    Hey everyone. Just got a new OG droid in the mail from asurion, my keys were peeling up and falling off randomly. I was wondering if theres an easy way to transfer EVERYTHING, root, miui, apps, blah blah, to the new droid or if Im gonna have to backup everything, move the sd over and then root the new one and go from there. Thanks for any help.

    The root will not transfer your apps are associated with your google account so they will restore as well as your email and contacts

    I rooted over a year ago and it was MUCH easier. What guide/process are you using?

    if you flashed miui and swapped sd cards wouldn't the miui backup be recognized? that's the first thing I'd try after rooting
