    I don't think any of us know a safe way of doing this. What is needed is someone how knows what is needed to do this and will code it in. I personally know little to nothing about how the application interacts with the database. We already know that overwriting the database causes issue(s) so this means that records would have to be inserted into the database. But isn't as simple as that I don't think.

My friends names are always different on each source, for example with my gmail someone name would be Jane Smith, with Facebook it will be Jame S and with MSN the same person would be Super Sexy Jane, everytime I doctor my Pre I will have to manually merge my contacts, everyone say that Palm Profile should auto merge my contacts however it does not.
    Can this app restore merge contacts?
    As Rod said, there is no systematic way to do this. However, I have been working on something using some extracts from the PalmDatabase.db3 file to at least IDENTIFY where you have merged contacts, so when you Doctor your phone, you can at least know where to put back that merge.

    I will be trying to post something in few days on this and will be sure to let everyone know how to do it... I may make it an official front page Tip of the Day, instead, but I first need to write it up. stay tuned

    Hello Everyone,

    I saw it was touched upon a while back but haven't seen any news on it.

    I ran save/restore to save my messages to my computer ( I understand that it cannot be restored and I am ok with that.)

    Once I saved the info to my computer, the folder is empty. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    What is happening and what do I need to do to fix it? btw, zip and unzip are installed just fine. Are there any incompatibilites with other patches/apps?

    Bump ... c'mon guys, someone must have an answer for this!

    When you did the save, did you make sure that is said it successfully backed up your messages (and moved the switch from YES to NO)? sometimes it may say "database is locked" and can not make a copy. otherwise, it should be a zip file in your saverestore/com.palm.app.messaging folder

  9. #669  
    Got a couple new game scripts here: Blades of Fury by Gameloft and Guitar Hero 5 Mobile by Glu. I've emailed them to Adam as well.

    EDIT: The Guitar Hero 5 script is missing a file that it should be backing up. Please don't use this one; I'm posting an updated script later in the thread.

    I spoke to the dev of mode switcher and the way it saves is likely to change in the near future, so I think we will re-look at it when that happens. There are a couple of posts a few pages back on this one.

    So who thinks Save/Restore should go to 1.0.0 when we have 200 applications supported?

    6 to go ...

    Yup this is the best thing to do. I had brought it up previously which I believe was when you had looked into it.

    I think this is a good idea. Seems it has gone through a good deal of testing and this may spur even more users to get involved in many more apps being added.

    Here are the scripts for
    Code Cabinet
    Simple Shop
    WordRacer
    Tuck Tuck
    FeedReader
    iCopter
    MyLists
    SpaceAlarm
    Ideal Weight
    Touch Connect

    I think most of the free apps in the catalogue that have saved data, are now in Save/Restore.
    I am going to take a look at Cronk, GW-Series and Mydata Bank again. I will also recheck mode switcher when it gets updated to 1.0

    Sounds good Rod. Just wondering if you had a chance to look at this issue?

    Yes.

    Replace srf.app.databases with http://git.webos-internals.org/?p=ap....app.databases

    Please test that on a wide range of applications that use databases, especially any that have multiple databases.

    So, when I first tried to create a script with the Filename (and App ID) com.palm.mobitv.app.sprinttv, it shows up as an installed app to run the save, but i get an error "com.palm.mobitv.app.sprinttv not installed" when trying to save it

    I tried to manually change the APPID="com.mobitv.app.sprinttv", while still keeping a filename of "com.palm.mobitv.app.sprinttv". Using the command line, i can now take a save, but it won't show up in save/restore for me to do it there. When I go to Supported Apps, it shows SprintTV with an ID of "com.mobitv.app.sprinttv", but that doesn't match the Installed App of "com.palm.mobitv.app.sprinttv".

    any ideas how I can get this to work so that it shows up within save/restore as a save option?

    Here is the "final" version of the script that I tried:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    APPID="com.mobitv.app.sprinttv"
    APPNAME="Sprint TV"
    APPDIR="/usr/palm/applications/$APPID"
    source `dirname $0`/srf.app.info
    source `dirname $0`/srf.app.databases
    exit 0
    Try changing APPID between srf.app.info and srf.app.databases ...

    The latest change to srf.app.databases will need some exhaustive testing to make sure it doesn't break anything.

    Apologise for my noobness but here it goes.

    If I copy the code you pasted to a notepad and rename srf.app.database. Will I need to run fromdos on this as I'm using windows?


    Then from commandline I need to type (Probably make a copy first)
    rm /var/svc/org.webosinternals.saverestore/svc.app.databases
    I will then need to send the new copy to
    /var/svc/org.webosinternals.saverestore/svc.app.databases
    And then I can test? Any steps I am missing?

    How are you installing? You should install using Preware.
    What device have you got and what version of webOS are you running?
