So yea, Sky go now has support finally for the Nexus 4 and jellybean!!! but it doesnt work on rooted phones , even using temp unroot, it still sees at i am rooted..

So any way around this?
And if not, can i just unroot and flash root when i need it

Looks like stock only at the moment unless someone patches the apk

Ok so i did something kinda strange, but its working...

I uninstalled root using the full uninstall root in the SuperUS app

I then restored root with temunroot in the otaroatkeeper app,

Now i dont have Super SU, but iv verified root using apps and also sky go is working!

The only issue is now it just gives apps root access that want it . it doesn't bother asking me obviously because the app is no longer there..

But that surely means sky go is looking for supersu apk

So iv got it to work ...

1) ota rootkeeper temp unroot
2) superSU app and use Full uninstall ( This deletes SuperSU apk)
3) back to otarootkeeper and restore root
4) tested root using root checker ... says rooted but no SuperSU app as you can see from the pic
5) tested sky go... works on every channel

Now i tested root with titanium and root checker, both say rooted, HOWEVER, both dont ask for permisson to use root, as the APP is gone, so it seems to just grant it access automatically ( could be risky)

Also iv noticed that if im currently in rooted mode, i.e not tempunrooted in otaroot keeper, and the app reloads, i get the your rooted error , please kindly F off..

If i temp unroot and make sure the ap reloads again, i get Sweat apple pie!

have you tried disabling the superuser app whilst using sky go? that might be a good way to go

i bet it's a matter of changing a string that looks like "check for root" true to false. Or maybe not....

Lol i dont think its that easy...

its been a problem for ages, basically if your on a custom kernel or rom my method doesnt work.. so it obviously checks a few things rather than just the presence of the superuser.apk
