Root Cloak Plus for Cydia Substrate Users

Not too long ago, we discovered that there was a solution for those wanting root but being unable to use it. There are several reasons why you may not be able to have root access on your Android device, such as applications that do not run if root access is detected. These apps can include anything from corporate apps to TV apps, and even communication-related apps as well (TV streaming, etc). The previously covered solution involves the Root Cloak Xposed Module developed by XDA Forum Member devadvance. This module essentially hides root shell from select applications, rather than disabling it. However for various reasons, not everyone can run Xposed framework.

Now, the same developer is at it again, and has released a new version of Root Cloak. For starters, this new version improves its (growing) compatibility list. However, the biggest difference between Root Cloak Plus and its predecessor is that this version runs on Cydia Substrate rather than Xposed framework. The developer also mentions that some new features are present, such as the ability to hide items in the build.prop such as test-keys.

Needless to say, you need to have Cydia Substrate installed on your device to be able to use this. And if you are on Kit Kat (4.4+), you will need to change the SELinux mode to “permissive.” This can be easily accomplished by swinging by the Play Store and downloading this app (or searching for “SELinux Mode Changer”). And of course, you also need to be rooted.

If you have been looking for an upgrade to Root Cloak, as well as a reason to try out Cydia Substrate, now is your chance. As always, any feedback, suggestions, and most importantly, bugs are welcomed by the dev. You can find more information in the original thread.
