How to flash a backup?

  • I created an image backup through recovery. It is saved in the /data folder. I flashed another image that I did not like. How can I download back (through recovery) this backup from the / data folder?

  • Boot into recovery mode and download it from there or boot the currently installed image and access /data/.recovery with a FTP program to download the image.

  • Thank you. This I can/know. Question about something else.

    Is it possible (while in recovery) to flash a backup from the /data/ folder without downloading it to the computer?

  • yes, there is a not common known way

    But this requires more than basic Dreambox/Linux knowledge and should only be done by experienced users who know what they are doing
    This way is only usefull if the rescueloader Webinterface is not recoverable broken or if you like the thrill

    so it's never common used :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes::winking_face_with_tongue:
