A2/Db3150 Backup with A2uploder script.

This tutorial/guide is about a method to backup the contents of your A2 phone file system, using a script and A2 Uploader. All files are backed to the disk in a single session.

Download Script.  Right Click and Then select SaveTargetAs/SaveLinkAs to Download this text file.

Start A2Uploader.
Then press “…”  for MISC files.
Insert the Script file and press “Write Script”.
Now connect your phone by holding “C” Button or “2+5” Button.
A2Uploader will now begin the read process. It will copy all the files to A2Uploader\ph out\ directory. This will take time, so wait for it to complete.

The FS is mapped on your computer and constructed just as in the phone. This completes the backup of the File System. You can restore files if you screw them while modding your phone.

Thanks to NAZCA at SE-LifeStyle for the Script.

To understand it more you can download the video tutorial.

    if u wanna restore whole fs back again then reflashing fs will help u

  13. bhuvan says

    no way boss!

  14. baineteo says

    Hi bhuvan!

    You said to restore I would need to use XS++ or SETools, but from what I know (i’m new to this) newer phones like the W995 can’t be used on XS++ and SE Tools right?

  15. bhuvan says

    restore..u mean reflash right?
    u can reflash using a2 uploader
    look in a2 uploader guide

  16. ape793 says

    Thank you for this procedure. I seemed to work. I have w760 which I think is A2/db3150 & CID 52. I am newbee here. Thanks for all advice. How would I go about restoring my phone when (not if … heh) I mess it up? If I wanted to restore with this backup I just made, how would I do that? If I wanted to ‘reflash’ how would I do that? (general answer fine…I’ll search through threads to find details!) Thanks in advance! The ape.

  17. bhuvan says

    look in a2 uploader
    ull find how to reflash there

  18. hv says

    were are the backups saved?

  19. bhuvan says

    the folder in which a2 uploader.exe is situated

  20. dj516nadz says

    i have a w995 which is only working on mass storage though usb, it will not switch on for me to backup any contacts etc.
    any help would be much appriciated. thanks

  21. Puremoons says

    Hello, I know my question will sound dumb since someone else already asked the same question, but I can’t find the ph_out folder, there are only two programs in my a2 uploader folder and that is the a2 uploader.exe, gg setup, and a folder called log, that’s it….can anyone help? thank you 🙂
