First of all I’m well aware of the fact that a dd dump and restore is not at all supported by Jolla.
I’ve successfully managed to backup the LVM of my XA2 running Sailfish using dd.
I also managed to do a successful restore.
My question is then does the data on the LVM partition contain any device specific or could I if I got a new XA2 (excact same model) and flashed it with SailfishOS restore the dd dump and make it work?
I’m aware because a friend of mine has a faulty XA2 which need to be replaced.
I’m aware of the SafishOS license issue which need to be addressed by writing to helpdesk.
