For Opera bookmarks, backup the file called 'opera6.adr' in \WINDOWS\Opera9 and just drop it in the corresponding SASHIMI\Auto\Root\WINDOWS\Opera9 folder to have it auto-restored when you run SASHIMI.

Dunno about the logins or Rescoe, but I have a few minutes before I have to go see clients -- let me see if I can turn anything up. I will edit this post if I do...

EDIT: You might try using CeRegEditor if you haven't already to find your Rescoe registration data in the registry (if it's there) and then export it to a file. Take a snapshot before you register it, then after, then compare snapshots to find the differences.

Not sure about the programs tab, as I keep it disabled anymore -- but I can help with the weather. To backup your weather settings you need to save a regfile to SASHIMI\Auto\REG with some of the data from --

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\Manila]

In particular, you need to backup 'Weather.CityList' but I would also include:

'Weather.ServerURLOverride'
'Locale'
'Weather_Focus'
'Weather.Fahrenheit'
'Weather.PostFirstRun'

After running SASHIMI you will have any pre-cooked-in locations removed and overwritten with your own -- and you will only need to hit 'Update'. For instance my file looks like this:
Quote:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HTC\Manila]


"Weather.CityList"="NAM|US|CO|FORT COLLINS,NAM|US|DC|WASHINGTON,NAM|US|NY|NEW YORK"
"Weather.ServerURLOverride"="http://weather.not2advanced.com/htcweather/forecastdata.php?ac=XDADevs&locCode=%25ls&version= 1&device=innovation"
"Locale"="en-US"
"Weather_Focus"="United States"
"Weather.Fahrenheit"=dword:00000001
"Weather.PostFirstRun"=dword:00000001
Not sure if all the chefs have ROMs with the same weather server URL cooked-in, the one above is simply the one that was already in my registry when I went to back it up. I had no idea previously that a special weather patch server tied to the community was even being used to make things happen.

If you have added a custom city using a database editor of some sort, you will also want to backup the manila file (database file) that you edited, and that file is called 2330fc3c_manila -- place that file in \SASHIMI\Auto\Root\Windows\ to have it restored automatically.

Re: User Customization Backup for Touch Pro using sashimi
 
ok, apparently I am more of a noobie than I thought. I don't understand how to get the information from the registry to place in the shashimi/auto/reg folder. What program and process do I use? I understand the logic of how it works, just not how to get a .reg file that tells shashimi where to put it.

Using the ringtone as an example:

*Ring Tone*
First set the Ring Tone then back up HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\Ringtone0 is where your ringtone registry is, for some reason there is two entries that reference my ringtone file, RingTone0 and RingTone2. I exported both in Storage Card\SASHIMI\Auto\REG

I can see this entry with total commander, do I just copy the entry to the above reg folder on my storage card?


Thanks for your patience.
Jack

yup, click and hold on the file in total commander, when it pops up the menu select copy, browse to Storage Card\SASHIMI\Auto\REG and click copy. and that is it, you have back up the reg key !

let me know if that doesn't work.

How do you create a custom device name? I can't seem to find an option in activesync. I manually changed it in the registry and deleted all mobile devices from activesync, did a soft reset and synced it but it went back to wm_adminis1 or whatever

change the value of HKLM\Ident then export to Storage Card\SASHIMI\Auto\REG and push with Sashimi

yup, he meant export to Storage Card\SASHIMI\Auto\REG

the root folder is for any file you want to be copied over to your root directory of your phone.

Re: User Customization Backup for Touch Pro using sashimi
 
Just reposting some stuff from NRG thread. People are talking about Sahimi back ups. Gonna try to recommend people come over here:

Run the Lumos configuration program (just like you always would) then copy the "settings.txt" to "sashimi\auto\root\program files\lumus" you will need to create all these folders or figure out some way to copy them. Anything in the root folder copies to whatever folder on your device. Sashimi will create the folders if they don't exist, but typically it installs all the apps first. After an auto install I don't have to do anything with lumos (nice). You can do the same thing with ringers just make a mirror of what directory in "root" and Sashimi will copy them for you when you run it.
