Helium back up doesn't seem to work for xiaomi at all.

Anyone ever did restore helium back up to xiaomi?

What are the other alternatives? Google play restore doesn't seem to work either.

Note: I do NOT need to back up the APK. What I mainly want is to back up content of chat applications like wechat, whatsapp, etc.


Yes there is an app called Mi Mover which helps to transfer data from one Android Phone to a Mi phone. Users can refer Xiaomiadvices for download links and tutorial on how to transfer data using Mi Mover app.


Try Super Backup. It works on both other Android mobiles as well as Xiaomi mobiles.

This link will help you to install google play store and other apps.

If installed google apps not working then refer this link
