You can use any software you like. I am using xterm just like on my PC.

My PC has /etc/cron.daily/backup-neo that backups the phone if it is
connected during night:
echo please check /home/scratch/neo/`date -I`.log
rsync --delete -axv --numeric-ids 192.168.4.202:"/ /boot" /home/scratch/neo/latest 2> /home/scratch/neo/latest.log
case $ret in
# backup done, let's save it
cp -al /home/scratch/neo/latest /home/scratch/neo/`date -I`
mv /home/scratch/neo/latest.log /home/scratch/neo/`date -I`.log
# neo was not at home
echo "backup failed with return value $ret"
I don't reflash/reinstall, I only upgrade packages with debian.
