Using Helium to back up the game

Post by SannSunn on Sun Mar 15, 2015 9:01 pm

A little bit off topic but since a lot of you use Helium to back up their game you may have the same issue and I didn't find any helpful information elsewhere.

A few days ago I got a new phone and on this phone Helium is not noticing my external SD card. I always alternated backing up on my external card and my phone so I had at least 2 recent versions of my game. But now I can't. I can check my music etc on my sd card so the phone does recognize the card (and between the files I can see a back up of the game), only Helium isn't, its not visible between the options to back up. Does any of you have the same issue?

You probably want to contact the developers.  Here is a thread I found (Helium is mixed in with other apps with the same issue).  Seems the developers are not smart enough to make it work unless your phone is rooted.

This post is almost a year old so maybe they have a solution now.

I also have a Samsung S5 and indeed Helium does not recognize my sd card. I work around this by copying the backed up file(s) to my laptop.

So you can use Helium to back up AC on a Galaxy S5 without being rooted (given a slight Kabuki D*ck Dance to save it to offline storage)?

(As a recent purchaser of a GS5, this is relevant to my interests)

Hi Chris,
I have Galaxy S5 and I'm not rooted.  Back up with Helium, data only, to google drive no problems at all.  Restore is great!!!!!  Was nervous at first, but I use it now for both tablet (S3) and phone (S5).  Now I have no worries.
Good luck!
