    I like creating a backup of apps that I currently have on my phone. For example, I love Switcharoo but it isn't available any more. Is there some way to extract it from my phone (I have rooted it) in case I ever have to WebOS Doctor it? Thanks.

    This is very easy to do if you're comfortable in a command line (i.e. login to your pre using ssh, then tar up the directory into /media/internal and copy it off.)

    I can run inside command line with no problem.....however, I'm not sure what you mean by "tar up" the directory. Could you give me an example?? Does this create an ipk??

    cd /var/usr/palm/applications
    tar cvzf /media/internal/backupname.tgz (backupfoldername)

    Then copy off bakcupname.tgz (or whatever you call it) from your media partition.

    To restore it, copy the backup file to your media partition, cd /var/usr/palm/applications, tar xvzf /media/internal/backupname.tgz

    is it necessary to 'tar' it? can't you just copy the directory?
    what would be the command to just copy the directory??

    ...also, what if I used the MVapp patch to move the majority of apps to the 'hidden' /media/internals/*?*/ folder? how do I access that folder??
