Will backups made on a classic jolla phone device become transferable onto a new jolla phone C device – and vice versa ?

That’d be very helpful to have / know indeed …

I'd love that feature - would make the transfer much much easier

If they don't have this already available, they definetly should try to make one before the release.

Since backups are done via git, we probably will be able to sync via the terminal / ssh, like I have done a few times with my pc before doing a full reset and restoring the backup via git again.

As I have tried now the backups are compatibile, so just move the tar.gz file to the respective folder and the data can be restored to a different device.

Example: I have two folders in my Dropbox called Jolla and Jolla C. So I take the newest tar.gz from the Jolla folder and just move it to the Jolla C folder, and it can be recovered via Settings now.
