    I installed 8.1 on my 8X but I just bought a new Lumia 925. How do I upgrade while still keeping my backed up 8.1 settings? I'm worried these settings will not be restored upon upgrading the new phone to 8.1.This is what I'm thinking but I'm not sure it'll work:1. Sign into MS Account on 925.2. Install 8.1 on the 925. Hope that it doesn't overwrite my backed up settings from the 8X.3. Factory Reset the 925 (which reinstalls 8.1, right?) so that when I set it up for the first time, it restores my settings.Has anyone dealt with this yet?

    If I'm not mistaken, only one phone per App Studio account can use the DP...don't quote me on this though. Unless you actually paid for a Developer's account, where I believe it can be up to 3 phones. I would check up on that, but I believe this is what I read a while back when I used the DP for GDR3.

    Also, I had to do an insurance claim for my L920 to get another L920, and I notice when I restore from a backup, I have 2 backups....one for my previous L920 and the current L920 I have.

    Hopefully this information will help.

    I have a developer account so I should be able to get the new phone on 8.1.

    Ah, fascinating. So you think I'll be able to:

    1. Sign into MS Account on 925.
    2. Install 8.1 on the 925.
    3. Factory Reset the 925 (which reinstalls 8.1, not 8.0, right?). Select to restore the backup from the 8X.


    ​Hopefully that is the case?

    I think so. Now don't quote me on this, but it should happen like that.
