Question about backup and restore.

I am having a problem with the charger port on my EVO. It is rooted and running AlterROM Redux v1.0.2. I have a second EVO that my wife used, she upgraded to a Gallaxy S3. If I root her phone can I just use ROM Manager to backup my phone and then restore it to her phone?

Pics show screen shots from both phones.

First 2 are my phone. 2nd 2 are wifes

I dont believe that would work,over data cables from one phone to another,especially using a totally different phone.

Let me clarify.

My phone is a EVO 4g

Her phone (should of said old phone) is the EVO 4g

I would backup to a SD card. Swap card to other phone and then restore.

So both phones are the EVO 4g and I would be backing up and restoring from a SD card.


Was 2 am when wrote original post. Didn't proof read very well.

I've heard some people say it would work, and I've heard some people say it wouldn't work. You could always root and make a backup of the stock ROM, and then give it a try. That way you have a backup to restore if it fails. But the decision to try is ultimately up to you.

If you decide to try it post back, I'm curious to get a definitive answer on this subject.
