Z1 Watch Phone - Backup without root
Jul 31st, 2012, 9:48am
 
This is a cross-post from my post on XDA-Developers.
 
Reproduced here for completeness...
 
This requires issuing commands as root.  Doing this could cause your Watch Phone be unable to boot, thus rendering it unusable.
 
I did a manual backup without rooting (No need for Z4 Root)
 
Download and unrar MT6516 BackUpTool, but do not install anything.
 
On the Linux/Mac box, open the gscript folder, and open back22.sh in editor, or viewer.
 
Connect the watch via USB, and connect via adb shell
 
Cut, paste and execute each line from the back22.sh file
up to and including the last dd command in the first section - in other words
 
Code:
adb shell 


 
Code:
.
.
.
.
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd11 of=/sdcard/backup_/expdb.img 


 
Obviously, you don't do the comment lines.
 
exit the shell
Code:
exit 


 
do:
Code:
adb remount 


 
 
Install yaffs2image:
Code:
adb push <your_path_on_PC_to>/Install/BackUp/yaffs_back_2.2/gen/mkyaffs2image /system/bin/mkyaffs2image 


 
 
Code:
adb shell chmod 4777 /system/bin/mkyaffs2image 


 
(Again, the above is a cut and paste from the script)
 
Code:
adb remount 


(for safety)
 
 
Code:
adb shell 


 
Then cut and paste the remaining 3 mkyaffs2img commands.
Then:
Code:
exit 


 
 
Copy the backup_ folder on the SD car to someplace safe.
If you want, you can remove mkyaffsimg:
 
Code:
adb remount

adb shell rm /system/bin/mkyaffs2image

adb remount 


 
It's definitely more steps, but it leaves the system technically un-touched, un-rooted, and even returnable if you should have to.
