Recover data from rooted 4.4 to unrooted 5.x device
« on: January 13, 2016, 16:54:23 »
Hi!

My Sony Z1 compact was stolen... >:( The phone was rooted, Android 4.4.
Quite a short time before it was stolen I inserted a new SD-card, and kept the old one as a backup. As far as I can remember I installed Locus on the SD-Card completely.

I now have ordered a Z3c (Android 5.x). If possible I try to avoid a root of the device. Therefore I consider a "splitted Installation" where the app is located on the internal Memory and maps on the sd-card.

Question: Do I have any Chance to recover my track recordings from the old sd-card? I have quite a lot of records which I don't want to loose... Which way should I choose?

Thanks for your help,
shushuk

Hi,
shortest way:
install Locus internally and copy all data from the old ExtSDCard from /Locus/data/database to (internal)sdcard/Locus/data/database.
This should bring all your tracks and points back.
If you want to change storage places for maps, srtm-files and others please check manual regarding Android 5.x

hth,
Christian

With Android 6.0 Marshmallow ante portas: Is there anything to be considered in this regard?

Thanks for showing me the procedure... I will try that.
