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.

thks

Just a note to say that alls working great. I've confirmed that no matter how many .dbk files you have on the card, the systc860.dbk is the one that wil be restored (on my C860, anyway). So far I've got the following on the card:

oz-gpe-3.5.4.rc4-working-image.dbk (135mb)
cacko-1.23-base-install.dbk (135mb)
systc860.dbk (0b)

(the systc860.dbk file is just any empty placeholder to remind me what the image name has to be). I just move the image that I want to restore to systc860.dbk & it works like a charm.

Thanks again for all the help. takecare
