    Ok I want to transfer a backup thats on my LG Volt which is running android 4.4.2 (the highest version that phone supports) to a Samsung galaxy s5 which is running Android 6.0.1 would that work successfully without problems. Or would the phone you're restoring the backup too need to be using the same OS version as the phone that has the backup on it?

    If you are just trying to restore user apps and data, sure it will work. But anything system or rom related you should stay away from imo. Wouldn't want to brick your s5. If you are really determined on getting certain features that are non user from it than i'd advise asking some smart people over at xda.

    When you posted transfer "a backup" is that a particular app or are you referring to a nandroid backup?

    Well my phone is rooted but I dont do anything special with it so I dont have any roms on it or any system data that isnt stock with the normal androis version Os.. i really only use root to delete bloatware and link stuff to SD, as such Ill be using THIS guide to transfer stuff over.

    http://lifehacker.com/5843206/how-to-upgrade-to-a-new-android-phone-and-take-everything-with-you

    and It tells me at one point to "Backup all user apps + system data" so yes I will be trying to restore system data from a 4.4.2 backup to a 6.0.1 phone, because I want to bring my texts, contacts, etc etc with me. Or will just backup up user apps automatically bring all my texts, contacts, SD linked apps and app data with me and thus system data backup is not needed?

    There are plenty of smart people here who can help. ;)

    We have a monster thread for questions on Titanium here: http://androidforums.com/threads/app-support-titanium-backup.687733/

    And a pretty decent guide here: http://androidforums.com/threads/guide-titaniumbackup-tutorial.607141/

    @DuoMaxwell007 , all you want to backup in Titanium are User Apps. If you take any system data with you, it's most likely going to cause problems/instability.

    If you want to backup SMS, this is a better app for doing it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore&hl=en_GB .

    Also, your contacts should be backed up to your Google Account, you can check that here: https://contacts.google.com/u/0/preview/all. When you log in to your gmail account on your new phone, your contacts should sync down automatically.
