Backup and restore using ubports-installer
@Flohack Many thanks ! this is what I did after reading on it on google.
@Flohack own 4 of them and can confirm that is it like that on the 4. have we access to the recovery;img for the pro5 ? if yes I can modify it to have the partitions mounted at startup in the recovery.
@AlainW94 No the recovery is the old one from Canonical times, Pro 5, MX 4 and all BQ devices do not have an open tree and we cannot change anything there...
@Flohack Ok so we will have to deal with it in the installer
Awesome, saw you opened a PR here, i'll give you a code review with some pointers. Really appreciate the work you put into this, i'm confident we can get it done fairly soon
@AlainW94 It should be dealt already with, otherwise how would the installer install anything into /data??
@Flohack In my case, I did a check of the mounted partition in the installer, then if it is not mounted, I mount it. (/dev/block/sda44 -> /data)
@NeoTheThird Hi! It was a try. Now I need to do the same with promise-android otherwise it will not work
Re: Git workflow
Here's something i wrote up for another installer user the other day, maybe that's helpful to you
you'll want to keep your
mastercompletely in sync with our
master, so when you navigate to it on your machine, the first thing you'll do is
git checkout masterto make sure you're on your
git pull upstream master --rebaseto fetch the latest version from our
git push origin masterto push our
masteron github. Now if you want to implement a new feature, you will create a branch by going
git checkout -b nameofbranch. Then you make your changes. If you want to create a commit, you
git add path/to/filesfor all your files you want to commit and then go
git commit -m "My Commit Message". As soon as you have all your commits created, go ahead and
git push origin nameofbranchto push your branch to your own fork on github. Then go to the webinterface to create the pull request.
@NeoTheThird Awewome, thanks !!!

Any news on this? I see no changes in the PR in the last month... The idea is awesome, you can do it!
@Fla hi, It still in review. but you can try it a tell us your opinion on it ! I only could test it on Pro5.
