    FYI, I was able to get this to work with sshdroid. You just need to specify --rsync-path=/data/data/eu.kowalczuk.rsync4android/files/rsync when issuing the remote rsync command (if you want less errors, I also recommend --no-p --no-g --no-t depending on what kind of filesystem your local is)

    UPDATE for 4.4.3: source directory is always / no matter what I specify. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Allows easy backup of my sdcard. Please add the ability to backup/restore configuration to sdcard. Typing the config on a phone keyboard is really painful.

    Anybody has an idea why rsync is about 50 % slower on CM11 than on older Android OS (4.1, 4.2) on the same hw?
