Angry Birds Original (RED) Update Out Now on iOS – Special Golden Egg

New Icon

In support of (RED)’s fight against AIDS Rovio has released a special Angry Birds update that is available now for iOS. We are not sure about availability on other platforms, so please leave a comment if you see the update land on your platform.

Crashing Update: v4.3.2 has landed for iOS and should help most users with their crashing issues.

This update includes:

  • The description in iTunes states that this update will only be available for a limited time. We are not exactly sure how this will play out.
  • Golden Egg Level – Okay, this is great, but the new RED Golden Egg level is #16, and all the previous Golden Eggs greater than 16 are now incremented by one. We are in touch with Rovio to see if this can be adjusted so as not confuse people. Our Complete Golden Eggs guide is always available if you need help.
  • POWER(RED) UP! Get the Red’s Mighty Feathers power-up and use it in any level. All proceeds go to (RED)’s fight against AIDS.
  • We have walkthroughs for every level, so be sure to check them out if you’re stuck.

Experienced crashing? We’ve had a few reports of users with unplayable apps after updating. Be sure to check out our Ultimate Backup Tutorial before taking any drastic measures, such as uninstalling.

In addition to Angry Birds, I also noticed that Clash of Clans received a (RED) update. I imagine there are a bunch of others as well. If you have a complete list please leave a comment.

A BIG thanks to @dmsral for the heads up about this.

I just found out that the new update for iOS, v4.3.2, has just been released hours ago. It has now fixed the crashing issue.

On a side note, however, the update doesn’t fix the Golden Eggs problem some users such as myself, @Rcheek17, @gavza, and @betrayed2010 are experiencing now. I’ll upload a pic of that later.

This is one of the first times I can say with a VERY high level of confidence that the Nest was responsible for this fix. Thanks to everyone who sent along their bug reports to us.

I lefty angry birds open all night. This morning the icon has changed to a RED icon. I wasn’t notified of any updates. I don’t want them. Now I can’t open angry birds at all. What happened?

So very disappointed. I can get to the main screen, but after that it crashes. It’s like a a very cruel tease. I’m glad I’m not alone with this irritating problem.

Actually, I posted too soon….what I did was turned off the wifi off my Ipod touch, and then started AB…then I let it ‘sit’ for like 3 minutes, and then presto it worked.

Lost 4years of angrybirds score when I tried to down load angrybirds red just wont load – been in touch with rovio but not optimistic of a solution – shame I was in the top ten percent of genuine players . Now I have nothing and will not start over so it’s goodbye I’m afraid !.

I doubt your scores are gone. Try downloading the newest version (v4.3.2) which was just released to address the crashing bug. Your scores should be safe, even of the app is crashing on startup.

You could also read our post, which includes instructions on how to backup your data.

New bug discovered concerning all the golden eggs; I use an iPad 2.

The first release of Red caused my iPad to crash back to the spring board….
Waited for the update and it fixed it (I guess) except for the Golden Eggs. I’m not sure what this new addition even provided. There does not appear to be any new levels, or anything. I had previously star’d all of the eggs, but now most of them are gone (like yours) or they are a star. I went ahead and re-star’d the eggs that were there. But… much for the ones that are gone.

I experienced that bug time ago. When connected to the Internet, my GE were there, along my highscores. But when offline, there were only the stars, and I had to find them AGAIN. When this update went out, I was surprised when my GE were there offline. I’m not sure if anyone experienced this but BEFORE this (RED) update.

By Thomas Traiforos

I think I had this bug when online, too…

How can I find the special red golden egg, once passed to Version 5? I’ve lost this special egg, during last Angry bird version 4. Now I’ve upgraded? What can I do? thanks

You should still have it on the second page of the golden egg episode.

By Daniele

Thanks for your help, but, sorry I do not understand. I didn’t unlock this golden eggs during the verion 4 (didn’t see the save lives page). Now I don’t really know how to find this egg.

By Mark

Angry Birds Golden Eggs (RED) isn’t available with newer updates ?
The way to get it is gone. Is there another way ? Or I’m I just stuck with only 32 golden eggs ?

By Alvin

I think so.I have version 7.0.0 and has 34 Golden Eggs.Two of them is from the Mighty League Stickers that you proberly don’t know.It does not appear on this version.I have iPad mini 3 and iOS 10.

By JadedNoble313

How can I access the red special level so I can have 33 golden eggs instead of 32… I am currently working on a android tablet running jellybean 4.0 running version 5.0 of AB:O

Is it available to me yet? I beat all the levels except surf and turf, 3 starred and all.

This level was only released on Apple devices.

By James

On, thx. Helps a lot

By parsa

How can i get this for android?

By James

Can you get the golden egg once the event is over? If so, how?

By Linda Moore

Did they eliminate the Red Special Golden Egg? I have an iPhone 6S+ and the only thing that is on the bottom of the episode screen is an ad for AB2. I had it on my iPads.

By Ander5

Could you make the special golden egg avaible on Android too?

@sal9 is the Golden Egg still obtainable on iOS, even after reinstalling the game? Had it a couple of years ago, but well, had to delete the game because it took up too much storage and now the Egg is no longer obtainable. Any luck?

By Denise Greenwood

How do I get the reds golden egg I have three stared every level except the egg defender which I also was looking for a walk through on sum of them ( haven’t been able to find one). I have 32 golden eggs now didn’t get one for getting all stars it just said to now get three stars in rest of levels ( which I did except egg defender) not sure if the reds egg is missing one an if it is I can’t get it . also can’t do the feathers ones either how do I do that too????

By Michael

I can’t seem to get the red egg after I got 3 stars in all levels I have a iPhone is there a different way to get it

By Celebii

Any possible way to still get the RED golden egg on newer versions (6.5.1)? I’m gonna flip some tables if the egg is no more available ><

By Ander5

You should revive the number of golden eggs in other mobile platforms, because I don’t have an IOS, I have 32 golden eggs found and I have another one locked until I enter In The Golden League of the Mighty League.

By Ander5

You should revice the list of Golden Eggs In other platform, because I don’t have an IOS, I have 32 golden Eggs in my list of golden eggs and is another one locked until I enter in the Golden League of the Mighty League.

For some reason when I logged into my Rovio Account on my Angry Birds game from my IPad (IOS) to my Android Phone, I had somehow hacked the Red Bird Golden Egg into my Android version of Angry Birds. Very Weird on how that happened but I am not complaining about a special golden egg!

By Ander5

I think that’s What happened to me too, because I started the game in an IPhone and continued in Android. But it didn’t appear until the day I posted I got it.
