What does this module do?
Some apps, such as finance/banking, enterprise, or audio/video apps will not run if your phone is rooted. This module allows you to run apps that detect root without disabling root. You select from a list of your installed apps (or add a custom entry), and using a variety of methods, it will completely and transparently hide the signs of root from that app.

Get Started Here
If you have Xposed already installed, you can simply install RootCloak from the Xposed modules repo.
More detail instructions for how to use RootCloak are available here: https://github.com/devadvance/rootcl...-use-RootCloak
RootCloak is available on the Xposed Modules Repo here: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.d...nce.rootcloak2

I exported the module with just the minSdkVersion changed to 10 (2.3.3). I don't have a 2.3.3 device available, so I won't upload it to the repo yet.
If you have a 2.3.3 device, would you mind testing it?

Do you plan to share the source codes? I would like to customize the module to the Polish programs. I did a similar program but did not have time to develop it.

Hi,

Yelo TV not working

EDIT: There was an app that worked for Yelo TV but it was removed from the store. It was called "temp root remover JB+" but it was removed.

Did you add the application in RootCloak settings, and then force close it (if it was already running)?

If it still doesn't work, please send me a PM about, that way I can give you an email to send the APK to.

I just successfully tested IKO!

I haven't decided about releasing the source code yet. That might make it easier for companies to bypass the module.

AirWatch still detects root. I assume it will be the same problem as Good For Enterprise.
