    Hi guys

    I've been looking around to find a way to edit some games, eg mafia wars,haypi kingdom and such, but to no avail. i have gone to the haypikingdom.app and poked around in there, but what appears to be the main file spits out garbage when i open it with notepad. is there any way to edit the app or the ipa

    thanks

    some of the text files will open with words, some with encoded gibberish. just work with what you can actually read.

    ...that's due to the fact that the binary is, well, binary. It's a Mach-O executable. If you know ARM assembly, you can alter instructions; otherwise, you can just edit literals with a hex editor.

    do not upload copyrighted material—I removed it. If you want to mess around with it, use a hex editor; however, if you don't know what you are doing, it will likely be a waste of time.
