    I am now on my second run with the harp freeze. Both times it came after I got the donut game for level 26 Xp bonus.

    Both times I managed to get out of it with my iPhone 5. I just ran it and tapped on it to keep the window active. The first time I got the lovely donut glitch, but the second time I got one extra run at the donut game and it started like normal.

    Tried it about 50-60 times now on my iPhone 4S and iPad Mini since Sunday. No success.

    I'm really pissed I can't convert my hearts. They will all be gone soon... :(

    Got the freeze last night on my iphone 4s after completing el Chemistri and leveling up. I finished the play session fine, but was locked out when I tried to re-enter later that night. Tried letting the locked startup run for ~15 mins like others have had success with, but so far I've only seen the program crash after that time.

    The only upside; after reading the forums I planned ahead for the freeze, just in case it happened, and spent all of the hearts I earned up until last night.

    Got the harp freeze this morning.. Sucks I was in the middle of converting some open space to convert the Muntz house tire yard and car into a junk yard..

    Sent a ticket in so hopefully it gets resolved soon.. Not holding my breath after reading this thread SMDH

    Finally swallowed my pride, and filled out their tedious request for more info that I already gave them. Now My support request has been escalated to the next department (where it will probably gather dust for another week).

    Everyone should start emailing Apple to get this bugged rubbish of the App Store..
    hit them in the pockets and they might actually do something about it


    But its unlikely i guess

    I am now on day 10 of my freeze out ( no access to a iPhone 5 ) and looking at the results of this poll It is interesting in that if this is a good sampling then about 3/4 of people who reach the bonus level up in level 26 get the freeze for some period of time

    I've built chemistrie and wiggam house and I'm fine (iPad 3). They keep shrinking my Xperia - twice I was 5,000 short of 120,000 and then they knocked me down so I would think it has more to do with hitting the bonus level. Kind of wish I could get harp freeze. I'd definitely trade a week or two off for a bunch of donuts.

    Yeah, I just had this happen. Finished Wiggam's house which put me at a little over 100k exp. Visited some friends and came back to 86k exp. Luckily I play on an iPhone 5 so I'm not too worried about the Harp bug.

    I was able to try the iphone 5 fix. I normally play on an iPad 4.
    After letting it sitt for 15-20 minutes it finally let me in on the iPhone.
    It then entered the bonus donut screen, over and over and over and over

    Luckily I set my 5 year old on it: "Look daddy, MORE donuts!" About 650
    donuts later the iPhone froze. At this point I killed it and logged into the
    iPad. Got one more donut game on the iPad and then things were back
    to normal!

    You'd think they'd be able to fix this more quickly. Or at least keep us updated. The silence is the worst part.

    2 days ago I voted that the Harp Freeze hadn't affected my game. Of course, that all changed this morning. I've tried all the suggestions that don't include using an IPhone 5 since I don't have access to one, so now I'm going to suffer with all of you, the frustration of paying money for a game that does not work. Never should have bought them damn donuts. My doctor told me to cut back on the sweets.
