What's the best way to move my saved connections to a new device?

I've moved to new devices a couple times and haven't figured it out...

I'd like to know if it's possible. I hour ConnectBot is backed up with other android OS items, but know that's not the case from experience.

I'm a fan of Titanium Backup, which works well if your device has an SD
card or some such and are rooted. I believe you can also push backups to
data store services like Dropbox too. If you're rooted I believe this is
more of a pain. It would be a nice feature to have ConnectBox export its
connections list config to a single file to move around.

These are the steps to do a backup and restore using the Android backup
service:

I hope this helps!

I don't remember the last time there was an update to ConnectBot, so I
wonder if it's actively being developed any more. I know there are
various forks, but the ones I've tried are too foreign and I just need
something that works and will use shared keys easily and not as an
annoying afterthought, which ConnectBot may do, but that annoyance
matches the annoyance that is my feeble brain.
