They're not "moving". It always has been that case for non-iPhone. They can't do that for iPhone because App Store doesn't allow in-app purchases, so they charge the app on an one-time basis at $0.99. Android and Symbian versions always had the $0.99/year fee, but according to most reports I've heard, "trial" subscriptions always get auto-renewed.

Thanks.
So after many requests and only a manual backup instruction available i created a save&restore-script:

Version 2:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
APPID=`basename $0`
APPNAME="Mojowhatsup"
source `dirname $0`/srf.app.info
SRCDIR="/media/internal/mojowhatsup"
DSTSUB="mojowhatsup"
FILES="*"
source `dirname $0`/srf.app.files
SRCDIR="/media/internal/appdata/com.palm.mojowhatsup"
DSTSUB="com.palm.mojowhatsup"
FILES="* .challenge"
source `dirname $0`/srf.app.files
source `dirname $0`/srf.app.databases
source `dirname $0`/srf.app.cookies
exit 0
It's based on version 1.4.1 which is the one i'm still on (and kicking). But i assume there has nothing changed in 1.5.0 regrading this:

- Found no file in app directory that was altered after login/logout, so i backup nothing from there
- Found in Impostah - App Database one db to be saved
- Found in Impostah - App Cookie Exploration two cookies (prefs/app data) to be saved.
- Downloaded pictures/videos in /media/internal/mojowhatsup are saved too (backup can take longer if this directory is crowded)
--> If this directory is empty you get this error on restore:
Code:
caution: filename not matched: mojowhatup/* /media/internal/saverestore/com.palm.mojowhatsup/20130624T172638+0200/mojowhatsup not found

I tested it with restore on an other device. So you should be able to create a clone installation of your phone MWU on your TouchPad with this (all login credentials, codes, cookies...should be there) even formerly downloaded files open within MWU correctly on the new instance. Read more on it here.

@amoralico please correct me if i forgot something

@all others works with MWU 1.4+:
File is located here: Save/Restore Community Development to use it move the unpacked script to /var/svc/org.webosinternals.saverestore (moving e.g. with Internalz Pro) and start Save&Restore
Hopefully Save&Restore is updated soon so it comes within the download.


[Updated]
Version 2.01 now including profile images/other downloads and .challenge-file (working with 1.5.x - tested until 1.5.6)

Maybe I am looking cross-eyed, but I do not seem to be able to locate how to change the Font familiy in 1.5.0 - only see the size in the Preferences menu. Did a quick search in the thread, but could not locate a reference to an config file to edit for this, as well.

Did I miss anything?

Gizmo, tnx for your efforts in the backup ... !

I did it programmatically. It is not at preferences nor config file.
Replace the /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.palm.mojowhatsup/stylesheets/stylesheet.css file by the attached one.

Note: Rename the file after download by removing the ".txt".

Sorry. I forgot to mention.
All files at /media/internal/appdata/com.palm.mojowhatsup must also be saved. This folder contains profile images and other downloaded files.

The hidden file is not important. It is a temporal file, and for the other dir I've seen some script examples and it seems you can include two different calls to source `dirname $0`/srf.app.files.

The code might look like this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
APPID=`basename $0`
APPNAME="Mojowhatsup"
source `dirname $0`/srf.app.info

SRCDIR="/media/internal/mojowhatsup"
FILES="*"
source `dirname $0`/srf.app.files

SRCDIR="/media/internal/appdata/$APPID"
FILES="*"
source `dirname $0`/srf.app.files


source `dirname $0`/srf.app.databases
source `dirname $0`/srf.app.cookies
exit 0

Sorry, had it running after some minutes, but had to leave till now.

Yeah tried it like your version too at first, but the files have to be put in sub folders in the zip (DSTSUB), cause all would be put in both dirs if no dest given.

Fixed the code in original post:
