You actually need to backup p4, p8, p12, p13, and p14 (/dev/sdc4, /dev/sdc8, /dev/sdc12, /dev/sdc13, /dev/sdc14 to be able to do a restore including tokens, bootie and lvm partition information.

for restore the command would be similar to
dd if=/host/temp/dev_bu.bin of=/dev/sdc bs=512
ONLY USE THIS TO BACKUP AND RESTORE FROM/TO THE ORIGINAL SOURCE DEVICE
Don't use this to restore a backup made on one device to a different device. You will overwrite the tokens including the stored serial number with the Tokens from the original source device and that will cause you grief when trying to add the devices to Palm/HP profiles.
