As some of you may know, NFL mobile recently implemented a check to prevent rooted users from using their app..

Upon loading the app, you would get an ugly message saying that the NFL mobile app could be only be installed on "unmodified" devices. Now what business does a football league have in telling me what I can or can't do with my phone?!?

Now I don't even watch football, much less follow it, but I did this really quick for @hamagc and I decided I would share with you all sports fans

Well that was quick... Guessing it was a simple root check that needed editing out? When/if this app gets updated on the play store are you gonna update this one? :fingers crossed:

Of course, it was extremely easy to do

It took longer to decompile it than the edit did

This is pseudocode, but this is what the check was like:

isRoot = getRootStatus()

if (isRoot = false) is a true statement
---run like normal
else
---block access

I changed the "if" check to always be true (I made it check if isRoot equals isRoot, which will always be true, duhh) and I made the getRootStatus invocation always return false just in case it was called elsewhere

Thanks again for the apk.
Quick favour - If you could quickly in a sentence or two describe what and how you decompiled the apk and then recompiled it, I'd really appreciate it. I'd like to be able to learn how to do this myself. Thanks!
