Save your Angry Birds Game Data – never lose your level again


This isn’t the first time someone has come up with a way to save your Angry Birds game data, as we’ve shown here, but it is another pea in the pod regardless, and people love to have options. That said, there are really only a couple of files that need to be backed up, so if you have your device rooted (it must be rooted) and you have a rooted file explorer like ES File Explorer, you should have no trouble with these backups.

  • First of all, use root explorer to go to
  • /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirds (use corresponding names for seasons and rio)/files
  • Copy these two files:
  • highscores.lua
  • settings.lua
  • Now you can go to same location on the target device and paste them; however, make sure you rename the original files first.
  • This step is the most important: fix the permission. Make sure both files have three read and write, and NO EXECUTE (X) because it will cause reboot when you run the game!!!
  • Done.

There are many other methods, like Titanium Backup for example, that many are satisfied with, however, there have been users who’ve reported tb not working, and thus having to start over in Angry Birds after flashing a new ROM….that sucks! So, save yourself hundreds of hours of gameplay and stress by using the method above. Thanks mingkee!

    Can this formula be used for backing up in the Windows or Chrome version too or only for mobiles???

    Wow, that’s a great tutorial for Angry Birds fans. Thank you.

    I transferred my saved game data to a new computer by copying this file: http_chrome.angrybirds.com_0.localstorage and pasting it to the same location on the new pc.

    This is the path: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage

    My six year old son is obsessed with this game. He first started playing on my husband’s Droid. I ordered this as a birthday present (it’s in November) but ended up giving it to him early. Shipping was fast – received within 3 days of ordering. I got it today and immediately gave it to him and his younger (5 yr old) sister to play with. Set up was easy – within a few minutes – and they have been playing with it ever since. This one is a keeper!

    Does this apply to any other game out there? I’ve gt problems with save game data. You see I haven rooted my phone (was about to) so I cant backup my save data yet right? I was planning to buy some cash items in a game called SAS Zombie assault 3 and I was worried all my cash items would be gone after I installed it in a new device or I reinstall the game again…

    There is an easier way that do not need rooting.
    Goole on:”Yes you can back up your Angry Birds data, without rooting your phone”
    use the quotes around the search text.
    Look on the forum page for the solution starting with “yes you can …”

    good luck.., marco
