Jailbroken And Rooted Devices Are Officially Unsupported In Pokémon GO

Watch out if you are a Pokémon GO player with a jailbroken iPhone or a rooted Android device as these devices are no longer compatible with the ultra-popular mobile application. Those with jailbroken or rooted devices are being told that “This device, OS, or software is not compatible with Pokémon GO.”

        1. ||Since humans always cheat and often enjoys it specifically when it comes to technology, it’s illogical not to create contingency plans…||

          1. Assuming all humans cheat is a pretty bold statement, Commander.

            In my opinion, when it comes to single player games, if you wanna cheat, I think it’s fine as long as it doesn’t affect anyone else’s experience. But as soon as you start cheating in a multiplayer game, you’ve crossed a line and deserve to get kicked/banned.

  1. Something tells me this could be a bug with something they’re trying to test out. Might be why the update hasn’t popped up on the app store yet for me.

      1. Ahh I see, what about ios? I heard their spoofing stuff was sideloaded and didnt need to be jailbroken? Even so, its not gonna stop people from bypassing it anyways.

  2. Absolutely idiotic. There’s a giant percentage of Android devices that are rooted, and a lot of the not as well known brands come pre-rooted or have some type of root access pre installed(My Oneplus). I’ve invested many hours into the game, and I’m not letting it go to waste because of this, so I spent the entire day trying to install this Magisk thing. Really wish I didn’t have to do that, big time sink and difficult to get working, but I just want to play the game you guys made. Hope the inevitable active user drop thats gonna come with this sends a message.

  3. First of all, the more features that get added without the radar being update the more I get pissed off. This is getting absurd. The most basic feature is still broken. Buddy system? You can make Pokemon follow me and earn candies but you still can’t help me find Pokemon? And you’re even trying to block rooted and jailbroken devices? Stupid and a waste of time. Anyone who has jailbroken or rooted their phone knows there are bypasses to prevent certain apps from detecting the jailbreak/root. I give it a few days before this isn’t even an issue. Stop wasting your time “fixing” these things and work on that radar damnit!
