Sky Go Running On ICS, Unsupported Devices–Hide Your Root Though
If you read our previous story on Sky’s new on-the-go app, then you are already familiar with the issues many users are faced with. If not then here’s the tl:dr:

Although there is no sure fire solution yet, you can find the potential fixes in the original thread.
