    I feel like I just overlooked something major and am seeking clarification (or help).

    I bought my Z30 a few days ago but had to surrender my Z10 in order to purchase it. Since they didn't have any Z30's in store I was stuck waiting for it to arrive via the mail.

    I backed up my Z10 (which was running the leaked 1055) via link and just figured that I could restore (ie transfer) my data to my Z30 using the file.

    I just plugged my Z30 in and there is no option to restore from a previous backup.

    It's slowly dawning on me that I might not be able to do this...am I correct in my newfound realization?

    And, if so, is there any way I can extrapolate the data from the existing backup? I'm mostly interested in pictures that were on the device.

    Thanks, all.

    You didn't happen to sync your pictures to Box or to your computer did you? If not then maybe of you install the 1055 leak on your Z30 then you should be able to restore. I don't think you can restore to a lower OS from what I understand.

    Sigh. I didn't - I naively assumed that the pics would just be part of the restore option.

    I definitely plan on upgrading the Z30 to the 1055 update...although I'm not confident it will work.

    Does anyone have any experience with this? And know if I can extrapulate data?

    Should be no problem. Just update the Z30 to 10.2.1.1055, then restore the backup that you made from the Z10

    Exactly what I did. Works well. Newer version backups can't be restored on an older OS version, so you got to do it.

    And know that your pictures/music/videos might be in your computer library too, if you synced them. I mostly used backups for applications data and such, not for media.

    same here. I did a restore to the Z30 as well. I did NOT do system settings, however...

    Update: you all were right. Once I installed the 1055 leak on my Z30 Link recognized the 1055 backup image created using my Z10 and allowed me to load it into my Z30.

    Yay! Thank you everyone.
