------------------------------------
Altough apps are coming:
Game On Backup and share 60 game saves
GameSaver Backup 3 games
AngryBirdsBackup Backup 3 angry birds in the cloud
SaveShare - game save sync Amazing easy backup trough personnal DropBox on multiple personnal devices
------------------------------------
Abduction 2 : {Root}data/data/au.com.phil.abduction2/databases/abduction2 + abduction2-journal
Angry birds : {Root}data/data/com.rovio.angrybirds/files/highscores.lua and /settings.lua (must be RW without Execute right)

I've been looking for a thread like this for days. This is the only way to backup games if the phone isn't rooted. Is it possible to actually list every file instead of just saying the entire directory? Or are there too many files. Because to copy the file without root, you must know the exact file name.

Here's the ones I've gotten so far
Tested
Abduction 2
/data/data/au.com.phil.abduction2/databases/abduction2
/data/data/au.com.phil.abduction2/databases/abduction2-journal

Angry Birds Seasons
/data/data/com.rovio.angrybirdsseasons/files/highscores.lua
/data/data/com.rovio.angrybirdsseasons/files/settings.lua

World of Goo Demo
/data/data/com.twodboy.worldofgoodemo/files/pers2.dat

World of Goo Full
/data/data/com.twodboy.worldofgoofull/files/pers2.dat

Not Tested
Abduction
/data/data/au.com.phil.abduction/databases/data

Clouds & Sheep
/data/data/com.hg.cloudsandsheepfree/files/pasture0.save

Destinia
/data/data/game.destiniaeng/files/msave.dat
/data/data/game.destiniaeng/files/save1.dat

Drag Racing
/data/data/com.creativemobile.DragRacing/save.dat

Link It Pro
/data/data/com.boolbalabs.linkit.pro/shared_prefs/LinkItTag.xml

Sentinel
/data/data/com.Origin8.Sentinel3/app.OEAppSaveData/0_PERSISTENT_DATA.dat
/data/data/com.Origin8.Sentinel3/app.OEAppSaveData/0_PERSISTENT_DATA_CS.dat

Slice It
/data/data/com.com2us.sliceit/game_info.dat
/data/data/com.com2us.sliceit/game_info_2.dat
/data/data/com.com2us.sliceit/game_info_3.dat

Requests
I've been trying to track these down all over the place, but it's really hard without a rooted phone. If someone could take a look, I would be very grateful.
Free Games
Cartoon Wars: Gunner
HeavenHell
BIA2 Free+ HD

Paid Games
9mmHD
Asphalt 6*
Backstab HD*
Block Breaker 3
Captain America: Sentinal of Liberty
GT Racing*
Jenga
Let's Golf 3*
Modern Combat 3*
Modern Combat 2
N.O.V.A. 2 HD
Tintin HD
Uno

* = I found some files on the SD card, so maybe that's it. But I would still appreciate if someone checked /data/data files for me

Another app that deserves recognition for this stuff is SaveShare.

Not exactly, i know for sure it's somewhere near the dead space one, because you can backup it with Titanium. Based of this knowledge and dates on my phone i would say :

data/data/com.ea.games.meinfiltrator_row/files/var/settings.db

In order to do it I would need to root my phone and the tablet I would like the game to transfer to? Or can I do it without root? I tried to find that director but there is nothing under the 'files' folder on my phone. except for something called game skeleton.

What ??? JB is a minor update and ALL these games are (of course) working on it.
Asphalt 7 require root. But why would you backup manually when the game can backup itself on a facebook account or a gameloft account ?

Well i have created gameloft account and its showing trophies that i have unlocked in the game...
Now, is the game automatically saved on gameloft servers OR i have to upload save OR do some procedure ? -- How to confirm

I know it works, i did it myself on my tab, process can be tricky, but i was abble to check on both device on the same time, i can't even remember what account i used as i tried both accounts to be sure

Hi to everyone. I have a suspect. Maybe, for both the "cut the rope" games, there's a new simple way to backup the save data game. Just like "pudding monsters", there's two files located in
sdcard/ZeptoLab/Cut the Rope
Maybe we could simply copy and restore them ;) .
If someone try, it could be a great news for game lover like us :D

Victory!!! I've just tried between my paid version of "Cut The Rope" and a free versione of the game. It perfectly works. Simply, before copying the file to the new device, clear data of "Cut The Rope". When you start the game, it will ask you if you want to restore the game save data :D
