That's what I'd gone with, and Wifey wrapped it this afternoon. I can always root it on Xmas day...

What a great way to spend Christmas Day! And a great way to piss off the wife! ;)

The only thing I can think of is NFS support in the kernel. And even when I've had it I didn't use it that much.

I'd probably use this, could probably build as a kernel module for inclusion.

OTA ignore/block

Now that I've thought about things, what I'm really looking for is syncing the phone /mnt/sdcard directory to PCs running Windows (7) or Linux as a way to backup. Handy way to push new Nandroid backups or whatever has changed instead of everything. With a separate SD card things were easy, the card contents showed up as a real directory so I just ran Unison on the PCs. MTP doesn't work like that and seems flaky even in Windows.

I guess the best thing for me would be a Samba server on the phone, so I'll try "Samba Filesharing" from the market. NFS server would be second best. It's just a pity Microsoft is a little wobbly with their NFS support (XP has it, 7 in Enterprise and Ultimate only, 8 has it in Pro).

I've found that sshdroid pro and rsync work well as a backup solution, but I had to copy an arm rsync binary into /system/xbin to make it work.

So are you using rsync from the command line? I was hoping for something a little more user friendly... And how fast is it? I'd assume the SSH crypto will hit the CPU pretty hard on the phone. Worth a try though.

I tried "Samba File Sharing" yesterday to turn my phone into a Samba/CIFS server and did a backup of /mnt/sdcard (sans Music folder) with Unison from a Windows PC (Unison is rsync-like with the block checksums etc but also a convenient UI, either text or GUI). Speed wasn't great, transfer rate with Samba over Wifi was about 800 kB/s at best. But after the initial backup with Unison I can now do a quick scan and detect changed files only in a couple of minutes.

Now, if only one could turn the USB interface into a network interface on the phone end for faster than wifi. Or maybe Google will include rsync in adb :)

Thanks for your amazing work!
It would be possible to add a tile to enble/disable sync into quicksettings menu?


I noticed a little strange thing into the last rom that I downloaded.
ChromeBookmarksSyncAdapter.apk is present twice..

There have been a lot of app updates lately you may have noticed - these have now all been integrated into the kitchen, there will be some more improvements before I build the next release. :)

I've just finished investigating the various 'gradient fix' requirements with a view to incorporating them in the next release. Some no longer apply on 4.2 but some, as you can see below, still do. :)

I've made an updated version and assuming it tests OK, i'll incorporate it for the next release! :)

Hi there I've encountered an error (on my part, I think) and I would like to get some advice on how to fix it. I just recently updated my MCR from the Jr5 (4,1 Jelly Bean) straight up to Jr11 (4.2.1 JB). After the update though, my phone keeps on rebooting itself after its even done loading up the homescreen. Why is this happening? If possible, I'd like to know a solution that doesn't involve me restoring to stock and recovering from one of the backups that I have (to tell the truth I did forget to do backup of my latest system). Thanks in advance!
