Connect 4 (WP)On a RollThe On a Roll achievement in Connect 4 (WP) worth 32 pointsWin 5 matches in a row against NORMAL or EXPERT AI.

Aside above it might work for
Connect 4 (WP)EconomistThe Economist achievement in Connect 4 (WP) worth 6 pointsBeat the AI within ten moves in a quick game.
but I’m not sure about that one.

Now the actual solution: If you’re going for the difficulty related ones then change the difficulty to Medium/Hard first. Now go to Single Player>Pop Out and play until you are 1 turn away from winning. After you play the winning turn and your phone is done vibrating from the win but before it will load a new game press the home button. Now load up the game again (through the original place and not a pinned shortcut as this won’t load properly). There is a tiny chance the game backs out right after but you can just try it again and it should load the game. The game will say you have a pending game and asks you to continue. Say yes and you’re at your turn before you won. Just play the same move and it will count as a win. The timer also resets upon the reboot thus making the Genius achievement pop. Since the timer resets I think the ammount of turns also resets which should unlock Economist as well but I’m not sure on this one.

Using this method has like no risk of crashing the game/phone and is faster than the other solution in my experience. You can check your progress through Single Player>My Stats to see how many you have left to get. If you have any questions post below and I’ll reply to them as soon as possible.
