ZN5 Backup Tools 1.0

Here is my ZN5 version of Backup Tools.

Even though it used the same name as my E2 version, the code is completely different. I rewrite the code to make sure it would worked well in my ZN5. This is written in Bash and requires showQ and showRadio. So any modded firmware should be able to run this. In addition, you need to have Mgx Box, MPKG Box, or similar software to install MGX.

I just added some basic features for the backup and restore. The backup file is stored in tar archive and the file name is generated by date. By default, the backup file is stored in /mmc/mmca1/backup, you can change it anyway.

It support backup and restore following data:

  • Contact, SMS, and other related data stored in /ezxlocal/sysDatabase/main.db
  • Menu Tree
    this should work only on the same firmware, so it is useful when you want to try a new firmware and then return to your old firmware, you restore this file and your menu tree will still the same as before you flashed
  • Web Profiles
  • Settings
    I would recommend you to restore this on the same firmware, although it might worked fine to use the backup for the other firmware

The best feature it has is it support multiple backup. So you can choose to restore backup from any date you want (as long as you have the backup). 🙂


If the download didn’t work, try to right click and choose save link as (or other similar option in your browser).

Hope you find it useful. Cheers… 🙂
