Default [Q] Easiest way to "clone" two HTC Ones?

Hi all, I'm switching from Verizon to T-Mobile. After hours of searching, bricking, then recovering my HTC One (don't try flashing a T-Mobile radio to a VZW phone...) I've come to the conclusion I need to buy a T-Mobile HTC One.

I have my device set up the way I like it, with custom launcher, the way things are arranged, etc. Is there an easy way to clone my Verizon One to the T-Mobile One I eventually buy? Without having to reinstall everything and reconfigure all the settings? Thanks.

Use titanium backup to make a backup of all your personal apps and data (do not backup system apps or vzw apps). Then, copy your backup folder on your sd card from titanium backup to your pc. Once you get your t-mo one rooted. Install titanium backup and move your previous backup to the t-mo one. If you have titanium paid you can actually store your backup to a cloud and then download that backup to your new device. Hope that helps. That's how I've been doing things for years. I had a nexus 7 I setup the same way.

Might want to look into the built in htc backup and restore feature built into the one.

That may be how I try doing it. Any ideas on how to transfer a few gigs of music and movies between the two? Without an SD card, I can't think of a way to do it faster than transferring it all to a cloud or computer.

That is probably your only option. You might even use your pc to put all your music and data into a zip. I have had trouble in the past transferring that much off of the phone not zipped up.

You could also use an app called Nandroid Manager https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...3t1c.bkrestore. It allows you to restore apps and their data from a nandroid backup, along with many other things.

Also just an fyi there is another cool app called Online Nandroid Backup https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...3t1c.onnandbup, which allows you to do a nandroid backup while still booted to the os. No need to boot to recovery. The only reason i mention it is that the two apps kind of go together and link to each other from within the apps.
