Flappy Bird Hack (Jailbreak Required)


Currently the most talked about app on the App Store, Flappy Bird is an simple but addictive 8-bit arcade game developed by .GEARS (dotGears) Studios, a small, independent game development company based in Vietnam.

Below is a 6 step walk-through on how to edit the length of the pipes within the game, allowing you to easily increase your high-score in arguably one of the hardest games in the App Store.


  • Flappy Bird
  • Jailbroken iDevice
  • iFile [iFile Settings –> File Manager —> Application Names (on)]

Step 1

After installing iFile on your iDevice and toggling on Application Names in the settings (above) open iFile and navigate to /var/mobile/Applications and tap the Flappy Bird folder.

Step 2

Then, go to the folder and open the atlas.txt file (Text Viewer).

Step 3

Next, select ‘Edit’ and scroll until this text is visible:

pipe_down 52 270 0.58984375 0.0 0.05078125 0.5273437

Step 4

While still in ‘edit mode’, change the number 270 to a 4 within the pipe_down string of numbers. Then select ‘Save’ then ‘Done’

pipe_down 52 4 0.58984375 0.0 0.05078125 0.5273437

Step 5

After editing with iFile, activate the App Switcher and swipe up on the Flappy Bird application card to ‘close’ the application.

Step 6

Finally, open the Flappy Bird application and flap your wings to your best score yet.
