This is EXACTLY what I need right now. My pre2 won't boot past the HP logo, but I can access it via novaterm and get data with winscp. I want to doctor, but I want to make a backup, first.

I tried running the script with "sh save.sh".
It ran through the script and said "blah blah is not installed" for pretty much everything (since I don't have everything installed, heh), but I don't a saverestore folder. I do have Angry Birds and the Glu Transformers game, so I would expect at least *some* data would be backed up.
Any thoughts? Did I do something wrong? Thanks so much for this in the first place! It's really super helpful. To be honest, the data that would be lost if I can't get this to work is nothing I can't live without; this is more the "would be nice to have" portion of phone-data-recovery, before I Doctor.
