Do i see it right that i can't fake fingerprints because the Google services are missing?
Unfortunately the login via Facebook does not work anymore. Thanks

Same: is it possible to play PoGo without Google Services? Thanks

You need them.

There was just a new pokemon version released and I keep getting "device is not compatible" message.. Updated all of Magisk, disabled and enabled pokemon go in Magisk Hide but no luck.

Anyone else? I checked my root for Magisk files too

Did you hide Magisk in the settings too? (Give it another app name etc.)

I've had Magisk for a while and yesterday I updated my Pokemon Go version. The new update bombs out a lot, and only then I started fiddling around. Sometimes resetting the "Magisk Hide" works fine, but this time it didn't.

Magisk is up to date (as of yesterday)
Magisk Manager is up to date (as of maybe a week ago)
Pokemon Go and all the services are hidden and rehidden a few times
Magisk has a different name (in the settings it says that I can only "restore" it, so I guess that confirms it).

Are you maybe able to verify on your side if its working? (not sure if you are a Pokemon player)

Yeah, I'm a player. My setup is as follows:
Pogo: 0.165.2
Magisk/Magisk Manager: 20.3 / 7.5.1

Pogo is hidden completely (including all sub options) in Magisk Hide.
Magisk is hidden in Magisk Settings with the default name "Manager", and only the restore option you mentioned currently showing.

I'm on a Note 4 (N910F) with a Lineage based custom ROM (see my signature for more details).

The only things I can think of are
1. try an earlier Magisk version
2. try enabling "core only" mode in Magisk Settings

I have briefly tried the second option ages ago, and back then I don't think it helped me with my problem, but I've heard from other people that they got Pogo to work with an earlier Magisk version. However, not sure if this only works with specific setups and/or phones. (By the way, renaming the root related folders/files never made a difference for me, it was just annoying after a while.)

You aren't running the latest PoGo version.. The issue came with 0.167..

Someone messaged me on reddit saying TWRP folder on root is locking people out. I had the folder there (it was empty) so I guess I should try again to update.

Here is the link: https://www.reddit.com/r/pokemongode...s_permissions/

Ah, interesting, thank you! I'm updating the Pogo apk files regularly, but it seems my site isn't as up-to-date as I thought.
Good luck with the workaround, let us know if you get it to run!

They can't scan the camera folder, the exploit only works to check if a file or folder exists on the root of the external storage

Either way it should be something they get a strike or ban for doing but won't be, because they're too big and Google have shares in Niantic.

I have not had issues on my lg v20 yet it has both offending programs as well as magisk this definitely needs to be reported to google if pogo wants to look at my files it better be requesting that permission. I was pissed they hit magisk if they are going to hit twrp and titanium backup niantec can go to hell...
