This article explains the restore procedure for the Foxbox G20 internal microSD.
In order to follow this guide you need just:
Using a common Linux distribution, the three internal partitions (kernel, rootfs e data) will be automatically mounted and shown. Their addresses into your PC's filesystem are:
Below there is a list of most commonly saved files, anyway please remember to save all of your other custom configurations, changes to the GUI, etc.
To save the “Address book”, backup the file:
(if it doesn't exist: /media/rootfs/mnt/flash/root/source/gsmbox )
To save the “Incoming SMS” list, backup the file:
(if it doesn't exist: /media/rootfs/mnt/flash/root/source/gsmin )
To save the “Outgoing SMS” list, backup the file:
(if it doesn't exist: /media/rootfs/mnt/flash/root/source/gsmout )
To save the “Incoming MMS” list, backup the files:
To save the “Valid users” list, backup the file:
(if it doesn't exist: /media/rootfs/mnt/flash/root/source/useradmin/users )
Obviously, after the restore you just need to copy back these files to the original folder.
This step will restore the filesystems, formatting the partitions. So before doing it please verify that:
Firstly you have to format properly the microSD card. Usually, we do it with GParted (available on official repository) following this structure (we assume the usage of a 2GB card, for the 4GB one follow the dimensions in brackets):
|SMS/MMS & Sms2Mail Versions|
|EasyG2 & Icinga Versions|
Then you have to download the required files. They are:
Please place all of them in the same folder (later, as an example, we will use /home/test/ ).
You have to unzip the one named KernelVerC.tar.bz2, but not the others.
Now you have to substitute inside the script the string ./rootfsXYZ.tar.bz2 with the name of the rootfs file provided, and the same for the string ./dataXYZ.tar.bz2 .
Note that, only if your microSD is not in /dev/sdbX/ , you have to substitute also the wrong occurences in the script with the right ones.
Firstly, open a Console and move into the folder containing the files (with cd /home/test/ ).
Then, launch the script with root-priviledges (with sudo ./restoreVerC.sh ).
At the end of the procedure, a message == Restore procedure successful == will be prompted. If some error occured during the restore, you will see the message !! Restore failed (cod: N) !!. Please look into the script when this happened (so, when that code is generated) and fix the problem.
Note that you can already set the IP address of the device editing the file /media/rootfs/etc/network/interfaces .
Just follow backwards the steps you made during phase 1 to reach the internal microSD.
