    Can i buy a Raspberry Pi 3, and then use my RP2 SD card in it? I’m running dual-boot RetroPie 3.5 and OpenELEC 6.0.1

    Side note: I’ve overclocked the RP2. Will this config.txt interfere with RP3 when I swap the SD card over to RP3? If so, how can I make a smooth transition?

    I believe not because the kernel needs to be updated.

    Ok I see. Do you have any advice on how I can backup my whole Pie settings and roms? Is it just to copy the /home/pi folder and paste it on to RP3 once I have installed Retropie on RP3?
