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

Internal storage > games > com.mojang > minecraftWorlds

On my new phone, I went to put the worlds in, but I couldn't find the games folder. When I searched, I couldn't find com.mojang either. 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).

Where are the Minecraft worlds located on Android Marshmallow? I can't seem to find them.

  • Have you played Minecraft on that device yet? If you do, it should create all the necessary folders, then you can replace them. Commented Jul 23, 2017 at 21:57

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.


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.
