I have backed up my mmssms.db file from my (screen broken) original OnePlus One. To do this backup, through ADB, I needed to be root to access the data partition.

I'm set to receive the new 6T (didn't like the size of the 7pro) in the mail today.

Using ADB is there a way to restore my SMS/MMS database file without rooting the new 6T? If not, that's fine, I'll unlock and root the phone. I purchased direct through OnePlus so I shouldn't have any T-Mobile issues (paying off and waiting 40 days before unlock code/token is given).

Thanks in advance!

I don't know if you could take a .db file from one device and install it on the another. However, what you could do is place the .db file on your new device and use an app like SqLite DB Reader and open it and view it.
