Default [Q] Root DRM Trick?

Hello,

I've been helping a friend with her Tab 2 p5110 (Wi-Fi model).
Late last year I rooted it and installed CyanogenMod (10.1.3 Stable).
It's much better than the bloated original rom, however one of her primary uses of the tablet was to watch TV shows from catch-up apps, now of which at least one isn't working.
It's Plus7 - that of the Seven Network in Australia.
It says something about it not being able to work on rooted or modified devices for copyright reasons.
I may not have searched enough or properly, but I was wondering if there's any way you can trick the app into believing it's using the original firmware, or has the rights restrictions it requires to work properly, on a rooted device?
I would hate to have go back to the Samslow rom...

Many thanks,
Tom

There's a module for the Xposed framework that will hide root, but I'm not sure if it'll work on the app you have. It would be worth a try.

Thanks, sounds like it's probably RootCloak.
There's also been a version released recently using the Cydia substrate.
I'll try them soon and see how it goes.

Ya, that's it. Hope it works for you. I hate app developers that feel the need to block the mod community.
