Why is this better than "Google Videos with Root Check Disabled"
"Google Videos with Root Check Disabled" Apk located at SDX

They edit the apk so it looks for the wu instead of su. I have used it but when I used I tend to download my movies so i can play them when im offline.


The advantage of doing that is so they movie does not stop every 30 min to buffer if your on a bad connection.


Why this is a bad way
So downloaded a movie with SDX modified version (1.2.13) Watched the move half way throw... Stopped because I picked a boring movie
Then I download and install the new modified version (1.2.14) and when I tried to play the movie it gave me an Error saying "the following video has been download onto another device"...

But the thing is it was the same device!

Also this works with the Blockbuster app and any other app that looks for root access and if present say sorry you cant use me.

Not Compatible with Nook (CM7)
Just wondering why you don't post the apk here on the thread. It is coming up as not compatible with my NookColor and HTC Inspire on the PC link of the market.

So can we get some instructions on what to do?

I'm assuming download and install google videos first, then download and install this. Then click su to mu. Then what? Do you still have to pay for movie rentals? I don't understand the point of this program/app.

You still have to pay for movies and such (thank goodness these devs aren't trying to bypass the DRM, last thing XDA needs is devs getting caught up in legal issues)

But it simply makes google videos believe that your phone isn't rooted.

Quick work around is to change dpi to 240 in the build.prop reboot and it will let you dl apps that are phone only on tablets.

Darn, you stole my thunder

I made a script for this last week and was planning on turning it into an app.

Oh well, I salute you and your quick work. Though my script automatically detected where SU was, whether it is named MU, and adjusted accordingly with no extra input from the user needed.

Thanks for the great app, but as long as you use "Airpush", it's not going on my phone. Sorry
