Default Xperia Z TWRP backups

Hi, just wondering, if there is anyone who is able to answer? (as i have a bricked Xperia Z motherboard) if its possible to use a backup from my bricked Xperia Z on my new Xperia Z ?
I do understand that i cannot restore the TA partition, (as in TWRP it has the option on which partitions to restore) as it will end up bricked, any other partitions not to restore ?? just wondering if i can restore the actual backup onto my new Xperia Z in anyway because i had BeanStalk rom all setup great before it went.
Any help is appreciated.

As long as you don't restore TA partition, you'll be safe on restore remaining ones, but expect some qwirks an so on

So definitely safe to restore all partitions apart from TA ?

KERNEL IMAGE - SAFE ?
TRIM AREA - UNSAFE ?
SYSTEM - SAFE ?
CACHE - SAFE ? (NO REASON FOR THIS I GUESS?)
DATA - SAFE ?

Thanks for the input.....

Only backup data partition if u just want your personal stuff.

There is no reason to restore system or kennel cus ur phones are same. Just go flash a new one
