Does anyone know, if I create a TWRP backup, can I restore it to a different Nexus 5? Both phones have been unlocked, rooted and with custom recovery installed in exactly the same way.

Just got a replacement phone, and would rather not have to spend the time to set it all up to my liking again!

Thanks

Yes you can. But DO NOT backup and restore the efs partition. That will make your new device useless. Only backup and restore system and data. That's twrp's default backup.

Oh... just checked and in TWRP, System, Data and Boot are ticked by default. Should I untick Boot as well then?

Boot's ok, especially if you have a custom kernel

It should be fine, it's the kernel.

ANYTHING BUT EFS.
