ceemmc options

Depending on whether CoreELEC is booted from external media or eMMc, several options are possible:

Option Description
Migrate This option can be used to migrate the current CoreELEC dual mode installation on internal eMMc to a standalone installation.
Use this option if Android can be removed and gain access to the maximum available amount of storage from the internal eMMc.
There is no option to roll back this operation as Android will be removed.
Renew This option can be used to renew the current CoreELEC installation on internal eMMc.
The tool ceemmc will ask if data on internal eMMc /flash and/or /storage should be renewed.
Be aware that all existing data on the renewed chosen partition will be lost.
This option can be used if CoreELEC is for example no longer able to boot from eMMc.
Never use this option to update CoreELEC on eMMc. User data may get lost.
Copy This option can be used to create a bootable copy of the current CoreELEC installation on eMMc to an insert SD Card or USB Flash Drive.
All user data on the partition chosen to copy to will be overwritten on the target media.
If non-existent, the current used CoreELEC partition layout will be created on the target media.
This requires the SD Card or USB Flash Drive to be formatted prior to copying the data over.
Backup This option can be used to create a backup of the current CoreELEC installation on eMMc.
The backup data will be saved at: /storage/backup/eMMC_backup/coreelec_flash if the flash partition is chosen
OR
/storage/backup/eMMC_backup/coreelec_storage if the storage partition is chosen on the current used CoreELEC boot device.
Any existing backup on the CoreELEC boot device will be replaced by the current backup when using this option.
When using migrate or renew with option backup, this is the backup that will be restored.
