Full Version: Duplicate Pdaxrom Setup To Different Z Model?

Hello,

what is necessary to copy a pdaXrom 1.1.0beta3 setup to another Zaurus model (C3100 -> C3200)?
As we saw some weeks ago, a renamed NAND backup file doe not work.
So I would probably have to flash pdaXrom on the other machine and then make a tar backup from the original one's root directory and untar that onto the new machine?

How to do that? I mean, I have to back it up to somewhere, and that somewhere must be mounted somewhere under root, so I would always back up the backup medium (loop)?

How can this be done?

THanks a lot

I have a script which does just that, but I just realised, its not on my website where it should have been. sad.gif I will upload it when I get a chance...

just uploaded it.

actually, its so small, I can even paste it here:

CODE
#!/bin/sh
VERSION="pdaXrom 1.1.0 beta1 - C3000 beta2"
LOC=/mnt/card
NAME=pdaXrom-C3K-backup
echo "backing up $VERSION..."
tar cf - /bin /etc /home /lib /media /opt /root /sbin /usr | gzip > $LOC/$NAME.tgz
echo done

Good & simple. Thanks Meanie. I'd suggest adding 'pP' to the tar command as is 'tar cpPf' so it preserves the ownership & permissions too.
