Online Nandroid Backup Tool Version 6, Many New Features
The last time we brought you news about the Online Nandroid Backup tool, it was at Version 5, which added more robust file system support so it could support most devices. Very recently, the Online Nandroid Backup tool was updated to Version 6. Much like Version 5, Version 6 adds a bunch of new features to make the backups better and more stable.
XDA Senior Member ameer12345767890, the tool’s developer, released Version 6 along with an extensive change log. Before Version 6, there were many incremental updates to fix various bug issues and problems. So the fixes in Version 6 aren’t all that have been fixed since Version 5 was released. The new features include:
Added: CWM 6 style incremental backups.
Added: Garbage cleaning for incremental backups.
Added: Advanced backup / Selective backup.
Added: Long arguments for timezone.
Added: Setting alternate storage media via command line flag.
Added: Setting sd-ext path via command line flag.
Added: Battery level checking for HTC One X.
Added: Split backup mode (CWM 6+ only).
Added: Backup mode detection via .default_backup_format file (used by CWM).
Added: Advanced backup mode detection via .advanced_backup_partitions file.
Added: /flexrom and mmcblk0_start partitions backup (for Acer devices).
Added: Revamped and more useful progress indicators.
Added: Na Rnfgre Rtt.
Added: Replacing named backups with command line flag.
Added: Disabling notifications with command line flag.
Added: Setting progress indicator type with command line flags.
Added: Trapping exit/kill signals and cleaning up before exiting.
Added: Prompt whether to replace if backup name exists.
