PreCentral: Setup Save/Restore for automatic backups (homebrew)


Recommended Posts

Save Restore preferencesThe WebOS Internals' homebrew app 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.  When the app was initially released, you were required to manually run the "save" process. However, an auto-save option was added in quite some time ago to perform this function for you on a regular basis, without any intervention on your part (well, some manual intervention was still required. See below)

To set up Save/Restore auto save:

  1. Open Save/Restore
  2. Wait for the app to load up all the scripts and when once done, from the top-left to bring down the Application dropdown menu and select "Preferences"
  3. If not already set, toggle "AUTO SAVE" to on
  4. Select the desired time to perform the backup, and choose "Every N Days" to your desired frequency. Choosing "1" will save every day
  5. to exit (or press the back arrow on the TouchPad)
  6. A dashboard notification will appear with the time of the next backup

The only caveat to this process, as alluded to above, is that the auto save will only work for those items that you already have at least one backup for. In other words, if you haven't saved the data for a given app at least once, it will not be a part of the auto save. Therefore, every so often, it is a good idea to open up Save/Restore, choose "Save Application Data" and manually run a save of all available scripts.

      Hi, I'm curious if anyone else is seeing this annoying new behaviour.
      I have my SKY Q box on HDMI1 and have become accustomed to switching back from Netflix (or any other app for that matter) by having HDMI1 assigned to button "1" using the Quick Access feature.  In the last week though, this feature has stopped working properly. If I am in Netflix and I press the "1" button, nothing happens (as expected). If instead I hold down the "1" button to switch to SKY I get a pop up that says this: "Do you want to add Netflix to [Quick Access 1]?".   If I then hold down the "0" button, the 3x3 grid "EDIT QUICK ACCESS" pop-up appears and I can clearly see my SKY Q/HDMI 1 in the top left grid position (button "1")!!!
      If I then switch via the Home button to HDMI1 and remove HDMI1 from Quick Access (via the  EDIT QUICK ACCESS pop up), I can then re-add it by holding down 1 or from within the pop-up. Now, if I go into Netflix and then hold down 1, my TV does (correctly) switch to HDMI1. Hurrah! If however I turn my TV off and back on, then go to Netflix, then hold down "1", I am back to square one with the question "Do you want to add Netwflix to [Quick Access 1]?"......Grrrr!!!
      I have tried switching the TV off at the wall, leaving for 10 seconds and repowering, which doesn't fix the problem (I don't believe WebOS reboots when you do this). LG appear to have made it a practical impossibility to reboot WebOS via anything other than a factory reset which I don't really want to do as it'll take me too long to get all my settings back to where I have them now. Some blogs suggest that the "User Licence agreement" setting can be changed which forces a reset from within the General tab but I don't see this on my TV (guessing that WebOS interface has changed).
      Anyone have any ideas? 
      Rob.

      Hi, since I think yesterday I have an issue with HBO GO - it just shows unsupported device and that is it. According to their website, WebOS 3.5+ should be supported, I have LG uh6107 and in menu it shows SW version  5.60.15, so I think it should be ok.. does anybody have the same issue?

      When I am trying to play premium content on hotstar, it is showing me the playback error. Please resolve this. In other devices it is working perfectly. I have raised this to hotstar they asked me to raise it to TV manufacturer. Attach is the screenshot of the issue.

      I’d love to stream the upcoming F1 season directly from my LG OLED TV without depending on other devices to source it. When can we expect this app to be featured by LG? Thanks!
