Extract the game apk and put it on your computer somewhere.
Navigate through the APK using WinRAR and under the folders res > raw find atlas.txt.
Look for "pipe2_down 52 320 0.0 0.6308594" and "pipe_down 52 320 0.109375"
Edit "320" on both to "5" You can edit to "0" to remove the pipes altogether, but it will just make the tips of the pipe invisible, which you can still hit. Personally, I edited it to 0 to make it look cleaner
Make sure you allow WinRAR to save into the archive
Un-install flappy bird from your phone, then re-install using the version from the store. DO NOT LAUNCH flappy bird until you complete the steps below following.
Upload your copy of the apk into your phone.
Using a root browser, find your uploaded apk.
Copy the apk, then navigate to data > apps.
Confirm that you have the exact same apk in this directory.
Paste your apk, and rewrite the stock apk
Now launch flappy bird
Now I'm sure there's an easier way to do this, such as editing the apk directly on your phone. I tried those too, but this way seemed to be the only way to make the edit stick.
