What is the problem of Pokmon Go and root?
The sanction by Niantic is quite clear, because this it consists of blocking all the users that root is detected in the phone. How does it do it? Well, the last update of Pokmon Go brings with it a method of detection that mocks the access permissions to the file system to search for the existence of TWRP.
And if that makes fun of them, because Pokmon GO manages to find the TWRP folder even if you don't give the application permission to read the storage of the mobile, as it records all the phone storage.
The search for Pokmon GO it only consists of verifying the mere existence of the TWRP folder in its storage and, if he manages to find it, then the game will block you.
