Have you ever been bored out of your life by playing Tap Fish 2, because you couldn't buy all the cool fish? You knew how but you didn't know how to jailbreak? This instructable shows a easy way to "hack" Tap Fish 2 without jailbreaking your iDevice. Basic HTML or XML understanding is recommended, but anyone can do this. Just saying, I do not own any software that is spoken on this (including Tap Fish 2 itself) if this is copyright, you may delete this.

Step 1: Get the Program
You will need to download a program called iExplorer. It detects your iDevice as a external hard drive (like a usb plug) and lets you modify the system files! WARNING: Whatever you do with this program is at your own risk. Don't come crying to me saying "I messed up my iPhone!!". You can get this program at http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/
Step 2: Enter IExplorer
Plug in your iDevice to your computer and start up iExplorer. Wait 10 seconds. If nothing pops in iExplorer, un-plug your iDevice and repeat this step.
Step 3: Now for the Fun Stuff
Close out of Media and enter Apps. Now enter com.gameviewstudios.fishlifeplus and then enter FishLifePlus.app. Next search for the two files localstore.xml and localstore_en.xml. Drag them on your desktop and Right Click localstore.xml and choose Open With Wordpad or any other text editor. I used Visual Basic 2008 (cause I like it). Don't do Notepad, I tried it. Scroll down to the green snapper. Look for the <price pricetype="coins">10.0</price> and change the 10.0 to -999999999. Now go for the yellow snapper and look for <price pricetype="coins">15.0</price and change the "coins" to "fishbucks" and change the 15.0 to -999999999. Press control + A (command + A on mac) and then press control + C (command + C on mac). Open localstore_en.xml, hit control + A (command + A on mac) and then press control + V (command + V on mac) Save it, drag the two files back in iExplorer, say yes to everything. Unplug your device and exit out of iExplorer.
Step 4: Test It
Go into Tap Fish 2 and try buying a green snapper and a yellow snapper. Now look at your money. Amazing, isn't it? WARNING: You may mess up your Tap Fish 2 game by buying too much green snappers and yellow snappers. Only buy them when you are running out of your money (somewhere about 5,000 coins, 1,000 fishbucks). I hope you had fun with this!
Step 5: Messed Up Your Game?
You messed up your game? No problem. Click the pointer button on the bottom right screen of tap fish 2. Now click "About Tap Fish 2". Next click the restore game button. If you followed this, you got the money but you can't buy anything with it? Restart your tap fish 2 game and then repeat steps 2-4, but when you type the -999999999 type in -100 in its place and buy many of green and yellow snappers. There, problems fixed! If you still have problems post in the comments bellow.
