    The new SafteyNet API released by Google allows apps to check for "device compatibility". In other words if your device is rooted the check will always return "false" and the app would disable some of the features or may not work at all. One of the big apps that won't work if you are rooted is Samsung Pay and Android Pay. Last week we took a look at the "Root Cloak" app which hides root, but there is now an xposed framework module that can do the same thing.

    If you are rooted and have Xposed installed on your device you may find that grabbing this module is much more efficient and easy. The xposed module changes the device compatibility check. After applying the module the check will always come back as "true". The app you are trying to use thinks your phone is not rooted and runs like normal. Grab the module from the link below.

    With that module installed I'm still getting an error for Android software and device capability.
    Maybe it needs to be extended to return a generic Android build version and a valid device.
    Right now if you are running a stock rom variant it's not working. Running Jasmin 8.0 on an LG G3.
    I'm running a custom kernel so maybe I'll go back to a stock kernel and see.

    That seems to be the only way to hide root.
