    Save/Restore must do things 100% correctly. It's great to have lots of people submitting scripts to cover new apps, but we do need to review them to make sure things are being done in the most robust fashion.

    Thanks for identifying the weird situation for these apps.

    Yea..if there is a way to set APPDB or something like that where the Database App ID is different than the actually AppID, that would be great!

    Script Attached : (Works But only when off a Fresh new install (No old save files in place))

    Save/Restore 1.0.10 should be in the testing feed shortly (can take some time before it shows up). BIG update here

    Update includes:
    - Robustify postinst script.
    - Added french translation support.
    - Added support for saving a single directory using the srf.app.directory script. Sample script to reference is the VisualBoy Advance script
    Applications:
    - Jacksonville, New York Times, TodoTracker (all courtesy of djgardn2)
    - Slide RSS (courtesy of appsotutely), Scratch Word Processor (courtesy of Chakat Silverstreak), Astraware Casino (courtesy of Audemars02),
    - Putki, SuperJump (both courtesy of pcworld),
    - VisualBoy Advance (courtesy of rwhitby),
    - College Football Live, International Soccer Live, UK Football Live, Womens Basketball Live (all courtesy of MoreSolutions)
    - Angry Birds Lite, BFG Maps, BFG Maps Beta, Bluetooth Profiles, Crimson Fields, Frootrees, Lumberjack, Sparkle Lite (all courtesy of StoneRyno)


    This should represent all completed scripts in the fourms that don't use any custom code in the script. With the update the Files script and the new Directory script, you should not need any more special code to get these to work. If you are still having issues, post them in the forum and we will try to troubleshoot with you.

    NOTE 1: Anyone interested in getting access to the testing feed, follow the instructions here: Testing Feeds - WebOS Internals ... Please be sure to add the "-all" testing feed and the feed the relates to your device (pre/pixi/emulator)

    NOTE 2: Don't see an app supported in Save/Restore? Request them here! Remember the bounty system that is referenced on the first post. For any paid applications, the "standard rate" is to offer 2x the value of the App.

    I remember a similar error from some prior scripts, but not sure how to fix...may need to wait for Rod to wake up and take a look. Any chance you can run the script from your command line to get the full output?

    Okay, so from my post right above with the new error message(#1165)

    The Script is in working order. You only get that error message if you are trying to Restore when there are any saves at all already in that folder.

    I tried restoring from a fresh install and it works fine, just to note...

    srf.app.directory probably needs an overwrite flag in the unzip.

    I have added that to the srf.app.directory script - please test.

    Here is the script for Advanced Configuration for System Settings. Obviously it must be used by the command line like the script for ACAL. It does not back up the default settings that are not changed by ACSP, but it does get everything sconix saved in the db. He also may try to include the default settings as well so they can be added to this script.

    Is it OK if I ask if there is a chance these patch backup scripts will be able to be included in the GUI at some point in the future?

    Yes, at the moment we use the list of applications provided by webOS to determine what is installed. We need to enhance that to identify other non-application packages that are installed too.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'm excited by how robust Save/Restore has gotten and having patch data backups available to all users will make it that much moreso.

    I have advanced configuration for app launcher installed (the newer version). I notice that this is a supported application for Save/Restore, however, when I go into "Save Application Data", this is not one of the choices to save. I also don't see it listed in "Installed Applications". How do I "activate" it? or do I need to reinstall advanced configuration for app launcher (and probably lose all the settings)?

    Thanks...

    Hey LikeTreo --

    No way to activate it -- and no need to re-install ACAL. As Tobias Funke mentioned a few posts above -- it is a manual process of running one (long) like in the Terminal app. Install Terminal from Preware if you don't already have it installed.

    See here (post 992 in this message thread) for the instructions for backing up the ACAL settings.

    http://forums.precentral.net/webos-i...ml#post2612486

    Once you do it, you can use S-R app to restore after a visit to the Doc.

    I did that, after laboriously entering the command line (my keyboard is very problematic) in Terminal, I got a page full of output--I assume I entered it correctly.

    But I didn't know I had to doctor (vs a battery pull) after that????

    Thanks...

    Can you elaborate on that? I just ran that script for the first time today as well and I didn't have to DR / pull batery? Not sure what you mean.

    Update -- I think you are referring to my last comment above? --> I just mean that if you were unfortunate enough to have to Doctor your phone, then the "Restore" functionality for ACAL will be listed among all of the other "Saved" preferences & data. No need to run a script in the restore setting -- only to implement a save.

    Yes re:the doctor comment.
    But I think I know why I am confused. In "Saved Application Data" I don't see ACAL. I would expect to see it there so I can update it from the app now, as I could any other supported app. But in "Restore Application Data" I do see that something has been saved for ACAL. Does this mean every time I want to update it, I have to run the terminal command?

    Yes, that is exactly what it means.

    As Rod posted above, S/R does not currently have a method to see which patches you have installed, so the data can only be backed up manually.

    My solution was to make simple executable files in /var/home/root called "sr-acal" and "sr-acsp" that contain the appropriate command. Then I just open Terminal and type sr-acal or sr-acsp and it runs the command.

    Thanks for explaining. What you say above sounds like a great idea. Since I haven't edited anything unix-like in many years (using vi), I assume I can take the command like in post 992, put it into a file using notepad on my PC (does it need a special extension?), and then use WOSQI to put into the /var/home/root directory as you indicate? Will that work?

    Thanks again...
  17. #1177  
    It doesn't need a special extension (mine don't have any), but you will need to do "chmod +x sr-acal" in the terminal to make the file executable.

    I about 30 seconds, i just used Internalz to create and edit the new sr-acal file.... copied the command line code from the forum post in the browser and pasted it into the file in internalz. Saved. Moved the file to /var/home/root/ and ran the chmod +x code from terminal.

    I'm now set up to back up ACAL when needed without remembering (or mistyping) that long line of code. Thanks TF.

    You know that you can use Internalz to set Linux Permissions? Just tap on the file, tap Info and there is a Linux permissions button (as long as the file is NOT in the /media/internal directory

    any chance you can post those files on the site...I can add them to the /contrib directory of the save/restore app for people to just pull themselves.
