Default Backup & Flash of Big Image Files like OpenPli etc.

Backup & Flash of Big Image Files like OpenPli etc. Problem: SOLVED!


* Takes 5 to 10 minutes to install depending on you
* Few seconds to start backup or flash backed up image
* Under 4 minutes to backup or flash image


This has been a problem for big images, but no more.

* Backup every 2 weeks AND before updates/changes in case of crash



* Files link at bottom of post.



*** EASY INSTRUCTIONS: ***


################################

* install NFI ImageTools-2.0

in Files link at bottom of this post then rename a copy of it to 1.ipk & put it /root/tmp/, see picture below
(or ftp if can't see your satellite box in Windows network).
Then telnet command:

opkg install -force-overwrite /tmp/1.ipk

or simply install from TSpanel: Tunisiasat & search(green button) for ool
Thanks to MFaraj for NFIimageTools

################################

* install dflash_12.2.7_all (in Files link at bottom of this post)

by renaming & telneting command as before :

opkg install -force-overwrite /tmp/1.ipk


################################

** Path fix **:

Default configuration is /media/hdd/backup but my attached hard disk is /media/usb/backup
If your disk path is different, it will give error saying not found, so:

** I EDIT dflash's main source file: plugin.py:

After installation in:

1- /usr/lib/enigma2/python/Plugins/Extensions/dFlash/
I edit plugin.py (in notepad or any txt editor) by:
replacing 3 cases of hdd with usb (my path is /media/usb/backup but default is /media/hdd/backup)

Of course you replace it with whatever is your backup device's path

2- delete plugin.pyo

3- restart enigma2 to compile a new plugin.pyo from our new plugin.py file


################################


.


.
Or YOU CAN SIMPLY:

.



Alternatively on first backup when it asks for route, just edit ../hdd/.. to ../usb/.. or whatever your path by:

REMOTE CONTROL KEYS: < deletes, keys 2,3,...,8,9 are a,..,z
Also: Left & right arrow keys (besides OK button)

You have to correct your path thus every time you backup.
OR for a permanent fix, do above previous instructions: ** EDITING plugin.py!



################################


.



.
* Launch dflash (Menu: Setup: Flashing & Backup)

* Press Blue_Button (Configuring) & you'll get to above photo screen

* set Flashtool option (top one) to recovery or nfiwrite, I prefer nfiwrite

* set Backuptool (2nd line) to mkfs.jffs2

* set Swapsize [ MB ] near bottom to: 0512

* Press Green_Button (OK) to save

################################


* Setup a swapfile in TSpanel (might be necessary!):

.


.


.
I prefer 512 size, 1024 is a *** laggy with some plugins.
This might not be necessary as dflash has swap built in but if not successful do this:

* set swapfile to 512 in TSpanels: tools2: swap manager

* set to Autostart

* ACTIVATE

AND set swapfile in Dflash: configs (blue button) to 0512 for Swapsize as explained before.


################################

REMEMBER:

.

.

1- Backup with attached dflash (versions older than only a few months old stopped working on OpenPli2.1 & 4.0 if too big!) via:
Menu: Setup: Flashing & Backup

.


.
2- Restore (Flash backed up image) with NFI ImageTools-2.0 as in below image via:
Menu: Plugins: NFI image Tools

.


.


Choose Working directory
(point it where your backup was stored)
.



Leave auto swap size (0) to default
Then choose: Flash Image

.


Select which one, press OK or blue button, done!
Can change path by Yellow_button.

.



Or if box has crashed: via PC Browser in box hard reset as in above photo, then browsing to: IP Number.

Keep a recent or even just one old backup on computer. Then you can revive it and then flash back the latest backup quickly.

################################

##############################

If your backup fails, happens about %10 of times for me (not a biggie), i.e. finishes too early & small size, try:
start swap manager & activate it in TSpanel, or reboot e2, or full reboot.
