I know many of you were having trouble with the Pokemon Go Cheat/Hack for Android I posted last week since it required a rooted Android device but there’s now a new Pokemon Go Hack for Android that you can do without root.
UPDATE5: October 19th 2016 – This method STILL WORKS up to latest v0.41.4!
UPDATE4: Sept 24th 2016 – This method STILL WORKS on v0.39.0 and v0.39.1 update!
UPDATE3: Sept. 10th 2016 – Niantic has updated to v0.37.0 and this METHOD STILL WORKS ALSO!
UPDATE2: Niantic has updated to v0.35.0 and this METHOD STILL WORKS ALSO!
UPDATE: Niantic has updated to v0.33.0, but this METHOD STILL WORKS!
All you need is any Android smartphone or tablet running on latest Android 6.0 or 6.0.1 Marshmallow. (You can check this under Settings->About Phone->Android Version, if you have newer devices like Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 7, HTC 10, OnePlus 3, or LG G5, you already have Marshmallow.)
Step 1. Download and install FlyGPS Fake GPS App on the Play Store. (UPDATE: Google has removed it from the Play Store, the ones on Google Play Store are FAKE, please grab it from FlyGPS from APKQuick.com). You can download the FlyGPS APK version here and install it manually.
Step 2. Go into Settings->About Phone and hit the “Build number” about 5 times until it says you have enabled Developer mode.
Step 3. Hit the back button once and you will see “Developer Options” menu, tap on that. Scroll down to “Mock Locations” then choose “FlyGPS” app.
Step 4. Go into your Location settings and set your GPS settings to “High Accuracy”.
Step 5. Also make sure “Location history” is set to ON.
Step 6. Launch FlyGPS app and choose where you want to start the game. For example, I chose the nearest metropolitan city near where I live in San Francisco downtown where there are a lot of Pokemons and PokeStops.
Step 7. Tap on the location you set and tap on “GPS Service Run”.
Step 8. Tap on “JoyStick Location Mode – (Pokemon)”.
Step 9. Launch Pokemon Go app and you should now be in the location you set. You can use the Joystick to move around!
Note: This hack does not hide “Mock Locations” which means Niantic will know you are using this hack. But Niantic hasn’t permanently banned people for using this hack. Just use your common sense. If you use this hack to reach Level 30, they will probably ban you permanently. However, if you play Pokemon Go occasionally and for killing time entertainment, they won’t ban you. You may get soft-banned but you can easily spin the wheel at a nearby PokeStop 30+ times to get unbanned or simply wait a few hours which will also unban you. If you want to not get banned and you need this hack for long term, see our original Pokemon Go Cheat/Hack for Android.
