Thread: i messed up my first hack Help!!
05-19-2011, 12:30 PM #1i messed up my first hack Help!!
so i downloaded this free game from the appstore: Metalstorm online
its basicly a dog fight game with planes, cannons and guns to buy with unlocked coins or bought trough in app-purchase
when i first started the game i got to choose a plane, well the plane sucked and there was no way to reverse it.
so i looked on some forums and they said you could edit the contentsettings.xml
so i went to ifile found the contentsettings.xml edited all the prices to 0 coins and set the xml. to read only so the game couldnt rewrite it.
all worked perfectly i got the best planes in the game for free.
thats when i became greedy.
i saw the cannons and guns still costed coins so i went to ifile again and reduced their prises to 0 aswell
then a new file was created: Contentsettings.xml%
i dindt knew what it was i quessed a copy so i deleted that and kept the original
i then started the game and crashed after seeing the loading screen i went back to ifile to see the contentsettings.xml missing along with some other files that where in the library folder before.
i tried redownloading from appstore and itunes, butt nothing works
does anyone here got an idea. i really liked the game
like the title says this is my first hack ever, before i only used ifile to make some winterboard themes

cracking != hacking
maybe ya just should have paid for the stuff, your game would still work!
lesson learned i guess.

Restore your phone, then don't do it again
No seriously if you mess with files in your phone it can be permanent and only a restore can fix it.
