I've seen a few threads asking if it is posible to get this working on a rooted S3 so thought I'd share how I got it running. This appears to ONLY work with Barclays apps!

Software Needed:

ES File Explorer (free from Play Store)
Barclays Mobile Banking / Pingit (also free from the Play Store)

Steps:

1: Open ES Explorer options and make sure you enable 'Up to Root' & 'Root Explorer'.
2: Navigate to '/system/xbin/' and long press on 'SU' and select 'Hide' from the menu.

NOTE: if you update the SuperSU binary, you will need to do step 2 again!

That's it! No more messing around. You don't need to touch anything else before or after you open the app like temp unroot/hide root. I dont know if Barclays can solve that with an update so I don't plan on updating the app. I'm not a coder and don't know a lot about the technical details of Android so if you run in to problems I can only TRY to help you.

Thanks.

Ive been using this for a few days now but just started having FC's.

I just re- enabled the permission and rebooted and it's working again.

I've just downloaded SkyGo and the app opens and I get to the TV guide and get the option to watch it of I sign in. I don't have Sky so can't test any further.

I'm assuming it checks for root when it opens so I'd class that as a success!

Glad it works.

Did you do all the steps or just hide the su file?

I dont have this app. But tried for sky go.

I dont see Su as per step 4.

I also obviously skipped the first steps. But did do step 3.

Fyi. When u play a channel is when u get error for root.

Supersu.

Sky go has baffled many. They seem to have beaten us!
