    Default Backup question

    Has anyone tried restoring a nandroid backup to a different phone than it was made with? Will it work?
    assuming I wipe everything on the receiving phone

    On a different Optimus V with the same hardware configuration? Maybe.

    On a different phone? Good luck / enjoy the brick.

    I have successfully restored a nandroid from my zv5 to a different zv5 v. I once restored a zv4 stock nand to a zv5 phone and it worked but obviously the screen didn't work. Screen cast was really handy around that time last year.

    That should work if there aren't any hardware difference (which sometimes happens). Let us know how it turns out.
