Flappy Bird is the new rage on the Internet, Almost everybody is hating it – Which is why I guess the developer is going to shut down the game today. Anyways I thought to share a simple cheat for Flappy Bird on Android which would allow you to set a new High Score. I know the game would continue to live on through APK files. 😀
The hack is simple but requires you to have a Rooted Android because it involves editing a game file in the data partition.
How to Hack Flappy Bird to Set a New High Score
Step 1. Close the game > Force stop the game from settings (or swipe out from the multi tasking window).
Step 2. Open your Root File Explorer (Such as ES File Explorer).
Step 3. Navigate to the root directory (Tap on the / at the top) > data > data > com.dotgears.flappy > shared_prefs folder.
Step 4. Open the FlappyBird.xml file in your text editor.
Step 5. Change the line:
<int name=”score” value =”your_current_high_score” />
<int name=”score” value =”9999999 or some other high score” />
Step 6. Save it > Exit the File Manager > Open the game > Hit a pipe or die trying.
After you the Flappy bird dies, Your best score will be the one you set in the file manager. Kudos! Now take a screenshot and brag about it. Also later on share this article with them. 😉
