Restoring S905 to S905X And S805

  • Quick question.


    I would assume it's not possible but am I able to restore from one CPU type to another?? Using the LE backup and restore function. Will it work??


    Thanks.

  • These are different types of CPUs. Different hardware. No software is gong to change that. I'd like to upgrade my i3 to a i7 while we're at it...

    I've not had a lot of luck restoring to the same device.


    Some skins like Titan allow their settings to be backed up. You can export/import libraries.

    I'm talking about using the LE backup restore feature, not upgrading my device.

    I use it all the time to backup and restore to the same CPU.

    i think this is possible. all SoC u mentioned use 32Bit userspace apps with the same ARM build architecture.

  • I'll try it on a SD card install then. Thanks.

  • It worked perfectly. I backed up my S905X device and restored it to my S805 device without any issues at all.

  • audiodecoders, pvr addons, screensaver addons, visualization addons...


    Usually the ones that ship with Kodi not the third party ones
