Default How To: Copy Angry Birds from 1 device to other without rooting for FREE!

I did a search when I got my new Evo 4G and all I found was people saying it wasn't possible and the ones that said it was possible said you had to be rooted. After a little more digging and some trial and error I figured out a way to backup all THREE versions of Angry Birds and then move all progress (including golden eggs) to a new and UNROOTED device for FREE! Here's how I did it. Hope this helps others.

There are free apps in the market that will allow you to backup and move your progress to another device w/o rooting. I wanted to reply because I went through the same thing on my new device and I had three devices actually. I had Angry Birds on my Droid 1 (rooted), Angry Birds Seasons on my tablet (not rooted) and finally Angry Birds Rio on my new Evo 4G which wasn't rooted. If you search the market you will find these three apps (Devs listed on right) to be the best as they backup not only progress but golden eggs and what not and are all free:

angrybirdsbackup - ANTBEE
angrybirdsbackup (seasons) - ANTBEE
Rio backup - Whitney Powell

The first two are from the same dev and the third seems to be about the same thing from a different dev. It would be nice if the same dev offered one for all three games or, even better, if that dev would COMBINE them all into a single app *hint hint* that generated separate folders for each game the end users chooses to back up.

Here we go:
1) Install whichever you need on both devices.
2) Complete ONE level on the new device (do NOT skip this step or you won't be able to complete the process successfully) and then create a backup to your device using the app.
3) Install the same app on the old device and create a backup for the same game on the old device. Now you have backups of current progress of the same game on both devices and you need to get the old to the new.
4) Use a file explorer (I like ES File Explorer best out of all of them but some prefer Astro... either will work for this DIY) to locate the folder that was created on the new device which will be named the same as the backup app. Within that folder you will find two files which I think are .bkp or something similar. One is scores and one is something else. You want to delete those two files from the new phone and then copy the same two files from the old phone and place them in the same location on the new phone.
5) Back out, launch the backup app that you installed and select restore.

Done.

You can verify by launching Angry birds to see your progress is all stored on the new device. Making a backup of your Angry Birds games every once in a while and then copying those backups to a PC or external storage device isn't a bad idea if you're serious about Angry Birds.

I see this question asked often but rarely see an answer nor have I seen a step by step on how to complete it even if you're able to stumble upon one of these apps since they don't include instructions.

Who are the developers for the apps you listed because when I searched for those apps I got a few results. I'm actually just curious about the Rio backup one I found the other ones.

The one I used is by Whitney Powell. I will edit the post to reflect the dev's.

I have all three from Whitney. I had to pay a buck for one or two of them, but I like hers because of the backing up to website feature. But I just had to have my stupid Epic reset today and now I can't find them in the market. Still have them on my nook color though, so guess I need to figure out how to transfer an app from one device to another if such a thing is possible. I'm still pretty much a newb...

Default Transfer of Angry Birds Data

Hi All,

I realise this thread is quite old now, however i just wanted to share my experience.

I downloaded an app called Angry Birds Backup by Sergio Patricio which was also free.

This app does backup ALL Angry Birds versions and seemed to work first time for me

This is what I did:

1) Downloaded the App on my old phone (HTC Desire).

2) Launched App and selected to backup all versions. I actually took the tick out of the last one (Angry Birds Space) as I don't have that one, and to be honest, had never heard of it. The App will tell you anyway if you don't have it, so that you can go back and remove the tick.

3) Downloaded the App on my new phone (HTC Sensation)

4) Played the first level on each of the versions to register a score.

5) Backed Up the games on the new phone (to create the same Backup folder)

6) Connected both phones to my PC via USB on Disk Drive mode

7) Copied (and replaced) the files from the angry_birds_backup folder on the old phone to the same location on the new phone. The files are created as LUA files.

8) Disconnected my new phone from my PC

9) Launched the App on my new phone and selected the restore ensuring the ticks were in the same 3 versions.

All done!

It only took seconds, and i suppose my only bad point (I am harsh! lol) was that there was no confirmation and I like to know that things have completed successfully!

However... I loaded up Angry Birds and all of my scores were back including the golden eggs.

I preferred this, as the other methods that I had seen seemed a bit confusing for me, so I was impressed when i came across this App.

Hope this helps other people too.

Andrew
