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.

Can this be renamed to 'whatever.dbk' and the restore will recognize it?

I believe it needed to be name systcxxx(x).dbk....

at 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?

Well to not contradict my last statement I will have to say no...

Can't have multiple files with the same name... :-)
