    Hi,

    I'm about to give in and get into testing out some Homebrew stuff.

    I was trying to be very patient with Palm but there is some really good stuff being developed. Some of which would make my experience so much better.

    Ok, what I am asking for:

    I feel that doing a FULL BACKUP will ensure that if I mess up, I can go back to the original settings, completely!

    I know we can 'backup' to the Palm Profile and we all know that it's not really a full backup.

    I also took someone's tip and started to backup with SyncToy!

    Now the problem, with SyncToy, I'm not backing up the hidden stuff that is there (I assume) when I finally go into developer mode.

    So can SyncToy do a FULL BACKUP when I'm in developer mode?

    If not, what is recommended to do a full backup so that I can revert back to an untouched (virgin) Pre, should I mess up with something.

    Thanks all!

    Rob

    Maybe you could novacom into the pre and tar up the entire / dir
    (minus /media/internal of course) to /media/internal(the usb drive).

    For easier searching the tool is called WebOS Doctor and it's free from Palm's site.

    It'll restore your phone to factory condition.

    I'd be willing to pay for an app that does this, something like Resco Backup for the Treo/Centro.
