    Has anyone here had any luck bypassing Nintendo's Anti-Root Bullshit? Not everyone roots for the sake of piracy or cheating. It's really damn annoying that some developers cant understand that. I personally root for the sake of being able to use external storage for my games. Most mid to low end Android devices just have shoddy storage solutions and require rooting to allow for installs of multiple large games. People, feel free to share your thoughts :)

    If there was any progress, you would've heard about it. People freaked the fuck out when the webkit exploit came out (which was cool, but pretty much pointless in the grand scheme of things), so I can't even imagine what would happen if a root exploit was found. But I do think Nintendo would have went hard on security on the switch, due to the numerous blunders in securing their previous consoles (Wii U and 3DS).

    Are we talking about Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes?

    In that case, any method of bypassing SafetyNet check works, which would be either Chainfire's SuperSU + suhide, or Magisk tools which would be Magisk + MagiskSU, and enable MagiskHide. As far as I know there's no way to bypass SafetyNet with Xposed enabled (So if you install it like me, you have to disable it (Magisk only) or uninstall it).

    Alright let me clarify how to fix this.
    Chainfire do NOT recommend Suhude, it's obsolete and won't be supported.

    If you want to bypass the anti-root thing, that is actually Google's own "SafetyNet".

    Download Magisk Manager.
    It will install Magisk, magisk is a framework that can do all fun stuff.

    Remove any old root software you have. Magisk have MagiskSU inbuilt and will takecare of it now days.
    You also need to activate "Magisk Hide". This will hide that you got root installed.
    I also recommend activating so you can use apps like Adaway.

    EDIT: If you want to get Xposed working if you got an older android. Install Xposed for Magisk.

    You know, this is referring to anti-jailbreak/anti-root on mobile ninty apps right? cause you seem to think this is the switch section.

    I haven't been able to play Pokémon Go for a number of months, and I've lost my interest in it anyway, but FE:H still works fine.

    To be honest, you should just go with Magisk right away. It's such a nice feeling not to worry about the SafetyNet crap. And it's so pain free now days to install Magisk as well. They really streamlined it.
