Hey all. (Hopefully) Simple question. Can I use the documented NAND Flash Backup & NAND Flash Restore to safely backup and restore the currently installed image + root + home + data? My idea is to use this so I can simply swap between OZ/opie, OZ/gpe, OZ/e17, pdaxrom & cacko without having to go through the whole reflash, reinstall personal apps, update & upgrade process to get back to square one.

I went out & bought a Lexar 512mb (factory formatted to FAT16) & it worked. smile.gif so I'll keep that card just for nands.

Last question (well ok, I doubt it too smile.gif). The back creates a file, systc860.dbk. Can this be renamed to 'whatever.dbk' and the restore will recognize it? What happens when I then have multiple files on the card, will the restore allow me to pick, or 'there can be only one' smile.gif?

Thanks for the help.
