I don't know if this will work as it is untried.
I copied the entire CD contents that came in the Pearl box on to the MicroSD chip, in a folder I called BBDisk. It's takes 116MB. I also put a copy of my device backup file on to the disk.
I thought that if I am ever away from home and need to install the backup, that I could find a PC to use, install DM and then perform a restore with the file on the chip.
I also copied the files in the event I need to use someone's PC to tether the Pearl as a modem, I would have all the files with me [including the instructions on how to set up the Pearl as a modem].
Like I said, I have not tried any of the above, but seems it might work.
