Default [Q] Mix of Helium & Titanium Backup Pro

Hi everyone,

My wife's new phone is a Galaxy S5, and because root requires a custom recovery (the Droid4 was just a root exploit) I am hesitant to mess with it, but wish to move her app data over.

Edit: Maybe that's not true? Source

Unfortunately, Helium doesn't work with Motorola Devices, but the D4 is rooted. If I run a backup using Titanium Backup Pro, is there a way to take its output and feed it into Helium on the S5?
Devices:
  • HTC Rezound (rooted 4.0.3, TWRP recovery)
  • Samsung Galaxy S5 (Towelroot)
  • Asus Transformer (stock B70), with B90 dock

You can use towelroot to root ur wife her S5, the knox will stay at 0x0, so it will be helpfull not to break ur void and when done u can unroot

Thanks, that ended up being the easiest root ever! Files backed up, the S5 is an awesome phone so far. I have a Dev Edition on backorder for myself.
