    bkapps.zip install, how?

    Hi all, read the directions pretty thoroughly and I see that there's an option to install the bkapps script before flashing SS for the first time in order to preserve apps, home screens, etc. But I can't for the life of me find the directions for doing that! I have the bkapps.zip downloaded...am I installing it like an update.zip? Or is there some other way?

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes. Download bkapps.zip, rename to update.zip, and copy to the root of your sdcard. Reboot into recovery, select Install, allow install, then install update. <- Not the exact wording but you'll see it. Once it's done, reboot, open a terminal program and type:
    su
    bkapps -c

    Give it time to finish....

    Now you can wipe and flash SS, then run rstapps -c to restore all of your apps.

    Can someone please help me. I am running Kangerade 1.1. I downloaded bkapp.zip on phone. Renamed it to update.zip. Moved to /sdcard/. Restarted phone and booted into recovery. Selected the instal from update.zip option. Shows it installed correctly. Booted back up, went into terminal. Typed
    su
    /#bkapp -c
    And got the following error:SH:bkapp:not found

    I did delete the update file before running this command but didnt think i needed that after being installed.

    Also, first time booting into clockwork recovery. I know in SPrecovery you had to select the option allow install from zip then install. I didnt see that in clockwork. I simply selected install.

    Any help is appreciated.

    OK - run this:

    ls -l `which bkapps`

    then:

    echo $PATH

    ok. After typing in ls -l it gave my a large directory.

    I then typed in echo $PATH and it shows: /data/local/bin:/sbin:/system/sbin:/system/bin:/system/xbin
