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:

  • Support for only seven phone (no tablets)
  • No ICS compatibility

The issue, according to Recognized Developer LennyUK, is as follows:

Basically it needs to think you are on a stock rom with a stock kernel of a supported device. The then you need to be on the correct os and hide root.

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