I don't really want to root either phone. But if I absolutely had to, I could root the HTC Legend, but definitely not the Samsung Galaxy S3.

  • Why can't you root the Samsung Galaxy S3? Is there any specific reason why?

  • It's a brand new phone that is quite expensive and I don't want to be stuck if it develops any problems or bricks itself.

  • If it were safe, would you do it? There's a noob-friendly guide for rooting the S3 here (from a reputable source too): xda-developers.com/android/…

    If it's just about AngryBirds: Why not use AngryBirds Backup (there are at least two more backup apps for those birds)?

As long as none of the devices runs JellyBean (Android 4.1 and up), and it's just about those Angry Birds (as the comments suggest), take a look at AngryBirds Backup:

AngryBirds backup

As the screenshot shows, the app supports a variety of the AngryBirds games (I don't know if it's complete, as I'm no "gamer", but it looks pretty much). So use this app to backup your AngryBirds data from the old phone to SD, copy the data to the SD card of the new phone, and use the very same app to restore them there.
