Due to Popular demand, Finally i decided to make a Tutorial on How to Hack Flappy Bird on Android and iOS. So here you go. Have Fun.



WARNING – Whatever you do with your phone, you do that entirely on your own risk and you have full responsibility for the consequences. The author can’t be responsible for any damages of your phone!


Firstly, you need root for this to work. Don’t know what Root is ? You should Google it.

Once you have a Rooted device, you need to Get the following Apps.

1) Flappy Bird

2) ES File Explorer

Now follow these steps,

1) Open Flappy Bird and play at least one time.

2) Close it (From the Multitasking Trey as well)

3) Open ES File Explorer, and swipe right to open the left-side menu. Tap the “Tools” line item and make sure “Root Explorer” is turned on. You need to provide Superuser privileges for it to work (So hit Grant when promoted)


4) Then tap the “Local” line item, and choose “/ Device.” This puts you in the root of the System.




5) Swipe the left menu away, and tap the folder named “data”. Look for another folder also named “data” and tap to open it.



6) Scroll down to find the folder named “com.dotgears.flappy” and open it or use the search button below to search for it (Just type Flappy)




7) Open the “shared_prefs” folder, and tap the FlappyBird.xml file. You’ll get a choice of ways to open it, choose ES Note Editor.



8) Tap the three dots in the upper right, and choose Edit.

9) The fourth line is what you need to change. Set the <int name=”score” value =”your_score” /> to something like <int name=”score” value =”9999″ />.
