    You can only really backup your settings. There is a function in the web gui (the one you activate at boot) to backup the image but its only for debug purposes.

    To be honest if you use dreambox edit for your settings you can have the box up and running after you flashed in about 2mins, so a full backup is not really needed.

    extract to /hdd then telnet in and
    cd /hdd/backup

    then ./build-nfi-image.sh

    itl then backup to /hdd u can edit the build-nfi-image and choose a location youself

    also depending on what image u have u can also change the name of the script and place in /usr/script and be able to execute via the blue panel instead of telnet

    cheers

    Why do you need to make a backup of an image that you already have?

    Re: How Make Backup Of DM800 Clone

    i used to do this with my tm9100 but everytime i went to use the backup i found there was a newer version of the image out, cant you just create a image as you normally would with the image itsself through the software update create backup without bootloader or dosent it work on this image?
