Default [Q] NANDROID Backup

I'm somewhat of a N00B and I was just wondering if I did a NANDROID backup using TWRP on my current N5 then got a replacement would I be able just to restore the NANDROID backup on the new device without any issues? I would think I'd be able to, but I just want to be sure.

I didn't know you could do that.. I've never tried it before... Thought each back up was also phone specific..

It's specific to a phone type. He's going from one n5 to another. If you had say an s2 and you wanted to put a nandroid from an n5 on it, that without be a problem.

Makes sense.. By phone specific, I just meant exact same device.. Not just same model. Thanks!

The nandroid does have personal information on it so I wouldn't recommend sending one to a friend or stranger

BE CAREFUL!
If you restore your EFS to your new phone (which I just did), you're screwed.
Like, badly screwed.

You're right. But most nandroids only backup system, data and boot. You don't want the efs partition if your going to put it on a different phone.


Edit, leblvin, flash the factory image through fastboot and you should be ok.

I did that, but somehow me IMEI is still 0.
I'm pretty desperate at the moment, I hope I'll find something
