    hi,

    i'm planning to root and instal custom rom (cyanogen 14 probably) on my LG G3. Is there any way to play Pokmon GO on cyanogen?

    No. What you're asking is impossible because The Pokémon Company and Niantic wanted to prevent people from using root access to hack the game.
    Besides, Pokémon Go is dead.

    Your comment makes no sense at all... First there was a way to do it, i'm unsure if it still works, second how the f*** then hackers are playing if there is no way to play with rooted phone? I mean, they need to root their phone first to play with cheats. And third what do you mean with POGO is dead? It's not like this is the most playable mobile phone game + Niantic is holding a lot of events this summer...

    Wrong.
    You can use Magisk to root your device and still be able to play, also works for other Nintendo games.

    Edit: CyanogenMod is dead, LineageOS is the one to go.

    1. If there is, I've never heard of it. Usually things that big are on my Twitter timeline or something. It may not still work, however.
    2. A majority of them use Android and modified APKs of the game.
    3. It's a joke.

    Stock rom. The only thing I had to do was turn off USB debugging.

    At your current screen. And in heaven
    Well, you can use Magisk. It hides to the app that you are rooted and it has something called SafetyNet for those apps that don't let you use them on a rooted device.

    I know because I've tried it yesterday. The only thing that it bothered me was the fact that it was running slower than before. But I don't know why.

    If you have Cyanogenmod 14, which is now LineageOS you can just disable root in the settings before opening the game and then re-enable it after you're done playing. Absolutely no problem, that's how I use banking apps.

    Feel free to post your instructions here. I do not need GPS spoofing. Just custom rom so my phone can handle more easily this game
