Angry Birds Space for $0.25!

…but I had a problem.  I already was halfway through on the free version and my settings were not copied across.

How to copy your settings from the free to premium version if you have root:

1. Make sure no copy of Angry Birds is running

2. Copy the highscores.lua file from the ads version to the paid version:

# cp /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirdsspace.ads/files/highscores.lua /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirdsspace.premium/files/highscores.lua 

# chmod 666 /data/data/com.rovio.angrybirdsspace.premium/files/highscores.lua

(Presumably you'll have something like ConnectBot to get a shell).

3. Play Angry Birds Space Premium
(the free version can be deleted now).
