    Greetings. Been reading the forum for a couple years and finally have a question that I can't find the answer to. I hope this makes sense.

    I have a Galaxy Note 2 - 16Gb, Sprint SPH-L900, Android 4.4.2, that is rooted stock with CWM Recovery. I have a second Note 2 on the way and would like to be able to root the new phone, flash CWM Recovery, copy my CWM backup from the original phone to the new one, flash the backup in CWM. The idea is to get everything set up on the new phone (apps, settings configurations, etc.) with a bare minimum of effort then call my carrier to get it activated. If it matters, I do have several apps on the old phone that do require root including xposed and a few xposed modules that I use.

    Is this doable without causing problems on the new phone? Are there any other steps that I should take in addition to flashing the backup from the old phone? Of course I'll clear cache & etc on both before doing this.

    BTW: The phone that is coming is a 64Gb, Sprint SPH-L900, Android version unknown until I get the phone. The ESN has been verified as clean by my carrier and they checked and will activate it.

    Answered My own question.

    The other phone arrived today and I flashed the backup from the first phone and it went perfectly.
