Root Cloak Stupid

Disclaimer

You should not use this, really. If you do, you are on your own, I am not responsible of any damage you do on your device(s) and I also do not offer support. Reporting issues is probably waste of time.

Info

This is very stupid method, how to temporarily cloak root (su binary) in CyanogenMod 13 (C13). I had an app, that checks, if there is file called /system/bin/su or /system/xbin/su and forced to me quit if it does. I wanted to use that app, and I also wanted to keep my device rooted. So I worked around it with this little stupid hack (I am not a fan of Xposed and its modules, that’s why I did this).

I have tested this for 5 minutes on Oneplus 3. Not compatible with SuperSU. Survives dirty flashing of new nightly.

Install

Just create flashable .zip of content of root-cloak-stupid folder and flash it via TWRP.

Usage

  • have root enabled in your CyanogenMod (developer options)
  • in terminal/shell type rcs
    • hint: you can use something like $cripter and run script with rcs command just by tapping once.

Uninstall

Go figure ;o)

Problems

Do NOT reboot while root “cloaked” by this script.
