    This guide is for educational purposes only. I take no responsibly of what YOU do with IT. I will NEVER mod games that are multi player as this may ruin people's game experiences. I created this guide and the screenshots. You can use this guide on other forums but please give me credit for creating it.

    This guide about modding the DNA points in-game however other game variables may be modded following this guide.

    Requirements:
    Plague Inc. App
    JailBreak
    iFile
    This Guide
    A brain

    Step 1. Open iFile then navigate until you find the Plague Inc. app folder then tap to open that folder and it should look like the screenshot below.

    Step 2. Once inside the folder open the Plague.app folder (highlighted in screenshot above) and navigate to the disease you would like to mod and tap to open it and choose 'Text', the full list of editable files is in the code below.
    Code (Text):
    -bacteria.txt - Bacteria
    -escaped-bio-weapon.txt - BioWeapon
    -fungus.txt - Fungus
    -parasite.txt - Parasite
    -prion.txt - Prion
    -rogue-nanobot.txt - NanoBot
    -virus.txt - Virus
    -zombie.txt - Necroa Virus (DLC, Available After Purchase)
    -neurax.txt - Neurax Worm (DLC, Available After Purchase)
     
    -realmap.txt - Country info eg. population, transmission rates and density
    -world.txt - Country info eg. population, transmission rates and density
    [​IMG]

    Step 3. I will be using the bacteria.text to edit the bacteria however you could edit any of the above .txt files. Click edit (highlighted in purple in screenshot below) and look for the 'air_1' variable called 'cost' which in this case happends to be -9 (highlighted in red in screenshot below) (However there are also other editable variables (highlighted in blue in screenshot below) which i will NOT edit but you may do so).
    [​IMG]

    Step 4. Change the 'cost' variable to 9999 what variable you want and click 'Save' then exit iFile.
    [​IMG]

    Step 5. Open Plague Inc then choose to play with the disease you edited then if you have followed the guide navigate to the Transmission tab ingame and you should notice that the first Air tab is lighted up.

    Step 6. Tap 'Evolve' and profit you now have 9999 points.

    Step 7. Play and Enjoy and try to experiment with other variables to make this your best disease simulator experience.

    really? cus i just searched for a cracked app and it gave me a plague inc app that unlocked everything. it just skipped the bill cycle and when you went to select something Ex. Cheat Plague it would take you to the app store and say error cannot connect account or something. and take you back to the game and bam it would be unlocked

    Thats either a modified ipa or you have iapcracker. This is for modifing the ingame DNA points aswell as other misc stuff.

    No, i can't access iFile and stuff like that. Once the new jailbreak comes out i will put up pictures and a little tutorial. It has to do with editing a text file that has all your saved data on with each plague type.

    I will check this with the new update and see if it works.

    Edit still works, just did it on the Zombie disease. Updated OP for new diseases.

    There is a way to get the first seven. You can also edit the preferences file and see the purchases you made, unfortunately it requires a receipt and ifile can't decrypt that so it can be transferred.

    Look at the pinned thread in the iOS section. It has a very nice repo and package for downloading cracked in-app purchases. It's called LocalIAPStore. I'm pretty sure that's what you are looking for.

    Hi, I thought I'd bump this and tell you that there is a simple way to unlock the additional disease types (Neurax Worm and Necroa Virus).

    1. Backup the text within any previously unlocked disease
    2. Copy and paste all the information from any premium disease into the file
    3. IMPORTANT - If you do not re-name the first two lines of the data back to the original disease name BlueStacks will crash. e.g. in the virus.txt, if replacing with Neurax Worm
    # NEURAX WORM
    # Neurax Worm
    becomes
    # VIRUS
    # Virus

    A brief note that I have not yet found a way to make the custom GUI work, although all the traits and abilities are available. Statuses still give tips for virus or whatever you are using as well.

    This used to work for me. Now it doesn't. All plagues are encrypted and iAPFree/iAPCracker don't work anymore.
