Is it possible to restore via /boot partition?

I'm upgrading some controllers to 6.1 via re-flashing since I don't have wifi adapters that support AP mode.

Would it be possible for FPP to look for a fpp-backup.json file in the /boot partition and if it is there run a restore on boot? That would let us drop a backup JSON into the FAT32 formatted /boot directory from a PC or Mac and quickly upgrade controllers via re-flashing.


Not a backup json at this point, but you can create a /boot/fpp directory and anything in there will be copied to /home/fpp/media on boot.  Thus, you can create config files in /boot/fpp/config that are copied over.
