  1. Restoring rootful backups on rootless and vice versa is NOT supported
  2. Moving between jailbreaks with different bootstraps (e.g., Unc0ver and Taurine) is supported via STANDARD backups
  3. Developer backups (denoted by the “u” in the backup’s filename) can ONLY be restored from on jailbreaks using the SAME bootstrap (e.g., Elucubratus or Procursus) that the backup was made on
    • *Please note that these backups are meant to be used ONLY by those who understand exactly what they’re doing
  4. Neither apt sources nor tweak preferences are backed up
    • Note that neither are touched by restore rootfs
  5. Backups can be used on devices other than the one they were made on
