Default *nix backup script, good for Linux, OS X and Windows PCs running CYGWIN

EarlyMon's *nix backup script, good for Linux, OS X and Windows PCs running CYGWIN

Preferred and supported use - grab our Mini-SDK and then unzip this file in the same sdk-tools folder you used to run the Mini-SDK installer.

Alternatively, use a full SDK distribution and ensure that adb is in your PATH environment variable.

  • unzip
  • chmod 755
  • To use:
    • ./

Files are saved under:
  • If using our Mini-SDK or Cygwin:
    • sdk-tools/android_storage_backups
  • Otherwise:
    • $HOME/android_storage_backups
Saved directory folders are named:
  • serial-number_date
  • Optionally, serial-number_date_time if run more than once on the same day
  • Multiple devices can be backed up and distinguished by their serial numbers

Note - Cygwin creates a Linux environment under Windows.
