New Angry Birds levels

There are only a handful of things I like to be awakened by on a Saturday morning. One is the wife and kids. Another is a giant pile of pancakes. And a third is a massive update to Angry Birds, one that brings 30 new levels to the uber popular game. And such was the case this morning, as we now have "Ham 'Em High" to keep us occupied.

Go ahead and get your update on, or hit up the download link after the break if you've yet to play. And now, to go find those pancakes ...

Update: You might well have noticed that the app now says it needs/has permission to access your SMS messages. The developer, Rovio Mobile, tells us on Twitter that it "Must be a mistake in some permission file. Will get it sorted on Monday."

When are they going to bring updates to the PC Version?

yobif says:

Hi,

Is this 30 level is for free or paid version.

El Jefe says:

There is no paid version on Android.

brendanl79 says:

Only 15 new levels - we already had The Big Setup.

El Jefe says:

We did already have The Big Setup, but there are more than 15 levels in this new update. It looks like 20 are available now & 10 more "coming soon".

keanhong says:

Good to see the SMS update... I'm not going to a new version until they fix this BUG!!!

planoman says:

To bad the ads get in the way of playing the game. Much better on the ipad!

Reverend Ink says:

Root then AdFree. No more ads. Worked on my HD2, my wife's G2, and the Nook Color.

Is Angry Birds getting a Superbowl commercial? Look at what's recently changed, "Watch the Rio Movie Commercial during the Super Bowl to find a hidden clue which unlocks a special level of Angry Birds!"

joshua.worth says:

Uh yeah dudethe site your posting on covered that yesterday..

mfs4s says:

My phone notified me that there was an update available. I uploaded it, but no near levels appeared. It appeared to download, but it never asked me if I wanted to install it. Now when I went back to the market, it said AB was available to "install." I chose that, and nothing happened! HELP!!!

mfs4s says:

Oops. I meant to say: I updated Angry BIrds, but no *new* levels appeared.

mfs4s says:

Also, when you update, do you lose all your previous scores from the levels you've beaten?

puck7 says:

no you dont!

JNM says:

Why does this update need so many new permissions I do not trust applications that ask for this much if they have no valid reason to access the demanded information.

Phone state and identity? Receive and read SMS and MMS? Send SMS? They need to explain why. I installed the first version but I won't be trying this out until they explain how this "mistake" came about...and then fix it.

mfs4s says:

I just downloaded the udpate and it showed progress under notifications, but when it reached 100% it disappeared from notifications and gave me no notice of being "installed." When I open angry birds now, it does not include any updates. Does anyone know what I can do?

I want to avoid uninstalling the game, because I've already completed all levels, besides the new Ham em High.

joshua.worth says:

Try shutting down you device then pull out the battery put it back in. Idk though. I updated without issue

daxxMan says:

The update only shows up for me in appbrain so when
I try to update thru that it says request could not be found.
Will I get the update?

wjrandon says:

I have zero interest in updating to this version with the developers seeking permission to access to send SMS messages from my device as well as read existing SMS messages. That's one hell of a careless mistake to make.

I urge others not to upgrade until the SMS access permissions issue is resolved.

Fyrmedic654 says:

so this also fixes the bug with these 17th golden egg. I have to day tho, people freaking out about the sms bug. They addressed it and said it's a mistake and will fix it.

motoprof says:

Airplane mode = No ads

mdwalker80 says:

Or just turn your mobile internet off to have no ads appear, that way you can still receive calls/texts while playing, unlike airplane mode.

Zardos says:

I wish they would just offer a paid version. Just take my money.

spectator52 says:

where is the mighty eagle?

mcbowersox says:

Why can't I get this update? It's not showing for me in the market. I set it to automatically update, but it hasn't. I'd really like to get these new levels!

I have a TMobile My Touch Slide.
