I'm new to mobileread and new to e-book devices. I have got a Sony PRS-T1 some weeks ago, and I would like to root my device. I would like to do a backup prior to rooting. I have read the "rupor procedure" at this link
I don't use any Windows machine, so I would like to know if there's some document that describes the backup/restore procedure using rupor rescue from a linux machine. I think I understand how to boot in "recovery mode" using an SD card and pressing HOME and MENU buttons. I can use minicom to access my T1, but how can I proceed to backup my device from a Linux machine (no win32diskimager or Roadkil's Disk Image applications)? And how can I restore the backup from the same linux machine?
Thanks in advance.
