This is an Xposed module (See http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1574401 for more on Xposed) that allows Time Warner's TWC TV app to work when USB debugging is enabled. It should also allow working with VPNs but this has not been tested.

Source code for the module is at https://github.com/Entropy512/XposedTWCTVPatcher

To install:
Install the Xposed Installer APK from the thread linked above
Install the Xposed framework using Xposed Installer
Install the APK linked in this post
Reboot your device after enabling the module in Xposed Installer
Enjoy TWC TV on a rooted device - no more need for a smali-hacked APK, just install it straight from the Play Store

Update to work with newer TWC updates. Sorry this took so long.

The app no longer seems to be checking for root in any way, so this just disables USB debug checks and also attempts to patch VPN detection. VPN detection patching is untested.

1/30/2013:
TWC pushed an update today. ProGuard obfuscation resulted in the name of a method we hooked changing from w to x...

fecking ProGuard...

??/??/2013
Initial release
REMOVED due to TWC app getting updated - grab the latest APK and update the TWC app.

Looks like it's only for Verizon users. It's probably best if someone who can regularly use the APK makes a module to do this.

I'm eventually going to write a very generic high-level guide with tips on how to figure out what an APK is doing.

If you know of anyone who has "fixed" that APK using the old smali-hack method, I can analyze that with androdiff to try and reproduce the techniques used.
