Current version: 1.4

Minecraft Pocket Edition gives the player a choice of where their worlds should be kept. "External" saves Worlds in the device storage where the user can easily transfer them to another device. "Application" stores the Worlds internally in Minecraft’s private folder to which you have no access. Many people believe that rooting your device is the only method of exporting the worlds. However, this is not true!

You can use this program to export worlds from Minecraft Pocket Edition if your "Storage Type" is set to "Application" in Minecraft Settings. The whole process is very simple and can be finished in under five minutes. Your device does NOT need to be rooted!



The program utilizes ADB’s backup feature which allows for copying an applications data even without root privileges. However, the exported backup file is encrypted so Android Backup Extractor is used to extract its contents into a tar archive. 7zip is then used to unarchive the tar file, and finally, the minecraftWorlds folder is moved to the desktop.

The only user interaction required is the installation of the Android driver and enabling USB Debugging in Android Settings. Instructions for doing both of these tasks are included in the program.

The EXE file you download is actually a self-extracting SFX archive. After you run the EXE file, you can take a look at the actual files. They are located at:


(if the above directory is empty, replace 0 with different number)

Please be careful, however, as modifying these files may result in the program not working as intended.


The latest version (1.4) can be downloaded from my website or Google Drive. The self-extracting EXE file is 16.9MB in size.

Please note: The file’s format has been renamed from "exe" to "exee" in order to avoid Antivirus software from wrongly detecting it as a virus. To be able to run the program you will have to rename the file to "InternalWorldExporter.exe". Unfortunately, this only sometimes works and your antivirus might still cancel your download.
