    i have final fantasy 3 and chaos rings save data on my old phone and i do not want to start over with these games.

    in what directory would my save data be located on the Lg motion(my old phone)?

    what would be the method of transfer?

    EDIT: I realise what I'm asking is in the wrong section. Could a mod move this to the lg motion all things root forum?

    Best way to do it is with titanium back up, back them up, and copy the save folder to you're PC. then move it to the other phone. on the other phone where u should have titanium back installed locate the back up folder restore..works for me every time..

    copying the obb files over doesnt work. its not where the save file is stored.

    here's what DID work. you dont need titanium backup but that may work easier, i dont know. i used romtoolbox for this. obviously you have to be rooted to even get to this file

    the actual save data file is in data/data/com."app.name"/files

    i archived the save file and moved it to the internal SDcard on my phone

    in order to get the file off my phone onto my computer i emailed the file to myself and downloaded it onto my computer from there(it wouldnt give me the option to email the file until i moved it to my internal SDcard for whatever reason)

    once the file was extracted on my computer, i put it in the android folder of the phone i was transferring the file to.

    from there i moved the file to data/data/com."app.name"/files


    im sure there's a much easier way to do this but this is what worked for me.

    i just needed to find out where the actual save file was. once i got that it was all about how i was gonna move it. I'm sure there's a much simpler process. i just dont know about it.
