Transfer to new nexus
« on: December 20, 2012, 09:28:53 PM »
Hi all. I have just bought a 32gb N7 to replace my 16gb N7. I have my 16gb set up how I like it, apps grouped in folders, apps on certain pages etc. Is there an easy way to transfer everything to my 32gb?? I'd love to be able to hit a magic button and have my 32gb set up just like my 16gb without spending hours doing so.

Thanks for any suggestions.

If you're rooted, you can probably do a Nandroid backup of the old N7, and a restore to the new one. I don't know if it's possible on uprooted devices.

I'm not the lowest of the low, but I am the slowest of the slow. 49.6 mpg avg for 38k miles in non-hybrid Scion xB

If what bird suggested isn't possible, Maybe an app like Airdroid might work.

If you are rooted Titanium Backup would be an option and if not the Root Toolkits by Skip or WugFresh allow you to make a backup to your PC without rooting. Although I would not recommend either of these if you are not an experienced Android user.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll go check them out. Not rooted so it seems my options will be limited.

I replaced my 8GB with a new 32GB, almost all apps loaded from google account, but had to arrange things to the way they were on my 8GB.
