I have found some new N900's for sale for reasonable price. My ageing 2010 veteran is showing signs of age. Question I have is it possible to make a perfect clone of my current N900 so I can keep all the years of command line mods and tweeks I have done?

I know Nokia's own backup just covers media files and contacts.
using Gsync/Rsync I can backup most files to external drive.

But what about a real clone? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I've had mixed results trying to clone an N900. Some members here claim that Backupmenu should do the trick. It did not work for me without issues.

I'd like to get my hands another n900 to try N900 core duo mod.

There is NO such thing as "finding new n900's"

What you found are poor chinese copies.

or you found the n900 equivalent of this...

Haahha....

Ah Chen....
It is no disparagement directed at your country.

Here....in Canada....
There are many fake brands...poor copies... of maple syrup....
Thankfully they must be labeled so ...
Since the difference in taste is the difference between ...is akin to fine wine vs motor oil.

My only lament with the Chinese method of copying ...
Is that usually the Chinese make a knock off cheaper and better than the original!
Hell I am usually the first to order ...."...."...whatever ..from China...
Just because of this fact.

Sadly the n900 isn't copied as well...


Hmmm....
Yknow...
I have an incredibly way out there......wacky idea........

I didn't mean that I sometimes uses Chinese copy to describe certain things myself as well...

The point was we seem to have a taste of motor oil, instead of maple syrup to the majority. No one was even bothered to taste it.

They could be genuine new n900's.

Here in the backwaters of the known universe it is possible that some stock still exists, unlike in mainstream markets. If i can fine a way to clone one, i might take the chance, better than 600 eur on ebay or the perpetutual neo900.

I was thinking of flashing new phone to thumb state, same as my current one. Then cloning from this state. Is this the same as you did and still had issues?

Those are absolutely bl**dy fantastic!

I doubt a "new" N900 would be anything of that kind. More like...

The thread that I linked describes exactly what I did. I admit it may be a bit long though. In short, IIRC, I made sure to install the same kernel and BackupMenu on both and then just did a full BackupMenu copy of the old one (i.e. both root and opt) and restored it on the new one.
