-powered home appliances.
      ISO/IEC 42001, a globally recognized standard established jointly by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), sets out the essential requirements for governing and managing AI technologies.2 AIMS certification validates that a company has not only implemented but also maintains and continuously improves an AI Management System, demonstrating a responsible and ethical approach to developing and utilizing AI-based solutions.
      The stringent assessment criteria of ISO/IEC 42001 cover various aspects, including AI policy formulation, risk assessment, risk management, ethical compliance, regulatory responsiveness and transparency in AI management processes.
      The acquisition of AIMS certification acknowledges LG’s ongoing and systematic efforts to ensure rigorous control over potential issues related to its AI products and services, including security, fairness, transparency and accountability. Through this certification, LG aims to enhance customer trust and strengthen its competitiveness.
      Last year, LG distinguished itself as the first home appliance manufacturer to receive Deep Learning AI Verification, awarded by the independent safety science company UL for its washing machine and dryer. Additionally, LG obtained AI Safety Certification from the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH) for the AI functionalities integrated into the LG WashTower.3
      LG actively leverages data- and AI-based research and development initiatives to realize the vision of the ‘Zero Labor Home,’ offering users a refreshingly convenient and relaxing smart home experience facilitated by LG’s advanced, AI-driven home appliances and services.
      “This certification shows that we have established a comprehensive AI management system and are committed to providing our customers with safe, responsible AI-based solutions for a better life,” said Lyu Jae-chul, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.

      link hidden, please login to view, the automotive cybersecurity company acquired by LG in 2021, the CSMS Cockpit platform monitors and maintains vehicle cybersecurity. The sophisticated solution streamlines cyber-assurance and incident response tasks for OEMs, ensuring vehicles remain digitally secure and fully compliant with evolving cybersecurity regulations. An area of growing importance, automotive cybersecurity is set to take center stage in the mobility sector as WP.29 UNECE R155 cybersecurity regulations continue to come into effect. From July 2024, all vehicles produced by OEMs must meet the newly established suite of cybersecurity standards to obtain type approval, which is a prerequisite for selling vehicles in 54 countries, including EU member states, the UK, Japan and South Korea. Supporting OEMs to comply with the coming changes, LG and Cybellum’s CSMS Cockpit is a complete platform that addresses the many challenges of automotive cybersecurity management.
      The CSMS Cockpit platform swiftly identifies security vulnerabilities, proactively monitoring and taking preventive measures to negate potential threats. LG and Cybellum’s solution can thoroughly analyze vehicle components over the course of its lifespan (approximately 20 years), generating and managing a comprehensive database spanning development and real-world usage. Automatically addressing security concerns and tracking response efficacy, the platform enables real-time risk detection and inspection protocols for individual components. The CSMS Cockpit serves as a control center for product security – from monitoring to management – allowing automakers to promptly assess and address any component-related security threats. In addition, it actively evaluates newly-identified threats and their possible impact on manufacturers’ parts, enhancing overall security reliability.
      “The CSMS Cockpit, a product of our collective expertise, will empower automotive OEMs to navigate the complexities of cybersecurity management with unprecedented efficiency and effectiveness,” said Slava Bronfman, CEO of Cybellum. “We are confident that this groundbreaking platform will set a new benchmark for cybersecurity excellence, shaping the future of secure connected vehicles.”
      “LG’s automotive component development experience and Cybellum’s automotive security expertise come together in the CSMS Cockpit, a solution that will help automakers deliver the standard of cybersecurity required both now and in the future,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG Vehicle component Solutions Company. “We recognize the growing importance of auto cybersecurity, and are committed to providing platforms and technologies that support data integrity and vehicle safety in an increasingly digital environment.”
