Default [Q] TV 2 Sumo app on root

So I live in Norway and there is a TV channel there which have just released an android app to watch their shows.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...id=no.tv2.sumo

The sad thing is an error pops up when I try to stream videos saying it won't work on a rooted device(which my Note 2 is). I tried following the
guide for HBO nordic (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2057765) but I couldn't find the function that would be similar to checkRoot() . Is there anyone who has an idea on how to find it?

I also have this problem. According to this (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=258) post you can watch videos on stock ROMs using rootcloak, but since the TV2 Sumo app uses kernel detection to discover modified devices this doesn't work on AOSP ROMs. I would really like to stick with CM, so I hope someone can dive into the code and make a modified .apk or a guide on how to do so. Thanks in advance!

I've managed to modify the DRM checks so that the app works fine on custom ROMs. More info here or here.

Enjoy.
Im here to make awesome stuff happen!
