I recently got a new phone. When getting rid of my old phone, I transferred all of my world files via USB to my computer from the following folders:

Internal storage > games > com.mojang > minecraftWorlds

In my new phone, when I went to put the worlds in, I couldn't find the games folder. When I searched, I couldn't find com.mojang The closest result was Android > obb > com.mojang.minecraftpe. This was an empty folder.

My old phone had Android Lollipop (Moto e2). My new phone is Android Marshmallow (ZTE Prestige 2).

  • Have you checked this out yet: – Kingsley Zhong Jul 23 '17 at 17:45
  • Have you played Minecraft on that device yet? If you do, it should create all the necessary folders, then you can replace them. – Fabian Röling Jul 23 '17 at 21:57

You can export the worlds by using MCPE Internal World Extractor. The program works by using ADB's backup feature to copy all the Minecraft data from the device. The archived data is then extracted using AndroidBackupExtractor and the minecraftWorlds folder is moved from it.

More information and downloads can be found here.


I had the same problem. You have to go onto a world that you have on your new phone, go to settings, go to profile, then change the world save location from application to external. This creates the games>com.minecraft>minecraftWorlds files.
