Restore to a different XO

Comment from OLPC-NZ testing team:

Tried to restore the same journal file on another XO but it doesn't let you (deliberate we think)

We are interested in using Backup/Restore to migrate a child from one XO to another. This may happen because (for example):

  • the child's XO has broken and they have received a new one
  • the child is migrating to a new model XO (e.g. from an XO-1 to an XO-1.5)

This means that we want Restore to be able to restore to any XO.

This should work just fine. There's no code in Restore to check who or what has created the bundle. What exactly happens if you try? Please include the full error message and / or the log file if applicable.
