Full backup

Added by Daniel Alsace about 1 year ago

Hello,

I want to backup all the phone, and restore the backup on an other phone.

I have a samsung S3 i9300, with the 6.003. I installed on a other phone the replicant-6.0-0004-rc5-i9300.zip

And wanted to backup from the S3 with 003 to the S3 with the replicant-6.0-0004-rc5-i9300

adb backup and adb restore don't work.
I must have exactly the same version? both with 003?

oandbackup doesn't work.

Hi Daniel,
would it be possible to install on your new phone a 0003 and then update it to 0004-rc5 using https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/MinorVersionUpgrade ?

PS : I did not understood dd.

RE: Full backup - Added by Daniel Alsace about 1 year ago

dd if=/dev/phone1 of=/dev/phone2 will be great to backup easily

minor upgrade don't work, it says signature failing.

I can install 003 on the other phone…!

how can I do?

Signature failing is a common error that appears when you try to flash a new version without updating its Recovery before.

Ok, I downgrade one of the phone… I don't know how to update the recovery

RE: Full backup - Added by Daniel Alsace 9 months ago

The adb backup command is really not efficient, I don't know why it doesn't backup everything…!

I must manually backup a lot of things, and other bugs appear…

I downgraded the other phone to have same replicant versions, though.

Do you just want to backup the data partition? If so, you should be able to follow this guide: https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/BackupTheDataPartition

I've backed up my data partition from one phone and then transferred it to another before and it worked well.

Thank you it worked very well!!

I'm happy with that, it's amazing.
