How To - Restore Backup Files !

PostSat Jan 11, 2014 11:46 pm

I see a lot of you are struggling in restoring your .bak files for Junk Jack X. Don't know what I'm talking about?
A .bak file is the leftover file when you delete a world. The original world file will be deleted, but your backup file will still exist.
Okay, let's get started, shall we?


Restoring Backups


Requirements:
a: PC or Jailbroken iOS Device
b: Good listening skills.
c: A brain.


PC Use


1) First of all, you are going to want to have a file viewer for your PC. WinRar for example.

2) Download iFunBox and find Junk Jack X inside the PC application. (Your idevice must be connected to view its files).
a: Applications > Junk Jack X > Documents > Worlds
b: You will see a backup file of your recently deleted world, but not the original world file.
c: Backup file will be named - name.dat.bak . "Name" is whatever you have named your deleted world.

3) Copy the .bak file and paste it into a folder wherever you want. (Desktop folder is recommended.)

4) Use WinRar to find the .bak file in your desktop folder, or wherever you pasted it.

5) Find the file, and rename it to name.dat instead of name.dat.bak .
a: Make sure the original .bak file is backupped (oh, the irony) so it is able to try again.

6) Paste the new renamed file into your Junk Jack X world folder back in iFunBox.
a: And delete the old one.
b: If it works, you can delete the file on your desktop also.


iOS Use


1) Follow these steps if your iOS device is jailbroken.

2) Download iFile and find Junk Jack X inside the Cydia application.
a: Applications > Junk Jack X > Documents > Worlds
b: You will see a backup file of your recently deleted world, but not the original world file.
c: Backup file will be named - name.dat.bak . "Name" is whatever you have named your deleted world.

3) Copy the .bak file and paste it into a folder wherever you want. (New or Documents Folder is recommended).

4) Find the file, and rename it to name.dat instead of name.dat.bak .
a: Make sure the original .bak file is backupped (oh, the irony) so it is able to try again.

6) Paste the new renamed file into your Junk Jack X world folder back in iFunBox.
a: And delete the old one.
b: If it works, you can delete the file in the other folder you made also.




Side Notes:
This method will only work if your .bak file has bytes. This is where brain is needed.
This currently only works for standalone worlds. I will try and experiment for adventure worlds.



Transferring Worlds


PC Use Only


1) First of all, you are going to want to have a file viewer for your PC. WinRar for example.

2) Get your first device (transferring from) ready to plug into your PC.

3) Download iFunBox and find Junk Jack X inside the PC application. (Your idevice must be connected to view its files).
a: Applications > Junk Jack X > Documents > Worlds

4) Copy the world you would like to transfer to another device.
a: Then create a shortcut for it.

5) Switch to your new device (transferring to) into the PC.
a: Still be in iFunBox, and go to Applications > Junk Jack x > Document > Worlds again.

6) Drag, or paste your shortcut file (the world from your old device) into the worlds folder.
a: Delete the shortcut after. :)



Whew. Hope this helps. :)

Because iTunes doesn't allow you to go into folders, so you'd backup all your worlds and your character.
Which, in retrospect, doesn't sound that bad.

Found another .bak of my world, and I followed the instructions, but I can't get it to work. Every time I try to load/rename it the app crashes :(
