Move setup from RPi3 and Kodi 18 to Rpi4 with Kodi 19.1

Hello. I currently run OSMC (nov 2020 with Kodi 18) on a RPi3, all running well. I have purchased a RPi4 and would like to move on to OSMC Aug 2021 / Kodi 19.1. I would like to preserve my library (watched / played status).
I’d just like to double check my intended upgrade process:

  1. Make a fresh install of the latest OSMC on the RPi4.
  2. On the RPi3, through SSH run systemctl stop mediacenter
  3. Copy my /home/osmc/.kodi from the old RPi3 to the new RPi4
  4. Start the new RPi4, and all I would have to do is check for missing / removed addons.

Anything I am missing here?

Well Kodi would need to migrate your databases to the new schema but that should happen automatically

Thanks. Should the first step be to upgrade the current RPi3 to Kodi 19.1, using OSMC’s automatic update process?

Well your choice but that might be the better approach
