    Backing up game app data

    I am having problems with some of the game apps on my Droid X. I was wondering if there is a way to uninstall then reinstall the game without losing my progress. I have seen ways that require me to mess with the phone (Rooting?), but I do not want to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't think you need to be rooted to do that, should be able to just un install and reinstall your game. A game save folder is usually left behind in the phone, you could test this by getting a different game, play it for a few rounds and delete it, install again and see what happens.

    I tried that first. It uninstalled the game and deletes any files associated with it.

    I think you can use a astro file manager (without root) to copy files on your sdcard or just connect to a pc with usb and copy the game folder. What is the issue you are having?

    I've always had to be rooted and use something like Titanium Backup...

    The issue I am having is with a game app. When I hit the icon the screen goes black(normal) it flashes white, then I get sent back to the phone home screen.

    I have no idea about all this technical stuff like root and not root. Can someone please explain it to me, but make it simple like elementary school simple. What does it do to the phone?

    Rooting a device is simply the process of gaining full, privileged, or admin control of a device thus allowing root access or superuser permissions. The process itself basically exploits a security weakness on a device, and in simple terms, grants the user executable permissions that are not otherwise there with a non-rooted device. Once a device is rooted, the user has complete control of the device from files on the device to being able to perform additional tasks that will truly make your device your own. These days, most devices are very easy to root. Also, keep in mind that the method(s) you run across to root your device has been done numerous times by countless others.

    No technical knowledge is required for the most part – just basic computer knowledge if anything.
