Below are the commands that T/C user Herrie posted WebOS 2.2.3 is already there for Veer here so that someone with a 2.2.4 Veer could make a backup of the Veer OS. Unfortunately since then, that backup found its way onto the internet, and now lots of Veer owners have updated their phones manually, and are enjoying improved functionality and SMS sharing with their Touchpads :-) Not sure if this helps any Pre2 users?
* Install java if you don't have it
* Install the novacom driver, using Jason's Universal novacom installer (it will ask you to download a webos doctor file, you could select the 2.1.1 wr for veer).
git clone git://git.webos-internals.org/tools/meta-doctor.git
when it gives "done", type:
cd meta-doctor (PRESS ENTER)
mkdir downloads (PRESS ENTER)
Get this file, it's a webos doctor for a no-brand Veer (wr), it should work for this as we only need one file to boot the Veer, save it in \home\yourusername\meta-doctor\downloads, rename it to webosdoctorp160unawr-2.1.1.jar
Plug in your Veer (charge mode) and type:
make DEVICE=veer CARRIER=wr memboot backup (PRESS ENTER)
You will get the uncompressing messages, then your Veer will reboot to enter a recovery mode, then you should get some unmounting messages, followed by Cloning messages, and at last some mounting messages. After that your Pixi should reboot again
This should be more than enough.
There will be a directory inside the clones directory, there's the place where the backup will be.
