Yes you can back up your Angry Birds data, without rooting your phone! It takes a few steps, and it's a manual process, but pretty easy nonetheless. This works with my Samsung Android 2 phone. Install the Android SDK onto your computer from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html. You will be using the ADB program, part of the SDK's Platform-Tools. ...

Angry Birds' data would be stored inside the phones memory under the folder Data. Access to that folder is not permitted to you or any app for security reasons. Without having root access there is no way to access that folder or backup your app. However once you've obtained root access you could either extract the data yourself or use an application like ...

I found this thread on xda-developers. If you have jail broken iPhone and rooted Android phone, you can transfer your progress. Basically you have to copy two files, highscores.lua and settings.lua from /private/var/mobile/Applications/(very long string)/Documents from iPhone and replace them on Android phone in /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirds/files/. You ...

I had a very similar issue on my HTC Incredible. Try unmounting the SD card (Menu->Settings->SD & phone storage->"Unmount SD card" on my Incredible) and then installing the app. After it finished installing, you can then remount your SD card.

There is a program called "Angry Birds Backup" on the market that allows you to back your progress up without having root access. I've not tried it myself, but I've heard good things. You can read more about it on their web site at http://www.angrybackup.com/

Angry Birds save data is stored to /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirds/files. I don't believe it's backed up to Google. Normally all that's backed up is your list of apps, certain settings, contacts, etc. So your wipe data would have erased it. I always use Titanium Backup to save my apps and their data. And when I do something risky like flash a beta ROM ...

No. There is no guarantee that the information is stored in the same format between multiple platforms. But also there isn't a way to browse the data files on ios or access the file system. Unless you are rooted, I don't think you have access to where the data files are stored on android either. Either way, you are sort of stuck. The game data is stored ...

I used a program by Antbee called Angry Birds Backup. It worked great, and it was free. For Seasons and Rio, I used Angry Birds Seasons Backup and Angry Birds Rio Backup by Whitney Powell. All three worked flawlessly. It saved me from having to root my phone and/or replay all those levels.

That means something's wrong with the package setup. For your reference, here are a few links with more detailed information: android duplicate provider authority - Stack Overflow Android duplicate provider authority problem - Stack Overflow Angry Birds Seasons Summer Pignic Now Available | AngryBirdsNest (search for "duplicate provider" on this page, ...

I believe you backed up from Recovery, correct? If that is the case, then the backup should contain everything that was on your phone before the backup -- apps, saved games, etc. So restoring the backup should have restored Angry Birds and its save data, as long as that was present before the backup. Titanium can back up the app, the app's data, or both. ...

adb shell ls -l /data/data command will get you the file and directory listing you are looking for. Specifically for Angry Birds Space, try adb pull com.rovio.angrybirdsspace.ads/files/highscores.lua C:\abs_highscores.lua

Both premium and HD are ad-free and the latter is for tablets.

It looks like it's basically a null pointer error when Angry birds tries to create a surface, which probably means that your device is simply incapable of doing the video rendering needed. I don't believe Angry Birds Rio has a Light version, unlike the regular game, so you're probably out of luck unless they release a version for less-capable devices. From ...

I'm not sure how you'd do that with the built-in file manager, but there are several file managers that will work. I use Root Explorer, and I've heard many other recommend Astro File Manager (which has a free version, I believe). They should work if you have the Superuser app installed (I would assume it comes with CM, but it's in the Market if not).

According to the Android Dev Guide, files written to the internal storage such as the Angry Birds data cannot be accessed by other applications by default. I'm guessing that Rovio used MODE_WORLD_READABLE instead of the default, however. Maybe this was a mistake or maybe they plan on having future apps being able to read your progress and unlock sometihng, ...

I can't test this since I am rooted, but I assume ADB will allow you to access the data via shell. At worst you can copy over the data into a directory on the sd card. Restoring it would be problematic. ADB = Android Debugging tool as part of the android SDK. http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html Fortunately unrevoked has a tool to root your phone ...

I checked out the HD version in the Google Play Store on my Motorola Xoom tablet. I have discovered that there is virtually no difference really, and definitely not worth the $2.98. Feel free to check it out for yourself, because unlike iOS, Android has the option to refund your purchase within 15 minutes, I believe, of the time of purchase. I refunded mine ...

It sounds like your device cannot cope with the native code being run by the Angry Birds app. Developers can include native C/C++ code in their apps, and these are compiled per processor. If part of this native code crashes, or cannot run, then the app or game closes - without a force close. This is what is happening here by the sound of it. I have ...

The Google Play store will let you know which devices each one is compatible with. The Premium was compatible with all my phone-sized devices. Note that there is also one that is tuned for the Kindle Fire called Angry Birds Space HD (Kindle Fire Edition) in the Amazon Appstore.

It may have been downloaded, but has it been installed? Open up the Market app and click "My Apps". If it isn't listed there - i suggest you reinstall it. Also, is your device capable of running it?

You can use ADB and run logcat by typing the command adb logcat > logcat.log. Alternatively you can use an app like aLogcat. That will give show you your systems logs but then you'll have to figure out what it all means. I have to agree with Matthew Reads comment that it's probably related to CM but there are so many moving parts and different ...

You cannot grant su to any normal file manager. The application has to "request" su. That is where applications like Root Explorer come in. AFAIK, Astro File Manager doesn't even make use of su. If it does, some one tell me how because I like that file manager, and will use it for my "root" tasks.
