TWRP misses the internal storage (/data/media) in the phone whatever the device. My hack allows to integrate internal storage in TWRP data backups.
But currently TWRP can’t decrypt at all the data partition of the FP4 (i.e /data), so there is nothing my guide will change to that. Using adb won’t be enough, you will only be able to save the internal storage manually (/data/media/0), and copying /data from a switched on phone with adb is a bad idea (and very probably won’t work).
Currently, no backup of the whole device such as TWRP does is possible on the FP4. Apps such as Titanium will work with root for backing up apps, and to use adb backup is a bad idea IMO, as it’s deprecated.
Hope it clarifies.
System settings are on the data partition, as all the user data.
Thank you for helping me out here - there’s a lot of new stuff to wrap my head around coming from the fruit of convenience…
So there is no reliable way (without root) to backup and restore system settings running /e/ on a FP4 at the moment? I can only document and restore everything manually as long as TWRP doesn’t support decrypting the data partition?
Is there something in the pipeline I can be looking out for?
FAILED (remote: ‘Command not supported in default implementation’)
after executing adb reboot bootloader ‘Fastboot Mode’ is in red letters (as DEVICE STATE - locked).
Is Fastboot Mode disabled?? How to enable it? It would be very helpful to have some comments on this within the manual as well.
very confusing… any ideas how to get this working?
thanks for any help in advance.
That’s already benn said last year (2021)
The discussion about backup was already held and exactly this statement was part of it at that time. Here or in the /e/ forum.
Therefore, it can really take longer. Must remain patient
