I've been trying to restore a backup from my Pixel 4a to a 7 Pro as my new successor phone for countless times now to no avail. Apart from the local data backup, which I perform manually if necessary, I would at least like to transfer the apps with history and data. On the Pixel 4a backup I get 32 of 69 apps displayed as successfully backed up (green check mark). Not for the rest, for whatever reason? When I then install the backup on the 7 Pro, no app is installed at all. An orange exclamation mark is displayed for all apps with the note that I can try to install them manually, but how can this be done without ever having installed an App Store in this step?
I don't know what else I can do, any tips? Are there any general compatibility issues between the models backups from 4a to 7 Pro?
When I understand correctly, there is no alternative to Seedvault?
Thanks for your suggestions
