I followed the directions here

I could backup the kernel of my GTA02 but trying to use that method to backup the rootfs failed 
several times....

  dfu-util - (C) 2007 by OpenMoko Inc.

In demsg I get this error
  usb 5-2: usbfs: USBDEVFS_CONTROL failed cmd dfu-util rqt 161 rq 2 len 4096 ret -110

I have not been able to backup rootfs using this method.

I can flash OK though.

Any ideas?
