The solution to your Mustang isses! Updated June 5, 2010

After several days of playing with the mustang links we've realized it was much easier just to hack the settings themselves than to manipulate the link. But the answers I'm about to provide some of you won't like. In addition this post is for information only your use of such information is at your own risk. I nor take any responsibility of your use. This site nor I are affiliated or associated with the owners of the game "farmville or z*ynga. All original photos, images and articles are copyright to their respective owners and no copyright infringement is intended. THIS IS A HACK!!! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

If you was able to successful load the old item hack you will be able to repeat those steps with this file. They are the same except this file won't get you any goodies. It's intention is only to help with the mustang or get rid of the notice so. that you can get a new one without waiting 3 days. Our success rate was 75% on this so, if it don't work don't come complaining to me. The one time we wasn't successful was when the mustang was actually disabled by z*nga so we are pretty sure that's why we wasn't successful. keep that in mind when doing the following steps.


The following instructions are to be preformed with either firefox or flock browser for best results:

Step 1: Clear your cache! (To do this click on tools>options>advance>network) Click clear then apply.

Step 2: Open 2 tabs in the first open your farm. After the farm loads open a new tab enter about:cache in the address bar.

Step 3: Go here and download this file do not select a program to open with pick the second option save as if you open the file it decompresses and will nto work.

New Update! June 5 2010

Step 4: Return to the about:cache tab You will see 3 sections "Memory cache device,Disk cache device,Offline cache device" You need to click on " List Cache Entries" in the Disk Cache section. The link should be the color blue.

Step 5: Click on Edit on your browser then "find " on the drop down. type in gameSettings.xml.gz
Look for a line similar to this :
file on disk:
C:\Users\johndoe\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\t977azle.default\Cache\C5275997d01 <-----
in this case the file name will be C5275997d01 <-----copy this , find the file you downloaded and move on to step 6.

Step 6: rename the "stangfix" file to the file name you copied from the file path. Example: (C5275997d01)

Step 7: Go back to the tab you typed in "about:cache" copy everything (filepath) you see before that file name: Example:( C:\Users\John Doe\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\t977azle.default\Cache)

Step 8: Click on your start menu and find computer click it and enter the file path into the addy bar.

Step 9: Find the file you renamed again and copy the whole file go to the computer tab and paste it. It should ask you if you want to replace the file click copy and replace.

Step 10:refresh your farm. Shortly you will see a popup that tells you the time has expired for you to get help with the mustang. Then it will give you two choices to pay farmcash Fv 20. Or less depending if you got any help at all. Or to cancel. If you want to buy the mustang then click buy if not click cancel. if you chose to buy it go onto step 11 if not just clear your cache and wait for the next mustang to show up.

Step 11: If you buy the mustang with farmcash. It will go to your gift box.Soon as you confirm it's there clear your cache. Refresh your farm. Then place it! Make sure you clear your cache before placing it on your farm. ***********Note * this is where I had my failure in keeping the mustang that resulted in me losing 20 farmcash!!!*** So make sure you are very careful at this point. .

Sorry about not being able to produce a free way of getting it but for now this is the best solution we have. And if you decide to cancel it it's better than waiting 3 days for it to expire.

Hope this helps some of you all. See ya on the forums or the farm.

~~I am tempted by more than average gameplay~~~

Work around offered by Amber Whorton :

The mustang is semi-working now. I have four of them. I took email access away from FV and they try to tease me with a mustang to give it up lol. I just hit cancel about three times a day then they tell me to send it to my friends. So I send it to my daughters account, my husbands, mothers, sisters, niece, and maybe a few others if I feel motivated. I log onto my daughters email and out of FB then click help in the email. Since I have the password to all of these FB accounts I log on and help in one, then log out, close the window, then click help friend, and log into another account until I have helped five times.
