Yes, I made a conversion one month ago from phpBB 3.0.14 to Kunena 5.0.13. I am very pleased with the result. The problem is if many members dont have a single post because then they get deleted. I had 2700 members but after the conversion I had 1600 left. You can modify the script for this I know but I have not tested this option myself but it might work. The fix is here message 954:
And after conversion Joomla users will get another userid. Might be an disadvantage. I made a more labourious conversion and changed userid for all posts in kunena_messages to Joomla userid. This way I got a perfect conversion, but it took a lot of work. Here you find a tutorial I worked after.

The present conversion script is perfect if userid of Joomla and phpBB 3 is identical and if all members have posts.


Edit: I made a test conversion for another person with phpBB 3.1 and it seemed to work.
