Even Google can't seem to help me find this, but where is the world data saved at on the phone now? I've tried following the instructions in the walkthrough and every result on google, but even with hidden folders shown I don't have a games folder and there don't appear to be any .mcworld files saved on my phone anywhere I can find.

Samsung Galaxy J36V, Android vr 7.1.1

They moved where it used it be.

In my phone it's now located in

Phone> Games> com.mojang

There you can find a lot of the games assets including the maps.

I've been searching everywhere for this same thing. Problem is I have neither a Games folder nor a com.mojang folder. Closest thing I have is two instances of a com.mojang.minecraftpe folder, one with a single Files folder in it. I've tried putting the downloaded world folders in all three of these and none have worked.

I've got my Android phone hooked up to my Win 10 PC for easier file searching. I've tried multiple searches and haven't been able to find anything but those three empty folders. I have started the game and created a world so it has to be saved somewhere but I can't find it.

I was really looking forward to this getting this set up. I'm trying for a win streak and I figured this would be perfect for days when my power or net goes out or I'm out of town.

Can anyone please help?

The issue is I do not have a Games folder anywhere on the device, nor will it work if I manually add one.

Hmm...

This is weird.... did you guys check your SD card if you have one? Though all my Minecraft stuff is located in Phone

It isn't where it used to be in my phone but I was able to find the new location....

Well right now you could use a PC world and join it with your phone and play in there.

You can join your own games via different devices.

I've tried on two different phones now (the aforementioned Samsung and a Motorola Moto e), both with and without SD cards, to no avail.

Sadly that solution isn't optimal for trying to have the achievement worlds for keeping up a streak while not at home, either. And still comes with the issue of host-only achievements when trying to use the worlds from the guide.

Thank you, though!

I'm not really sure what to say.......

I can find it on my phone...


Hold on I'm gonna install it on my Galaxy Tablet and I'll see where those worlds go.

I'll post back when I find out.

EDIT: When I loaded the game up it said I had no worlds and to pick a destination.

Application or External

I picked Application.

I created a new world saved and closed the game.

I went to my file manger and sure enough it created a games folder which has a com.mojang folder.


Have you guys tried to search for a com.mojang?

Okay, I finally made it work in a really weird way. What I had to do was:

Delete all my worlds.

Place a SD card in the phone.

Go to the world menu.

Select 'External' for world location.

It created a games folder on my phone, not the SD card.

For some reason, it never gave me the option for application/external when I first started it without the SD card, not did it give me the option on the Motorola (which installed to the SD card by default as the phone memory was full, so there was only one destination)

That's so odd lol where in the world was it going without the SD?

Well at least you got it working now.

My phone doesn't have an SD card slot. And to be honest, I don't remember if there was an option to choose between Application and External when I first started. But I did delete the worlds I had and restarted the game. At that point I chose External and the game created the necessary folders.

So thanks to the both of you I managed to get this working.

Thank you!

I can only assume an inaccessible system folder with the actual program files for the game.

Glad this was able to help more than just myself!
