RootCloak Plus (Cydia)

RootCloak Plus (Cydia)


Many apps detect rooted phones (banking, enterprise, streaming), and upon detection, do not run. RootCloak Plus hides all indications of root, thereby enabling those apps to run, without disabling root.

PLEASE READ EVERYTHING AND EMAIL OR POST ON XDA BEFORE LEAVING A NEGATIVE REVIEW!
There is no 100% way to hide root. Any feedback you may have will be helpful, not only for fixing your particular issue, but also for hiding root from future apps!

See http://devadvance.com/rootcloakplus/ for the list of apps that work with RootCloak Plus.
If the app is not listed as working, then I cannot guarantee that it works! Apps that currently do not work include:
Sky Go
Puzzles and Dragons


Requirements:
• Rooted Device
• Android v4.0.3+
• Cydia Substrate ( http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.saurik.substrate )
• If you are on Android 4.4+ (Kitkat), you need to install SELinux Mode Changer and set it to PERMISSIVE: ( http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mrbimc.selinux )
• Single user on the device (does NOT currently support devices with more than one user account!)

Does NOT Support:
• x86 (Intel) devices
• Devices with multiple user accounts


How is this different than disabling root with temp unroot/SuperSu unroot/etc?
Disabling root, or temporarily unrooting, prevents ALL applications from using root. This includes the applications that require root to function. In addition, SuperSu (and others) cannot hide themselves, and are still detected by many apps. RootCloak does not disable root; it completely hides all traces of being rooting, including the su binary, some of busybox, superuser.apk/most common superuser control apps, and more.


Does RootCloak hide custom ROMs (CM, AOKP, etc)?
Not directly. Some apps that check for root only check for things like release-keys vs test-keys, and therefore RootCloak will work. However, if you are running CM, AOKP, or any other custom ROM, there are simply too many ways to detect a custom for RootCloak to effectively hide all of them. For example, addition settings activities may be added/removed depending on the AOKP version; RootCloak would have to hide every single one to be 100% effective.


Instructions:
1) If you are on Android 4.4+ (KitKat), you need to install SELinux Mode Changer and set it to PERMISSIVE: ( http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mrbimc.selinux )
2) Install Cydia Substrate. You must install it, then open the app and Link Substrate Files, then reboot!
3) Install RootCloak Plus.
4) Reboot your device to enable RootCloak Plus. Substrate will probably tell you to do so.
5) Open RootClock Plus settings (just open the app from the launcher), and then go to Add/Remove. This is where you will change which apps RootCloak hides root from.
6) If the app you want is not among the default apps, press the + button to add it. Find the app in the list, and press it to add it to the list.
7) To apply changes, you MUST reboot your device!
8) Run the app to see if root was successfully hidden.

Does not hide it from Air Watch I wanted to use this just because Air Watch detects root status on my device. After following all the steps to install this app today, Air Watch still detects root access. Air Watch was listed under "Apps Successfully Tested".

Works for my bank app Remember to manually select your app if its not already in the pre-populated list then reboot when first setting up. As another user mentions you should still always disable SuperUser before each attempt to use your Banking app - just re-enable afterwards. Its a bit clunky but hardly a huge inconvenience. Remember to install CydiaSubstrate first BTW.
