Staying online 24x7 in King of Thieves - Android Auto Touch

less than 1 minute read

This would be my first “own hack” for a game / app. I guess this is the kind of the things one would do when they are insomniac and hooked onto something.

The hack

This involves interacting with the game in an automated manner - basically touch something on the screen periodically. I wrote a simple script that does exactly this using Android Debug Bridge. Yes, this is only for Android.

while true; do
adb shell input tap 1024 1076
sleep 3
adb shell input tap 945 812
sleep 3

How to use?

  1. Install Android Debug Bridge on PC
  2. Enable USB Debugging on phone and connect to PC
  3. Run the script and goto sleep :)


You can also choose your own touch points. Just enable ```Developer options –> pointer location” and launch King of Thieves to find the touch point co-ordinates for lines 2 and 4 in the script.
