If you are a huge fan of Need for Speed series and you also happen to own a tablet or smartphone right now, then you should definitely play the latest installment of this series called 'Need for Speed: No Limits' because it's now available on Google Play Store for FREE.
However, if you're not really satisfied with this game and want to remove it from your device, then I suggest you to backup the saved data of this game manually.
So later, if you want to play it again in the future, you can reinstall the game from Google Play Store and then restore the saved data back to this game. By doing so, you can continue the game from your last progress with all of your achievements like cars, modifications, etc.
Okay then, below I’m going to show you how exactly to backup the saved data of Need for Speed: No Limits on your Android device.
#1. Open file explorer
First things first, open the file manager or file explorer that comes with your tablet. However, if your tablet doesn’t come with a stock file explorer, then you can use one great file explorer called ‘X-plore’.
This file manager is free by the way on Google Play Store and it’s also small in size. But this app is very complete in terms of features and it's also simple to use.
#2. Open the internal storage of your device
Okay, after opening the file explorer, now open the INTERNAL STORAGE on your device.
Normally, most of Android devices will set the internal storage as the default storage when installing all apps and games. So everytime you install a new app or game, it will be installed automatically on internal storage.
It goes the same with the saved data of apps/games, which usually will be placed on internal storage as well. So if Need for Speed: No Limits is installed on internal storage, then the saved data of this game will also be placed on internal storage.
#3. Go to ‘Android/data’
After opening the internal/external storage with file explorer, now open the folder ‘Android/data’.
As you can see on the screen, inside this folder, you’ll see saved data folders of all apps/games that you have installed on your tablet.
#4. Find the saved data folder of Need for Speed: No Limits
Inside the folder ‘Android/data’, now scroll down and find the folder named ‘com.ea.game.nfs14_row’.
This folder contains the saved data of NFS: No Limits mobile game. So your last progress in this game, like levels, cars, modifications, opened maps, etc, will automatically be saved here in this folder.
#5. Copy the saved data folder
Okay, after finding the saved data folder of NFS: No Limits mobile game, now COPY the folder ‘com.ea.game.nfs14_row’.
#6. Paste the folder somewhere else
Next, PASTE that saved data folder to other place on your device, like microSD card or maybe USB flashdisk. But don’t change the name of this folder. Just leave it alone with its original name: ‘com.ea.game.nfs14_row’.
#7. How to restore the saved data of the game?
I assume that you already backup the saved data folder of NFS: No Limits. But the question is, how to restore this backup and when we need to do that?
Okay, if you accidentally/deliberately remove this NFS: No Limits from your tablet, and you decide to re-download this game again from Google Play Store, this game will then be reset in default on your device, which means all the data in this game will be lost.
So all of your achievements, your collected cars, car modifications/upgrades, opened maps and everything in this game will be deleted and reset from the start.
This is the time when you need to restore the saved data of NFS: No Limits.
To restore the saved data of this game, it’s actually really easy to do that. I assume that you’ve already made the copy of the saved data folder named ‘com.ea.game.nfs14_row’ earlier.
If you want to restore the saved data of NFS: No Limits, all you need to do is copy this old saved data folder and then paste it inside ‘Android/data’. By doing this, it will then overwrite the default saved data of NFS: No Limits mobile game.
If you have done that, now you can open the game.
As you can see, all of your progress like cars, maps, achievements and everything will be restored back just like it used to be. Now you continue again the game from your last progress.
Well, there you have it guys, my tips for you if you want know how to backup the saved data of Need for Speed: No Limits mobile game manually.
I suggest you to do this regularly but ONLY if your microSD card suffers an error or problem which always keeps deleting any of your files randomly.
But if it doesn’t, then you don’t need to do this backup regularly. You can actually backup the saved data of this game when you want to delete this game out from your tablet.
So the next time you miss this game, you can re-download it again from Google Play Store (since it’s free), and then restore back the saved data of this game. Then you can continue your last progress in this game as it used to be.
