Hi,

I have a mi10t lite 5G and a Poco X3 NFC

My Poco X3 NFC bootloader has been unlocked and TWRP installed.

My mi10t lite 5G, has not been unlocked. It's brand new on Android 10, MIUI version 12.0.2 (I have to option to update it)

What I wanted to ask is, if I install all the apps I require on my mi10t lite 5G from the playstore and some side loaded apps e.g tubemate, bsplayer, etc is it possible to transfer all of this data (including any settings for the apps/system) on another Xaiomi phone aka the Poco X3 NFC?

I'm just worried as I know if I go down the route of unlocking my mi10t lite 5G i will have to wipe it by default anyway which means I will lose everything.

If so, how can I create a backup just in case I need to wipe the mi10t lite 5G or Poco and want to restore the apps/settings back on the devices please?

Do I need to log in to my Mi Account for the mi10t lite 5G and then start installing apps, adjusting settings etc and then do a cloud backup or something?

Thanks very much.

Yes, cloud backup (google) is the only true solution. Using Helium it might be possible to backup some apps, but that depends on the apps. System settings to move for another device? May some google parts but Device specific prob. none.
Everything else simply does not rly work on A10+ or requires root. Imo it would be worth to wait for unlock as you have far more options (not just on backup).

If your phones using the same OS (in this case MIUI 12), so most likely you can backup whole apps and it's data and restore it across the phone. I did it in LineageOS 10 several times.
But, if you restore it to the different OS version (MIUI 12 to MIUI 11), the chance to let you restore the same data would be lower. And if you restore it to the different base OS (MIUI to Lineage), the chance to let you restore the installed app would be lowest.

I just want to say the the possibility is there, but you need to try and did it to see if it meet with your needs or not :)

Happy trying!

Alright just to update

Poco X3 is rooted:

Need to backup this for apps+data+settings if possible best software for this? I've heard titanium backup as my device is rooted but I'm sure titanium is way old and outdated now.

I looking to put my Poco on Lineage OS as I love did this on my Samsung s8 yesterday as love the way it looks/features
