    Hello, I am staying at a resort with terrible internet, and was wondering how to copy Baldurs Gate 2 to my brothers tablet so we can play multiplayer. I tryed to use an apk extractor, but the extracted file was only 13 Mb, when the actual game is 2.4 Gb. What is the best way to go about this? I need to do this without rooting.

    Thanks.

    You can't without root, you'd also need to link your gmail account (or the account the game was bought with) to the recipient device too or it would fail the license check when you launched it.

    Helium Backup might be able to do it, but you'd need to connect both devices to a PC for that to work.

    Regardless of what you try, you'd need to link both devices to the gmail account you used to purchase the game.

    I can use Helium Backup through PC? I already have the same account linked in both devices. I can't do it without root because I'm returning one of these devices after this vacation.

    Helium uses something called ADB Backup and it needs a PC to be able to activate that (unless you're rooted). It doesn't work with all devices and apps though. It works better if you're rooted, but it's one of the few backup apps that does a half decent job without root.

    If you want to edit, there's an edit button on the bottom left of your post, just hit that to bring up the edit box.
