Will a backup from an Xperia X (F5121) to a Dual SIM Xperia X (F5122) device be imported without problems? Anyone successfully done that?

What kind of backup? dd, tar, Jolla backup from Settings?

@lakutalo A Jolla backup, yes.

Effectively, cloning the content without the need to sync or search for data, accounts, contacts, notes, messages, history of calls and all about and having to spend time to import.

I transfert my backup done on Aqua Fish to F5122 without any problem. I don't know why you would have any problem to do that. :)

Even MMS images?

Jolla Backup doesn't backup MMS images.

Maybe if you copy MMS images from old device to new one it will work. MMS images are stored in /home/nemo/Pictures/MMS.

@jiit can you tell us if will it work?

Yes I didn't check MMS. One more thing wich is not kept is the SIM where you receive SMS. (SIM1/SIM2) This information was lost as well during backup.

For your information, most elements seem to be transferred. Messages and phone history for example. Contacts, however, are not transferred!
