Default [Q] TWRP Backup from T-Mobile M919 to AT&T I337?

Swapping from T-mobile to AT&T, couldn't unlock the T-Mobile phone to get it working on AT&T. Can I make a TWRP backup of CM11M6 install on the M919 and restore it to the I337?

You probably can't get twrp on the i337. Any firmware newer than mdl and it won't work

Thanks! Probably better to install fresh and restore what I can from Titanium Backup anyways. I got the phone used and it looks like the previous owner installed SafeStrap, I'd never heard of it before but I think I can see the usefulness of it... Anyhow, SafeStrap appears to use TWRP.

Safestrap is a recovery based on twrp. Find out your firmware version. It'll determine what you can do with the phone. Sounds like it's already rooted with safestrap so you don't have to go through that headache. You'll only be able to flash touch wiz based roms. Look in the general forum for info based on your firmware version
