Unfortunately, I do not have an older file, which I realize now it would have been brilliant to keep. I actually used an older file first, then decided to delete it an generate a new one because of the error. I assumed the files were good, and the issue was with the app updating the settings.
I have had Poweramp for years and I have performed this action before between devices successfully. When I try to import settings from another device, I place the file last.Poweramp-settings in the com.maxmpz.audioplayer folder and then I try to import through Poweramp settings and I get this message: "Failed to export settings: Failed to parse settings" It doesn't even make sense because I'm trying to import and message says export. Device: Motorola Moto G 4G LTE XT1045 unlocked retail Android: lollipop 5.1 stock rom. Not rooted Poweramp: 2.0.10-build-581-uni (Full Version) I have searched the knowledge base and the forum for "import settings" and apparently no one else has seen this. Submitted a bug through Google docs.
