現在HTCの欲求を持っており、HTC EVO 3Dを購入します。
I'm planning to buy a new Android phone and I'd like to be able to transfer the progress I have made at several games to the new device, so I won't have to play all the levels again from scratch.
I currently have an HTC Desire and will buy an HTC Evo 3D.
There's probably no simple/general solution to this.
But I was wondering if anyone did something similar and could provide some advice (e.g. where to look for files that might hold game progress information).
There are two places you should look for, the external memory (SD card or a directory that is used for similar purpose) and the internal memory (the
/data/data directory). You may need to be rooted to access the latter.
In the best case scenario, the game saves all your progresses in the cloud, then you just need to reenter your login and it's all restored. This is typically only the case for online games.
Some games may provide a menu to export the save data or an external app to do so, if they exist then you should preferably use them.
If you are on Android 4.0 or up, you can use the
adb backup resp.
adb restore command even without rooting your device. The syntax is:
adb backup [-f <file>] [-apk|-noapk] [-shared|-noshared] [-all] [-system|nosystem] [<packages...>]
To do a full backup, this would e.g. mean
adb backup xe2x80x93apk xe2x80x93shared xe2x80x93all xe2x80x93f /backup/mybackup.ab (resp.
adb restore /backup/mybackup.ab to restore the backup on the new device). But keep in mind this would mean "all-or-nothing" -- you cannot restore single apps this way. So you rather might want to include the package names of the apps to transfer. To find those, e.g. look up the apps on Google Play -- you'll find the package names in the URL (
id=<package_name>). Your backup command then would look like:
adb backup xe2x80x93apk xe2x80x93shared xe2x80x93f /backup/mybackup.ab com.foobar.app1 org.foobar.app2 net.foobar.app3
Restore stays the same, as
adb restore always restores everything from the backup file (no selection of parts available here).
For a list of available ADB commands, see e.g. here.
You might also look into an app like Titanium Backup or MyBackup Pro and choose to save user apps + data and then restore to your new phone.
I recently transferred game progress using my computer from an LG phone to a Droid Maxx. I will use Fallout Shelter as my example because the website said game progress/purchases could not be transferred.
com.bethsoft.falloutshelterfile on the Droid Maxx I replaced it with the copy I put on my computer.
I loaded up the game and all of my progress and purchases had been transferred to the Droid. This works for games, photos, and music. I do not know if this works with iPhones.
Honestly, if you don't want to root you're screwed and even then it rarely works properly. You can manually backup some of your games or use non root backup apps and the few that use cloud are a blessing but most game progress just won't backup and is lost in the process due to lack of root access. Backup apps work for about 30-40% of games but isn't worth violating your warranty by rooting imo. If you want to violate your warranty on your new device go right ahead but don't say I didn't warn you. If your phone decides to brick on you one day you lost your money.
if u use dropbox,astro file manager app and apk. extractor app u can move games and all saved data to your new device without root..just open astro..hit top left button..then hit location...hit dropbox and set up acct..then find game files/ folders in astro and longpress, copy files to new dropbox acct.. download apk. extracter and open it..find your game and hit extract...go back into astro and find the extracted file..copy that file to dropbox...go on new device and open astro..go into dropbox and copy files to new device in the same location they came from on old device..finally copy the extracted apk file to sd..it will ask if u want to install..hit yes and enjoy...note* u need to allow outside apps by goin in settings then apps..check the box that allows outside apps
You should check out Helium. I think it works even without root access.
I did it with minecraft, you just have to find your game progress in your old phone storage (I recomand you to do this with file menager), if you can't find it look for it on google for specific game (find on google where is the progress for that game stored). Then install wifi file transfer from google play on old phone so you can acess your old phone from your new phone. Then download data progress on your new phone. And then just put downloaded data on place where is the game progress on new phone.
