Migrating v3.0 to new phone - any tips or links?

Recommended Posts

Haven't been on this forum since I last migrated my Poweramp v2 with 10,000 songs, ratings, and playlists to a new phone 3 years ago which took an enormous amount of time and was very frustrating. I recall using playlist manager to get my playlists moved. Going to v3 I lost all of my 1-5 star ratings which were somehow reduced to FAVORITES or not, not exactly what I had hoped for but I have adjusted.

Hoping that v3 migrates far easier and that there are ways to preserve all of the tagging I have done.

1- Can anyone provide any updated info or a LINK on the easiest way to move from one phone to another? (Most of my songs are on a micro SD which I would like to either move to the new phone or copy to another SD Card and install)

2- Can anyone tell me if the FAVORITE info is maintained in the ID3 tags or is it hidden away only in a Poweramp proprietary database as before?

You can export Poweramp Settings and all the playlists (though, not tracks- this should be handled separately). The only information that will be lost now is ratings.

(And as it's not possible to reliable store ratings in the tracks, there is a planned solution for the future Poweramp builds to migrate ratings separately). Thanks!

#flyingdutchman and #maxmp; thank you for your responses. Will try and post results here.

One question comes up - in version 2.xx the ratings were maintained as 1-5 stars. v3.xx seems to maintain THUMBS UP/DOWN but not the STARS. Is that correct or is there a setting that would show the prior STAR based ratings?

That would be Settings > Look and Feel > Player UI > Rating Type

The ratings are still stored internally the same way as before. Whether you choose to display them as regular 0-5 stars, or thumbsup (5-stars) / thumbsdown (1 star) is up to you.
