Hack Angry Birds Go! to Have Infinite Coins and Gems


Rovio’s Angry Birds Go! features a dual-currency system containing coins and gems. They can be used to upgrade your karts, buy new karts, and fill up the energy of tired birds after the races. If you want to earn more coins to upgrade your karts faster or are frustrated by the time-based wait system, the following tutorial will help you.

After the tutorial, you will get the following: 900,000,00+ coins, 800,000,000 gems, and karts with maximum performances. I have only raced a few rounds and unlocked a character, so there are many more aspects of the game for you to discover.

Warning: The new save file will override your previous one, so back up your current game progress.

This tutorial works with jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices.

1. Download and install the iFunbox tool for iOS devices.

2. Once the program is installed, launch it, and connect your device to the computer. The program should recognize your device automatically. Switch to the iFunbox Classic tab, and navigate to your device -> User Applications -> Angry Birds -> Documents.

3. It is recommended that you back up your current save files so that you can always revert back to the safe state if something goes wrong. To back up your files, select all files on the right side, right-click, and choose Copy To PC. In the new Explorer window, create a new folder, and put your files in there.

4. Next, we will override your current saved game with a new one. Download the following Angry Bird Go! save file. Once the download process is completed, right-click on the file, and choose Extract All. The results are two files: save_guest.dat and save_guest_backup.dat.

5. Make sure that the game is not running. While the iFunbox window is still showing the User Applications/Angry Birds/Documents folder, drag the two extracted files to the iFunbox window, and it will automatically override the previous save game.

Alternatively, you can click on an empty space on the right side of the iFunbox window, choose Copy From PC, and choose the two save files.

6. Safely disconnect your device from the computer, and launch the game to see the changes. You should notice that the number of coins and gems has changed. Your karts’ performance should also be maxed out.

      Before connecting your ipad to computer reset your ipad (in ipad settings) without deleting any items option.

      Then open iFunbox in your computer.

      Then connect your ipad to your.

      If you have itune in your computer, just close it.

      Now you replace the 2 files with following the instruction above, Sure it will work.

      I also had the same problem, (those 2 files could not replce) Once rest the ipad, it works.

      Did you kill the game before overriding the save file?


  5. December 16, 2013 at 7:33 pm, LordRasta said:

    It works on my iPhone 5 but I had to kill the app (home button/swipe up) and remove the replace, not overwrite the 2 files provided. I’ve been having a blast ever since.

    Trust me this worked and I HATE the survey crap. Thank you for just providing what we need. All the cars would nice….. :-)


    • December 16, 2013 at 11:30 pm, Lê Hoàng said:

      Thanks! If possible, I will hack all the cars and post the save here :)

        Thank you, please do. The prices for the cars are just ridiculous.

        Any luck with the cars? Thanks!

    The hack worked just fine but my over all progress in the game was lost somehow :-/ Any1 know how to fix this?


    • December 19, 2013 at 8:45 am, Lê Hoàng said:

      You are using my save file, which starts from the beginning, the only way to get your progress back is to restore the old save game. Sorry for the inconvenience

    Great work, Lê Hoàng!

    What if we’re not playing as Guest? I tried copying the contents of the files in your download into my “save_upgraded_[long string of characters].dat” and “save_upgraded_[long string of characters]_backup.dat” but it doesn’t work, my old coins/crystals are still there.

    Any suggestions?

    Can you provide a working save file for BlackBerry 10 ? I tried this one but it doesn’t work. I can provide you the original BB10 save files for modding.


    • December 22, 2013 at 10:50 pm, Lê Hoàng said:

      Sorry, I don’t have a Blackberry to hack the save file :(

        Here are the original BB10 save files https://www.mediafire.com/?7fr7q4oftoljt5i
        If you can, take a look at them.

  17. January 04, 2014 at 2:08 am, tak said:

    its not working for me. i had close the app, replace the files but does not work. i noticed there are 2 more additional saved files, save_upgraded_{numbers} and save_upgraded_{numbers}_backup.dat. seems like it is always replaced by these 2 files.


    • January 04, 2014 at 9:37 pm, Lê Hoàng said:

      Can you rename the files to save_upgraded_{numbers} and save_upgraded_{numbers} and try again?


  18. January 05, 2014 at 7:02 pm, RedBird245 said:

    When I check the game, the coins and gems dont appear as the picture above. Is this updated to the newest version? I’m asking, and I also killed the app ( home button twice, then swiped up ) as stated by the steps.

    thank you it worked fine on ipad

    How did you edit the dat files? I see you used a hex editor, but I would like to learn more so I can play around with the save files. Is there a specific way you edit the numbers? Thanks
