Pokemon Go Hack for Android Lollipop/KitKat/Marshmallow! [No Root][Tutuapp]


In our last Pokemon Go Hack, we showed you how to play the game with a joystick but it required an Android device running on Android 6.0/6.0.1 Marshmallow.  A lot of you were requesting a non-root method to play the game with a joystick on older Android devices.  Well, we found another great solution that works on all Android versions including Android Marshmallow, Lollipop, KitKat, and even Jelly Bean!
UPDATE: This hack also works on latest v0.33.0 and v0.35.0!  For v0.35.0, you just need to keep using the modded v0.33.0 instead of updating!

If you have Android 6.0/6.0.1, you can try the easier method here.

Now, the Pokemon Go Hack isn’t for you to cheat the game so you can get to Level 40 and take over your local gym.  If you do that you will get banned permanently.  But this hack is for those of you who cannot walk outside, perhaps disabled or live in a hot/cold country.  And perhaps you just want to try out the game without walking.  Whatever the reason, we highly suggest you to use this hack if you are not serious about reaching Level 40.   While it may help those who are not able to go outside to enjoy the game, please use common sense and don’t ruin others’ experiences by abusing it.

With that said, here’s how to do it.

Step 1. Check your Android version.  This Pokemon Go Hack will work on most Android versions including Android 6.0/6.0.1 Marshmallow, 5.0/5.0.1/5.0.2/5.1.1 Lollipop, 4.4/4.4.2/4.4.3/4.4.4 KitKat, and 4.2/4.2.1/4.2.2 Jelly Bean.


Step 2. Download and install Tutuapp APK.


Once downloaded, you may have to use a file explorer like ES File Explorer to install the Tutuapp APK.  You may also have to check “Unknown Sources” ON in Settings.


Step 3. Once Tutuapp APK is installed, launch the app.  If the app asks for “Application permissions”, just make sure everything is off so the app cannot access your phone.

Simply install Tutuapp APK but YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RUN IT!  But you do have to have it installed for the modded Pokemon Go app to work!


Step 4. Tap on the Pokemon app to download the hacked Pokemon Go app.

UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS: Download the modded Pokemon Go Hacked APK v0.33.0 here instead.  This also works on v0.35.0 update (by not updating!).


Step 5. Once downloaded, use your file explorer app to install the APK file.



Step 6. Make sure Location is turned on!


Step 7. Launch the Pokemon Go app (in Chinese characters) and enjoy Pokemon Go using joystick.  You can also make the joystick go faster by tapping on the icon like shown below:


If you want to teleport to another location where there’s more Pokemons(such as New York, San Francisco, LA), press on the globe icon.


Then input your GPS coordinates here.

For San Francisco, input:

For New York, input:

For Los Angeles, input:
