Full Backup

Problem: How Can I make a full backup of my hard drive?

Solution: For a full backup, you need to get the partition table and download all partitions from 2 to 14.

1. Access If you haven't done so already, you need to start the Vanilla Bootloader. [code] sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./nvflash –bl ../prebuilt/fastboot.stock.bin –go

2. Partition Table Now get the partition table. [code] sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./nvflash -r –getpartitiontable partitiontable.txt

3. Partitions Now you need to download all partitions from 2 to 14. This will take a while. You will receive an error with partition 12 (?). That is ok. Use the following command and replace “X” with the partition number. [code] sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./nvflash -r –read X part-X.img

4. Packing Depending on your model, you have now downloaded up to 16GB of data. To not waste space you should pack all the downloaded files into one archive - and store it in a safe place.
