Though you did not (yet) confirm both devices are rooted, this solution might be of interest for those where they are: Following up to our adoptable-storage tag-wiki, you will find a link to How to decrypt adopted storage? Based on that, the following approach seems feasible: From the original device, extract the encryption key file located in /data/misc/...

The solution is as simple as a few (s)hell commands. Requires root and BusyBox. Open a terminal or an adb shell and type su sed -i 's/installer="[A-Za-z0-9._-]*"/installer="com.android.vending"/g' /data/system/packages.xml If the command prompt tells you sed: not found, install BusyBox correctly and prepend busybox before sed. Be aware that this is a ...

Helium has never been, nor ever will be, compatible with any device running anything less than Android 4.0 First things first: What you want cannot be achieved on not-rooted devices running a lower version of Android. Only with ICS (4.0), permissions of the ADB daemon have been alleviated to enable this (see: Full Backup of non-rooted devices). For ...

Unfortunately no, there's no way to migrate this between devices unless you're using the Google Now Launcher on the old phone, and the new phone ships with it as its default. It's designed to migrate layout, but the stock launcher that Motorola uses doesn't have this functionality.

Since Chrome 32, Google started removing the 300ms to allow the double tap to zoom in or out for mobile sites. For many years, mobile browsers applied a 300-350ms delay between touchend and click while they waited to see if this was going to be a double-tap or not, since double-tap was a gesture to zoom into text. Ever since the first release of Chrome for ...

To manage the system and not give it root access, you neex to use a custom recovery. A custom recovery will allow you to backup your DATA & SYSTEM Partitions so thst you can restore everything easily and safely.

After a few more failures where I tried exporting contacts as VCF and importing into my Google account (imported 9 out of 209 - no message to indicate why the remaining 200 didn't import) and trying to import the VCF direct onto the phone (failed completely with a message indicating the format was invalid) I eventually tried the Smart Switch app again, this ...

This first method is definitely tiresome but avoids the need of root access. You need to find your app in Play Store and tap the update button. Once you update through Play Store, the system would treat that app as if installed from Play Store originally. Definitely, if you have a long list of apps, you would get tired. Moreover, if there is no update ...

Found the solution in the thing called „internet“: (in the following it is assumed, that all backups are stored to a SD card). TWRP stores backups with a „serial number“ of the phone. i.e. when looking into a SD card, there is a folder called TWRP/BACKUPS. Inside this there are subfolders named after a unique ID for every phone. E.g. CC48TY402141 or ...

Two possible reasons From Nexus help When you set up your phone, you can quickly import Google Accounts, backed-up apps, and data from your current Android device to your new Nexus phone by using Tap & Go.

Tag wiki of the adoptable-storage which you used is a good start point : When you adopted the external SD card, it is encrypted with a key that is unique - hardware key that is specific to your device ( not common to model). This means you cannot read the SD card on another device, even if same model.According to the [Android documentation][1] : .. Keys ...

You can try using Helium backup on the older phone in order to make copies of your apps and their settings. These can then be migrated to the new phone through the Helium backup interface. Alternatively, you could take an ADB backup of your old phone and restore it to your new phone. All this is on the assumption that you don't have root?

I don't know if there is an automated way. So I take an screenshot of my old device and manually organize the new following pictures.
