Bug Found in Angry Birds for Android – Lets you Unlock all Worlds
Do you know Angry Birds? If not, you must’ve been living under a stone. It’s a game that has been available for iOS for a long time, and is now available for Android too. Its popularity is huge, thanks to the nice graphics and smooth animations, and of course the nice game play. Some people may find it too difficult in the end though – resulting in new worlds that are being left locked because not all the previous levels are finished. Now for those people, there is a way to unlock all worlds and get access to all levels.
XDA member ddgarcia05 noticed some smart people over at reddit.com found the pretty complicated workaround:
Found this out quite by accident.
- Load up Angry Birds and go to the world select screen.
- Centre a locked world on the screen.
- Push back button all the way out of Angry Birds.
- Load Angry Birds back up and when the “Play” button appears tap the s**t out of that m********r.
- Great success! You should be inside the locked worlds stage select screen.
- To keep it unlocked just pass the first world.
Many would argue whether it’s really fair to do this, but it can be quite useful when you flash or reset your phone, for level data can’t be backed up (Update: Titanium does that job too!)
Yet we’re wondering whether it’s actually a bug, or just the developers’ intend. No matter what, it can be pretty useful!

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates. However, the phones did not pick up as big a response as Google hoped. Now, as per a report by The Economic Times, it appears that Google is rethinking their strategy towards Android One in India. The first gen Android One devices focused on first time smartphone users, but were flawed in...
