I have a tablet with Android 4.2 and would like to copy/move the application user data (savegames, ...) from one user to another. I have root. Which directory do I need to move/copy. And do I have to care about the permissions?

I cannot say for sure (have yet to dig into the new directory structures with 4.2+). But a good guess comes from where the data are usually stored (/data/data/com.myapp, where com.myapp is the app's package name) and the fact that JB uses numerics (like e.g. /mnt/sdcard0) for user specific stuff: Check if there's something similar, I'd guess it will be something like /data/data0/com.myapp for the first user). –  Izzy Jan 6 '13 at 0:05
