Warning: DO NOT UPDATE Pokemon GO If you have Rooted/JailBroken Android and if you did, here is the solution!
Everyone’s super excited about the new Buddy System update … besides the rooted android users.
What A Rooted Device Is.
Let me explain what a rooted device is, Rooting is a process that allows you to attain root access to the Android operating system code (the equivalent term for Apple devices id jailbreaking). It gives you privileges to modify the software code on the device or install other software that the manufacturer wouldn’t normally allow you to.
So let me get this straight, the Pokemon Go App after the recent update will not work on any device that is rooted, the app won’t open. And don’t worry we have a solution for this too!
(Before you spread any hate to these users, these users are less fortunate and do not have the newer devices that we do, so they are required to use developer options in order to actually play the game. These are not the same users that are GPS spoofing, rather people who’ve been attacked in the cross-fire due to having to use similar methods. This is Niantics method of eliminating GPS spoofers)
