I have followed this guide* on a rooted S5 Neo with android version 7.0, security patch August 1, 2017, Magisk manager 20.4 and 7.5.1 and Smali patcher 0.0.6.9. I am still getting rubber banding. Have adjusted the location settings to GPS only, disabled improve location accuracy. Am using the paid version of FakeGPS Route, which is also on the specified settings including expert mode with disabled fused location service. Does anyone have any other troubleshooting advice for how to stop rubber banding? I have followed every step, looked at youtube guides, been to XDA Developers etc. Really have tried my best to use due diligence before resorting to posting a comment for assistance.
Basically, I completed Method 2 of rooting my phone (rooted method with Magisk), found there was way too much rubber banding, decided to follow this guide for Method 3 and it's the exact same. This is really frustrating. The only two things I have noticed is that when I go into developer settings and select mock location app, then set it to FakeGPS Route, I exit out and go back into developer settings and there is no app selected. Maybe this has something to do with it? I have no idea. The second thing is that when I am in my basement I don't have any issues with rubber banding. Is this a coincidence? Isn't Smali supposed to apply a patch to hide mock location status with signature spoofing? Seems odd to me.
If anyone can provide any further explanation or information it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
