Restore Freedombox from Backup

Is it possible to set up a Freedombox 64-bit x86 (amd64) with backup files from an A20 OLinuXino LIME system?

Yes, it should be possible.

If you have disabled automatic updates on the older FreedomBox, it is better to upgrade the system fully and then take a backup, so that the data will be compatible with the latest versions of the software on the new system. Please note that backups also contain configuration files, not just data, so you wouldn’t want your newly installed applications running with outdated configuration files.
