Hi guys, here is something most of you will probably LOVE! 🙂 It is dedicated to the people who usually switch firmware, and like to flash firmwares as soon as they come out, without wondering of the problems it might bring 🙂
Have you ever had problems backing up your data? Have you ever had problems with pc studio making a mess in your phone because of incomplete backups, or making your phone unstable after you restored a backup?
Well, n2o4 will offer you a solution!!!!
This is a software coded by madhacker 😉 it was in C++ and it was less userfriendly but I forced it to re write the software in QT to make it easier to use….(you’ll need Qt libraries to use this 😉 )
the software is called: START BACKUP!
startbackup is an useful application that allows you to save your sensible data to the mass memory (E drive). It has got a simple user-friendly interface with some buttons that allow you to activate, restore or disable backup.
When you press the ACTIVATE button, the application will save, during the next boot, your phonebook, calendar, t9 dictionary, alarm, browser bookmark, notes, bluetooth associations and, last but not least, all messages (SMS, MMS and BLUETOOTH messages)!
If you want to restore on phone your data, open StartBackup and select Restore button then restart the phone, and you’re done!
if you want to switch rom just copy the startbackup folder with your files inside, flash the other firmware, copy the folder back in its place, reinstall startbackup, and hit restore, that’s all! 😀
No more cries for your lost smses, no more anger, no more PcStudio or homemade solutions!
and what if you want to make a hardreset because your firmware is not behaving properly but you’re not at home and you don’t have a PC with you?
JUST press ACTIVATE, reboot, and copy then Backup folder to the External memory card, and then make the hardreset! 🙂
I told you n2o4 will be REVOLUTIONARY! 🙂 STAY TUNED, NEW SUPRIRES ARE COMING TOMORROW!! (I just discovered something WONDERFUL for social networks users!! :D)

first of all look… abt 90 percent ppl r using spb mobile shell.. so dont put any 3d navigation and 3d taskmanager in it….
use thread msgs instead of conversation… or dont put any of them.. we can install by ourselves..
delete all the things in the samsung folder which u give in n203..
plz use same kastors.. the best at the moment…
delete homescreens like samsung widget and every other.. as everybody is using spb shell…
and yes it should be as good as n203.. in speed and stability wise.
i hope u understand wat i mean to say…. now u decide i am right or not..
thread sms has problems as you already saw in hx’s roms.
why deleting all things in the samsung folders? I deleted 4 softwares, which are the only ones you can reinstall if you want. I don’t want people to miss their favourite software just for 1mb+ in C drive… 🙂
Uhm – when everybody uses that battery-eating shell, I shall also try it
Please let Nav3D in the rom!
With the rest I can confirm.
P.S.: Finally something really useful!!! (an app for heavy-users)
try spb shell 😉
nav3d will never be in the rom, users must be able to decide…
maybe I have a method to add nav or task3d without any 3rd party software 🙂
wooowwww….it is a vert good idea and surprise…be succued….
add backing up landmarks (gps locations)
I’ll see what I can do 🙂
And please get rid of KS in menu and use theme from LITv2.
I only meant to let Nav3D in Z: so one can activate it with PowerBoot.
lots of people don’t like the desire theme bro 🙂
ok for nav3d ;)Why should I delete it 🙂
i have never used your firmware, but after hx v7 i guess ill give n204 a try. but ive read that you dont have trackid? and are you photos/videos better compared to hyperx?
you have to try the firmwares to choose which is better 🙂
HOWWW…thats so cool!! really nice work man.
ps:you’re my favorite cooker, so back to the kitchen…I’m starving!
I LOVE YOUR FOOD MAN! 😛
sure man (*faenil chewing*) I’m cooking right now (*moves the pot*) xD
And one thing…in portuguese please too. 😉
Hello Faenil and Madhacker ( King i8910 )
Very happy news go on both of you I am on heat waiting these ideas come to the light to give them a try and feel the new techniques run on my Omnia i8910 and please try to improve the camera quality.
thanks man 🙂
for camera quality, don’t expect improvements, I think this camera is good enough, this is a phone, not a compact camera 😉 the lens is small, the shutter is slow…you can’t have much from it 🙂
i8910’s camera is one of the best out there in the market on a mobile phone..And cookers improved it a lot..With my i8910’s camera outdoors and in daylight, i get awesome pictures, some are even better than my Olympus FE-47 14-Megapixel Camera (outdoors picture, when cameras in Auto mode, ofc you can get better pics with a compact camera but i8910 is as good as a not so good compact camera :D)
Anyway, because of stupid Samsung it seems like you cant do any more huge improvements, besides, whats left to improve? You guys did everything and thanks :D.I think (and obviously you think too :D) you should focus on applications…For example, it would be nice if we could played motion sensor games without tooo fast motions…Or some othe good apps, like Wikitude, whihc you already gave us..Thank you very much :)…Really excited about the wonderful thing for social network users 😀 Backup is a good thing too altough i dont have any problems with Samsung PC Studio 🙂 but i guess i am one of the few :D..
ok, caught your point 😉
Ciaò faenil 😀
Ma tu cucini anche quando stai al mare ❓
Questa del backup è eccellente per chi come me fa molte
prove prima di dire la sua su prodotto. 😉
NIENTE 2o4 di corsa
grazie ahmed 🙂
haha your a legend Faenil, keep em coming, though is it possible to have an option to select only what we want to backup!
Cheers amigo your doing fine with you mate
ok, I’ll tell madhacker 😉
😐 Thanks man….may you always succeed in your work and exams. The best thing i noticed at your site that every single person getting reply to his comment/compliment in satisfactory manner. This is call respect, respect to what you are doing….and all of us feel you are one of the most respected cooker of i8910 at this moment. Great work and great progress….be happy always 😐
thanks man 🙂
If possible, let us chose E or F for Backup – I am by my self would better have my backup on F then on E
I will tell madhacker..
great news.but..faenil..what about call recording???
I can’t work on everything at the same time 🙂
That special backup/restore application, Does it fully and completely backup and restore our phone?
What I mean is, lets say I make a folder on root C: and I call it “MyMovies” and I copy a movie into that folder.
With this new backup/restore app after I do a full backup and when I restore it will it restore the “MyMovies” folder along with everything else?
Also when we MOVE apps and games into different folders will this backup/restore app restore the games and apps we have moved to our new folders we created?
What I am trying to ask is, is this a complete backup/restore app or is it simular to the PC Studio backup and the phones internal backup both of which do not do a full restore of everything…….
read the post and you’ll find the things it makes a backup of
Once again 😥
Did you see HX site faenil? its not good to copy somebodys work and publish it by own name, i used to respect HX team but i dont know why they are doing this…..i feel that the reason i switch back to this site and n2 roms….keep sharing mate 😐
he hasn’t used my work, he’s using an older version of QT… 😉 btw, of course it seems strange that he releases the qt edition just a few days after I have released the qt installer…
come hai messo online le novità sul QT, “guarda caso” il giorno dopo HyperX mette online un nuovo firmware con il QT integrato….e ovviamente non scrive “grazie a Faenil”…
Sti tedeschi, pensano che solo loro sono i migliori!!!!
non deve darmi credit perchè lui ha usato una versione più vecchia, quindi non ha usato i miei files…ovviamente guarda caso però se n’è uscito due giorni dopo che ne ho parlato io, ma non fa niente…non mi piace discutere per queste cose, ma mi fa piacere che la gente le noti…
Great APP !!!
I need it….
When the new firmware n204 will release?
will it release this month or in the first week of August? thanx and regards…
I think second week of August…but it depends on how experiments go on…
Non si potrebbe avere questo utilissimo tool anche per n2o3? Così quando passeremo a n2o4 😉 non avremo problemi!
ottima osservazione 🙂 il problema è che startbackup è ancora in lavorazione…vanno aggiunte delle opzioni 😉
Son curiosissimo di conoscere al novità sui social network!
ma un’applicazione che “sistemi” la batteria???
al momento ho visto che la mia si sta “degradando”: mi dura si e no una giornata… 🙁
PS: come posso mandarti dei suggerimenti da inserire nel nuovo FW ? ovviamente senza che qualcuno se ne prenda i meriti….
purtroppo questa è una cosa che capita sovente un po’ dappertutto, anche nel mio lavoro, ma prendo le mie contromisure e quando è il momento mi prendo le mie soddisfazioni… 😉
una batteria non ha cariche infinite…prima o poi si degrada…cmq puoi provare a farla scaricare COMPLETAMENTE e ricaricare COMPLETAMENTE per 2 o 3 volte e vedrai che si rigenererà un po’ 😉
per i suggerimenti, vai nella sezione support e troverai la mia mail 😉
MAN!!! YOU RULES!!!
Thanks from Brazi!!!
you’re welcome man 🙂
Ciaò madhacker & faenil 😀
Vorrei che “NON” facesti le cose di corsa,
meglio aspettare che “RATTOPPARE”. 😀
Se questa rom batte la 2o3,la chiamerei “QUEEN” 😀
non male come nome 🙂
i think there is 1 hunk that hates u the most and that is ur phone coz u have burned his ass by flashing it again and again.haha. best of luck bro ur roms r the best.love u
yeah if my phone had a mouth, he would not stop screaming “you piece of s*** stop deleting my mind 20 times a day!” xD
I got one thing to say : RESPECT for your work and the service you give to your users, that makes a man honorable ❗
The rest is in the email lol 😉
Hey man, can you also backup call log? i remember it’s a file called logdb.dat or sth like that and it’s in a folder (sorry forgot the name) in the Private folder in C drive.
anyway, thks for the great job. Looking fhttp://bernabei.me/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_surprised.giforward to n2o4 😀
Ok I’ll tell madhacker 😉
If you include Route66 or any other GPS software bookmark backup in your FW, I will donate again.
I will let you know if I have any news about this 😉
Hey Faenil. I’d ask – is there any possibility to port music player from n97/5800 or at least to make the samsungs player have quality as the buggy, neverworking TTpod? That’s the only reason why i’m still havimg my iPhone with me – i8910 sound quality is simply terrible and powerMP3 doesn’t have any connection to the homescreen, what really sux. And lcg jukebox looks ugly… The only thing i’m missing on my i8910 is music… I’d love if i could get this fixed once and for all. Thanks for ur work mate 🙂
working on music quality is not easy…
1.) Please backup C:\data\apps\widgetizer\*.ini
2.) Please backup C:\sytem\data\jbaktaskman.ini
3.) Please create the following hidden directories:
about the hidden folders, do you mean you don’t want the images in the gallery?
Yes, thats exactly what I mean!
