For those who are in the initial stages of the game and crave to unlock all the abilities, powers and the characters, here is a simple trick to do so. Just follow the steps below. It’s really simple.

Files Required:

Make sure that you have played the game at least once before you proceed with the below mentioned steps.

  • Open the file manager that you use and copy the gamedata.txt file [As you need to move it to an inner directory].
  • Navigate to the following directory using the File Manager : /sdcard/Android/data/com.imangi.templerun2/files

  • You’ll find a file named as “gamedata.txt.”
  • Press and hold to rename the file to either gamedata.bak or gamedata.apk.
  • Now paste [copy] the file that you had downloaded earlier [gamedata.txt] to the same folder [i.e. /sdcard/Android/data/com.imangi.templerun2/files].

It should look something like this:


Here gamedata.apk is the renamed file and the gamedata.txt is the copied file. And there you are! Now when you open the game and go to the Menu > Upgrade section, you will a screen something similar to that shown below, with all the features unlocked and unlimited number of coins.

  1. Didnt work for me at call. The app just crashed and now my device wont work correctly…. thanks

    • That is highly impossible. The app has nothing to do with your device. At the most the game might not work properly, but surely nothing more than that. Maybe the problem is related to something else.

  2. Worked like a charm! Just one doubt, what if all gems are over? should we reinstall this game again?
