This also works with seasons and rio as well.
Pre-requisites:
  • rooted phone/tablet
  • root explorer installed
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.

This is not warez. It's just saved game data and it's 100% allowed, and no, you can't unlock June and beyond before update.

Are permissions not retained from the files you copy?

You can also do it with adb:

To backup:
Code:
adb shell
# su
# busybox cp /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirds/files/*.lua /sdcard
to restore:
Code:
adb shell
# su
# cd /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirds/files
# ls -l
-rw-rw-rw- app_114  app_114     16668 2011-06-10 01:22 highscores.lua
-rw-rw-rw- app_114  app_114      1521 2011-06-11 11:15 settings.lua
# busybox cp /sdcard/highscores.lua .
# busybox cp /sdcard/settings.lua .
# chown app_114.app_114 *.lua
# chmod 666 *.lua
You can also complete the first level (so that highscores.lua gets created with correct permissions), and then restore using:
Code:
adb shell
# su
# cat /sdcard/highscores.lua > /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirds/files/highscores.lua
# cat /sdcard/settings.lua > /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirds/files/settings.lua
You can also use titanium-backup to back it up. Restoring with titanium might not always work, but don't worry, the .tar.gz generated with titanium contains the two required lua-files, you can just extract them from there.

Also, iirc there is some free app on the market, that can do it without root (no idea if it still works). Just don't buy the paid ones.

You know... The option to have your app data back up is built into Android OS... Settings>Privacy Settings>
Check the following:
Back up my data
Automatic restore

Hell, they're even enabled by default.... Or at least they were with my phone (HTC Desire).

I'm not sure how or if angry birds uses the built-in backup-mechanism.
Anyways, on some devices this functionality is not available. Either because it hasn't got froyo yet, or the manufacturer disabled the backup-transport for some reason (e.g. Samsung).

Also I can't decide when to make the backup, and can never be sure I have one.

Not always. It also saves a backup of the cache, that might be invalid in other ROMs, causing Angry Birds to FC if restored.
