grrrrr I used to have this barclays app working (Galaxy S3 on Slim Rom) and now for some reason it keeps giving me the 'this app won't work on rooted devices' error and I can't get onto it. I'm not sure what changed..... I might have been using it when I was on CM10 and when I went onto Slim Rom (which works much better for me) the problem started. But I hadn't used the barclays app in a while so I'm not sure exactly when it stopped working. I've tried every single method in this thread (despite the very first post USED to work for me) ...and none of them work now. I'm stuck. SO frustrating. I'm not even sure having root access is worth it now as this app is very useful for me.

Any way to 'un root' your phone? Or does that happen as part of a new rom? I can't even remember now lol... I've been out of this game a while.

Yes, it's different for me. The reinstall option worked fine, it fully removed itself.

I'm now on an International S III (I'd had enough of HTC's crappy build quality/problems) and, using the same method as I explained before, it worked a treat.

Step by step:
  1. Open SuperSU.
  2. Tap "SETTINGS".
  3. Scroll down until you see "Reinstall". Underneath "Reinstall" it should say "Cleanup for reinstallation from Google Play"
  4. Tap "Reinstall"
  5. It'll show a confirmation box. Tap "Continue"
  6. The app should close, and the SuperSU icon should disappear from your Apps list.
  7. Install SuperSu from Google Play as you would any other app.
Just as a note, when you first run the reinstalled SuperSU, it will show a message saying that the binary needs updating. I have always let it install the update.

The Barclays Banking and Pingit apps should now work and register without any problems. This includes using the latest version of both apps and SuperSU.

I tried this with my Galaxy Nexus when I had PA 4.2 on it, which had SuperSU. I've just changed to CM10.1, which uses Superuser, installed the app and it doesn't seem to detect that I'm rooted. But now I'm not getting the SMS verification text, and when I click resend it says error in connection and force closes. Any ideas?

I had MAJOR issues trying to get the Barclays App to work nicely with Superuser, so in the end I gave up and tried SuperSU, which worked a treat. I'd highly recommend dumping Superuser and installing SuperSU, which may help.

Just make sure you un-install it properly, Superuser should have an option in its settings which will clean the phone properly (like SuperSU does), or you'll run into all sorts of problems.

Previous Phones: HTC One S (Rooted, ViperOneS), Sony Xperia S (Stock), HTC Desire HD (Rooted, ARHD), iPhone 3GS (JailBroken), iPhone 3G (JailBroken), O2 XDA (Hacked), Motorola Razr, loads of Nokias & some Alcatel crap.

Current:
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S III (GT-I9300)
Network: O2 UK
ROM: ArchiDroid 2.1.7 (4.3)
Recovery: TWRP 2.6.1.0
Kernel: temasek's Kernel

Well superuser doesn't have the option to remove itself and I suppose I can't just delete the apk. Any one know how to properly remove so superuser?

Yeah as soon as I start using supersu the app just says it doesn't work on rooted devices and closes, even after doing the reinstall trick. With superuser it would get to the SMS screen but mess up there..

Thanks for the detailed walk through. However it would seem my phone has been cursed from working with this app

Got toreinstall, it closed the app but the app was still in the app list
So i tried the store and i had an option to update which i didnt do
Restarted the phone, went to the app and got a prompt to update. Clicked yes and then tried to reinstall to avail. IT no longer closed the app

I am running aokp m1 4.2
Any ideas?

I followed these instructions on my Nexus 4 and it now works after weeks of error code 99999

Thanks!
