VitaBackup - Backup & Restore Utility[WIP]

Post by Joel16 » Thu Feb 01, 2018 2:34 am

Thought I'd post this since I decided on getting back to this project. This was a project requested and designed by Berion, who wanted a developer to turn it into an actual program. I did accept to do it a long time ago, however with school and other projects I didn't have time to pick it up. However, I'm back and ready to get this thing started. So this utility aims to backup and restore VITA specific files (hardware ids, activation data, databases etc) on the go with a pretty nice GUI (designed by Berion). There's not really much to say for now but you can track my progress through GitHub.

Current Features:
  • Make multiple .tar backups
  • Restore multiple .tar backups
  • Select backup destination (ux0 or ur0)
Planned features:
  • Might support more formats as well.
  • Back up to FTP/USB.
  • more (later).

Change-log:
  • Completely re-structured the backup process:
This gives the user 100% flexibility on what they want to back up.
The user can decide on a name and path like so:
Modify the path.txt file in ur0:/data/VitaBackup/path.txt and add entries in the following format:

[name]~[path]

Example:
Trophies~ux0:/user/00/trophy
Licenses~ux0:/license


Do not put a forward slash at the end if it's a folder.
  • Prevent home button and auto-suspend during backup/restore process.
  • Only display scroll bar if we have more than 5 files.
  • Use the proper enter/cancel buttons depending on your device's region. (JP uses the "Cross" button to cancel items)
  • Backup archives have their timestamps separated by a '-'. (Example: some_file-2018-02-08.tar)
  • Added a light theme in options. (Thanks to Berion for the design)
  • Added minor touch controls in options and main menu.

Version 1.10 has been re-uploaded. Please re-download if you haven't. I just needed to make two quick fixes:

- Reset touch positions after using the touch screen (Will not interfere with the buttons anymore)
- Home button will no longer be blocked (even if the backup/restore process fails to read an entry properly)
