Google Video With Root Check Disabled Leaked

Aug 16th, 2011Comments Off on Google Video With Root Check Disabled Leaked

Many users were excited when they upgraded to the new Android Market and Google Videos app, only to find that Google had blocked viewing rented videos on any rooted device.

A modified version of the Google Videos app has been leaked online, which enables rooted users to play rented movies on their devices.  (requires Android 2.2+)


This APK is a modified version of the that bypasses the root & tamper checks. This apk file will fix both the standalone version of Google Videos and the Market integrated version of Google Videos. This apk should work on any Android device (2.2+) and with any theme (2.2+) as it does not make changes to the system folder or anything like that. This apk should work fine with unrooted phones, but if for some reason it doesn’t use the normal app.

This bypass doesn’t affect the actually DRM licensing, it will still generate a proper license key, you will still be limited to the normal viewing times, you will still have to pay to rent movies, etc. Don’t ask, because it’s not happening. It just bypasses/disabled the root check.

This apk has been tested on both 2.2 and 2.3 and on the following devices (Although as stated previous it should work on any device with root); Moment, Optimus, Droid Incredible, Thunderbolt, Xoom, Transform, Nook (CM7), G1 (CM7)
