Ok, so Netease caught on to everything, and put a stop to all of our shenanigans. None of this would be a problem if they just released an english version. I doubt that will happen anytime soon though.

~~~EDIT~~~
Fildo.net is probably the best alternative. They have a decent android app, and it uses the music from Netease, I believe. Check it out!

But I mean, in the event that you are a stubborn bastard and refuse to quite Netease, there might be a way to get around their block. The following was taken from a comment on page 15 by ItsJono. Good luck!

-----------------
From what I understand, the NetEase translation development was forked into two different projects, the one here is for NON-ROOT people who do not have access to root/xposed installer. This uses a modified APK with modified files that NetEase has begun detection for tampering. The second version, is the one for ROOT/Xposed which i'm installing now. The Xposed version is better since it translates the file on the fly in memory versus having a pre-modified APK so that NetEase can update itself and not break translation.

Edit: Okay, the Xposed version of NetEase + Translation Xposed Module + English translation = Works again!

The link to follow is here: http://superdevs.weebly.com/netease-cloud-music.html

I didn't want to do this before because it looked confusing and hard, especially with so much of the information being in Spanish but it turned out to be quite easy. I'll give a quick overview of what I did to help those who want a clearer, native English description of how to do it. The first link was very helpful with it having been translated from Spanish, and while the English was good, it was clear it wasn't their first language and I want to help those who might be a little iffy as to what the process is:

[How to Install Xposed version of NetEase]

Q: Why install Xposed version of NetEase, versus the pre-translated APK located in this thread?
A: The pre-translated APK of NetEase offered by @omarchavez/XDA: omare.chavez is great for users who do NOT have root access on their device. However, it is prone to "breaking" from NetEase's hash check of APK from what my Android developer friend explains as a possibility. The Xposed version allows you to have the latest official NetEase APK installed without having to wait for an updated APK to show up. Xposed version also allows quick corrections in typos in the translation files, whereas it would require a rebuild of the translated APK, of which, the primary developers are Spanish and English translation is not their primary concern.

Q: I don't have root access, which version should I download?
A: The version you should download is the one offered by @omarchavez / XDA: omare.chavez. Download and install Telegram from Google Play Store and use your phone to visit this address: https://telegram.me/neteaseES , then subscribe to his channel so you can receive the latest developments and download the latest APK version of pre-translated NetEase.

Before Install: Have root access, and Xposed installed so you can install the Xposed module that translates the program, without breaking the functionality of NetEase

1.) Install AndroTraductor Xposed module, enable it in Xposed, reboot (?) /// Or follow instructions here: http://superdevs.weebly.com/androtraductor.html
2.) Install latest NetEase APK directly from NetEase, http://music.163.com/api/android/download/latest
3.) Download the translation files:
English - http://www.mediafire.com/download/c6...#91;b_1.0].zip
Spanish - https://mega.co.nz/#!GRlCVRID!vyQlET...smSTKzeDbQ5ncs
Spanish 2 - https://userscloud.com/8c66tzcqb8eh

...and then create a folder in your Android device's root directory named "dv_translate", and extract the contents of the translation zip file that you downloaded in your language so that the file structure looks like the images shown in the link.

http://superdevs.weebly.com/uploads/...62598_orig.png

Reboot device and load up NetEase, the app should have some text translated in your language that you downloaded. Images cannot be translated as they would require modification of the .APK contents and would fail the hash check when NetEase checks for modification.


[How to register for Weibo/NetEase account]

Q: Why should I register an account?
A: You can use NetEase as a Guest but miss out features by not having an account. Having an account allows you to have unlimited 320KB/s quality MP3 song downloads, save your favorite songs, create playlists, etc. I would definitely recommend it. It's also not very hard and is a very simple process.

-

1.) To register a NetEase account, go here: http://reg.163.com/reg/reg.jsp?product=music
2.) Use the follow image or Google translate to help you. http://superdevs.weebly.com/uploads/...png?1434101457
*Please note that the image here has a small mistake, the first red arrow on top where it says "Username" is supposed to be your email. I believe you'll be prompted later to choose a NetEase username handle.
3.)Log in NetEase using the information you put and enjoy!

I would like to merge my work with yours

Hi,

nice work! I have also started translating this app, and i would like to merge some fixes into your version.
Is there a github or something where i can contribute?

Cheers.

I constantly get a notification to update the app. I read somewhere that I should not take the update because it will revert back to Chinese. Is this correct?

Is it really everytime you reopen the app? Cause then it looks like I found a workaround for that, not sure yet but I didn't have a notification since 9+ hours

Yes it was every time I opened the app. I am now using the one that is in the link I provided and I do not have that problem anymore. Hopefully this version gets that fixed as well.

I recommend you to stay with this one as the translation is a lot better.
Right now, to FIX the update notification (might also be implemented by OP in the next version) you need a rooted device and a root browser app.

Goto data/data/com.netease.cloudmusic/shared_prefs/UpdateInfo.xml



I THINK the integer value versionCode is used for the update check (versionCode < serverVersion) - simply increase the value to a lot higher one, I used 99 - no update notification on startup.

With this, I didn't have a notification since 24h, I guess that's a fix for it.


EDIT: got an update notification after 48h.

Haha. I was going to say, wow, that is a clever way of fixing it. I'll relay this info over to the guy working on it and see what we can do. No promises though. :)

Just a quick update - we are waiting for a new version of apktool to be released that apparently should fix the problem we are running into. Once this is released, we'll hopefully be able to update it. :)

Cm security flagged this app as containing a Trojan virus. I'd highly recommend staying away from this app

Antivirus programs are stupid. I guess CM security doesn't like the permissions that the app requires, but personally I don't think this contains a trojan, it's a really huge company in China.
(Allthough you can never be sure, in the past, there were several reports of highly popular smartphones on the chinese market that contained maleware by default)

    Well that sucks. Was it that specific version that was blocked, or could you just use a different version of a translated copy?

    download this xposed module that I found in cool market and here is the link to github.
    Link:
    https://github.com/bin456789/Unblock163MusicClient-Xposed

    the apk file is somewhere in that page, you can find it in 'release' page.
    enable the module, and start the app, then enable 'oversea mode'



    then you can download the songs even is need premium account and outside mainland china.

    SOLUTION !

    Hello. I am Omar. Netease translator in Spanish. I currently support (along with my team HTCMania) to the app, with great improvements. The application includes English language that has been contributed by another user, but it works without requiring update. No more mandatory update notification, being "non-root". Follow the channel telegram and get the latest APK MOD, by this means you will be giving support on the app. regardless of language.
    telegram.me/neteaseES

    @ OmarChavez . My telegram account
    Saludos! :good:

    Edit: Now it has some errors in the translation, which will be fixed in the next update of APK MOD. Stay tuned to the channel telegram when the update is ready.

    Back again?! :)

    So hello guys at this forum post,
    im the dev from superdevs, so I will release a new translation update but i have one big problem at the moment.
    I can't extract the strings.xml and arrays.xml from the apk from music.163.com, every try to extract failed.
    If someone is here and can extract me these 2 files I can proceed my work and a new update get released.

    The next big thing is that I see there is a Dev who reached the cracking of the mod protection from NetEase Cloud Music.
    Forum Post from 4pda.ru look above my post. So if i can exchange me with this Dev we could release a new APK together with a
    great translation and the apk works without xposed and the translation module on android 4.4.4 :)

    So thats from the mobile site.

    The next thing, but this is I think the wrong forum, because its for Android and Smartphones, is to translate the
    Windows Client into English or unlock it, that you can use any language you want. If we reach this im very happy. :)

    So that's actualle all from me.

    So if anyone can extract the two files and upload it for me i can continue my work.
    Meanwhile I try to contact the Dev from 4pda to work together :)

    Thx for the support from everyone and all of you are great :)
