Root is required.
1) Download your favorite SQL editor. I use SQLite Editor.
2) Open and grant root access.
3) Scroll down and find Settings Storage
4) Choose settings.db (duh)
5) Go down to line 65 and change the value for entitlement check from 1 to 0.
Historically this has stuck through updates as the databases don't change when you update.
Thank you jcase for root!
