New Device ID after Factory Reset

Post by alan.whymant » Wed Jun 12, 2019 4:33 pm

I did a factory reset on my Karoo to address some slow connectivity issues I was having. After the reset, it was treated as a new device by Dropbox, Amazon app store, etc, which meant none of my apps or files showed up. This is manageable for Dropbox by removing the "old" device from the list of registered devices, and signing in on the "new" device. But it is potentially costly for the app store as any paid apps disappear.

Anyone found a way around this?

Thanks.
